Just an update, I have discovered that these MTD tractors were rebadged in the UK as Wolseley 16 and were apparently painted in gold.

Here's a photo of a Wolseley 10 and a 16.

What a very British name. I love it.

Wolseley was a British car manufacturer producing quality cars with leather interiors and Walnut burr dashboards but was merged into the ill fabled British Leyland in the '70s. I don't think this is the same company though but one thing in common is the quality.

I was stationed in the Air Force 72' 73' at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk and absolutely loved my time there.

These are a couple of new badges to add to the list for sure. The grille on that 16 looks like maybe not original because of no bump for the s/g. Is one of these the one your wanting.

Sawdust,

The one I would like is the red/grey one at the beginning of this post.

Cheers

Suffolk is a lovely part of England and is regarded as being quiesentially English due to its red brick and thatched houses and windmills coupled with the winding lanes and the open expanse of sky (well at least to us Brits on this crowded Isles!).

Here's another MTD 990/ Woseley 10 on the bay in the UK. The seller say it was repainted red but should be gold. So there are two knocking around the UK!

That grille was used on the "Columbia" branded tractors and is correct without the s/g bump. The "White" grille also didn't have a s/g bump. As far as I know, there were 3 basic grilles used on the '90s and '60s: vertical bars, White, and Columbia. The normal vertical bar grilles have 3 versions: high bump, low bump, and no bump (for the later starter/alternator Briggs.)

I decided to forgo this one, unfortunately as I have just bought a Bolens Rode a Matic which is noticeably smaller than the 990. However, having said that I will consider one next time as I am really taken by it and have enjoyed learning all about it from you guys.

I have yet to tell the wife about my latest purchase.......

These were actually a 960, not a 990 as they had 12' rear tires and a manual trans axle. Still great tractors.
