Looking to see if anyone can tell me anything about this mf10.  I know the early models had aluminum nose and dash before switching to plastic, but this has cast iron.  Also i have never seen one with this type of hood.  Can not fine any kind of model or serial number on it, just some numbers cased in the steering arm.  dxc 102020 then below that is g.1.120.  I also think the motor is not original.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is one nice tractor. It resembles the 135,165 more than the regular 10's. Could this be like a "U.K." model ?

thats an odd number for the steering piece isnt it? most massey parts # have like an m1 or m2 etc at the end even amf used massey parts/ number. it has the old style mower deck/ mounts.... quite an odd piece there but doesnt look to be in bad shape. i went out and looked it doesnt resemble the amf grill at all either... :tapping_fingers:

Not quite sure what to make of that. So much of it is standard MF10 or 12G, and so

much isn't. Sure would be nice to see a whole lot more detailed pictures. Whatever it is

that you've found there, it sure is neat. There's no way, that someone would go to the effort

of casting a nose cone just to build a one off. Is the dash cast too?

And the sides of the grill, is that cast too?

Wow I wonder if you have a "Proto type" tractor there.

So much is standard MF10 or MF12 and so much is not. ???

If you're going to snap more pictures, could you get one of the underside

of the frame, under the engine. Curious to see if it has a center rib.

The hood. nose piece. and dash look like AMF.  AMF called them 1010s.

AMF also had a cast metal grill.

Thats what i was thinking.The AMF were very similar but had noticable differences.I've personally never seen any of them.I'm wondering if this was a leftover that they repainted to sell as a massy.Kind of like the patio John dears that were painted green.That is a neat Tractor

Dash and sides of the grill are cast. Center of the grill is removable. Will get some more detailed pictures this week.

Are the rear fenders steel?

They almost look like fiberglass.
