A Versatile garden tractor? I googled it and came up empty.

 

Has any one ever seen one of these, or is it a repaint of something else?

The grill and dash looks to me like something that was built from a Massey

To my knowledge Versatile never made an GT or small farm tractors.  They specialized in the large, and I mean LARGE field tractors.  Articulated was their specialty.  Owned as part of Case IH now.  My neighbor has one and he let me run it once with a 36' tandem disk.  Talk about a beast !

I've been studying some videos and pictures online. I agree it started as an MF 12. It looks like the nose and hood have been stretched to accommodate a larger engine. I suspect he just added a piece to cover the stock headlights.

 

I'm debating a trade for my articulated or my little Ford. depends what it has for a driveline.

I do remember the big Versatiles, my uncles (not a typo, they also had D9 Cats, scrapers, and loaders) had one.

Drive line should be the same if they put the original variable pulley on the new engine, one would think ? Noel.
