Several of our members have managed to save some of the rarest of the Massey GT family, the Executives. Predating the AMF and Snapper designed units, these were built by Duro Corp (MotoMower) for Massey.

If you have one of these gems, please feel free to post pics here. Here we go guys, Executives on Parade.

Here are all I have for now. I guess I never knew they were "rare gems"! As you can see though mine is far from an original survivor.

Here are some pictures of my MF 7E. One when I first got it and the rest as I progress on it. After its all done though I will be passing it along to someone who can appreciate it more then I could. (maybe I can get an AC 720 for it..)

I finally got my hands on this little ole girl this week.
I've been stalking it for about a year and a half.
My best guess says it's a 1963, same as the MF7Es.
It's in rough shape, but doable. I think the original B&S 4 might even run.
Another winter project.
Here's some pics. Basically, how I got it, except for a bath, and some tin
straightening of the hood.

Spending way too much time hunting, but that is part of the hobby I really enjoy.

Yes, I think it was also built by Duro Corp. Here is a picture of a Motomower. Looks like the same, except for......

The pic of the Lady in blue is out of the 1963 executive brochure. The year the MF7E was made.

Trying to figure out the date on the MF24s Deluxe.
The page DH1 posted is from a 1967 brochure.
The MF24s D has the aluminum steering wheel in that pic.
The MF8E from 1965, and maybe 1964 didn't have the aluminum wheel.
I have a manual(pdf) for the MF24s D that is dated 1970.
MTF serial # sticky says the MF24s D was only produced in 1967.

That aluminum wheel is suspect.

We need to know if you are restoring completely since these are before pics! Do you have the battery cover? Mine was long gone when I got it and never even knew what it looked like until a month or so ago when I found this site!
