Well it's not a ferguson but a Massey none the less. Wanted one since I was little and now here it is. All original as far as I can tell will hydraulic lift to boot!! Picked it up today from an auction several miles from home. Snow plow, dirt plow, and 2 sickle bars included, 1 is BRAND new and never used. Probably one of the best running and original ponys I've seen with original books to. Needless to say I STOLE IT for what I paid.

I think you did great.  The Pony was always a smooth running little tractor.

Got real lucky. It was the smallest tractor in the row and I suppose everyone was looking for heavy equipment.

They are fantastic little go getters and that one is in VERY nice condition.
The Pony is the smallest of the group and with only 62 cu in, you will need to watch your expectations, but they will do a surprising amount of work with (I think 11 Hp)

I have always joked that you don't get on them so much as put them on... No known graceful way to climb aboard and Once you're on them, you want to stay there until the job is done. Love the tractor, just not the mounting procedure.

I currently am waiting for parts on a Gray one,

In '54, when the two Companies were beginning the merger, they still had both dealer lines. The Ferguson Dealers didnt have a competing piece to the Allis G and other, small "Crop Farmer" units. Massey and Ferguson came up with the idea of painting some Ponies Gray and selling them at Ferguson Dealers. The same with the implements.
The gray one we have was one of the ones "recalled" by Massey because it didnt sell at the Fergy Dealer and then it was repainted red with new decals. The red is starting to peel off and the gray is showing underneath.
