I like those tractors cool.
My Granpa first ordered the JD A in the spring of 1947 but because of WWII there was a steel shortage so they had to wait till late spring of 1949 to take possession of the tractor. My Dads first tractor was a super MD Farmal he was red till 1965 then bought a 4020 diesel the rest as they say is history. How about you , always Massy in your sheds ? Oh by the way how is the lay of the land where you are in Indiana?
That's neat! My dad bought his first tractor in '84, a MF 1155 and ever since then we've had Massey. His first combine was a Massey too, a MF 540. When my dad was growing up, they had other makes through the years(JD, Oliver, Ford and, before he retired, my Grandpa had a Case). My dad learned to plow with his Grandpa's Ford 9N.
The land here is pretty flat. We do have some small hills. They can be quite rocky(not good for the machinery). These pictures will help show what the land is like.
