Over the last while I have added more Masseys to the collection.First is a 55 Western and yesterday I picked up a rear housing with all the components in it for a 55 plus a 55 Diesel that needs engine and tires but otherwise is pretty well all there. By the end of the month I am hoping to have added an 81 Std. that I am looking at as well.

This is the Western as it was found


This little jewel is already in the family collection and I am buying it back from my brother.
Will be geting pictures of the latest additions and the hopeful one this coming weekend.

Picked up the back half of one 55 Diesel and the complete 55 Diesel today.A dump rake and a horse drawn MH sickle mower mysteriously ended up on the trailer as well. As I was hooking up to the trailer an MH 81 Standard joined the ride. I will be going back to the same place in a month or so to pick up 3 W6 McCormick tractors. Not sure what it is but they all seem to follow me home. 18 of them to date if my count is right.

Found another 44 Standard in Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories of all places.In the process of tracking down who owns it.

It is in pretty rough shape but if I could get it, the story on it would be quite spectacular. And yes the white stuff is real snow.

I never really cared a lot for snow.....but those old Massey's are sure neat to bring home. Would love to have a 44 Std or a 55. Not too many of either around here.
And how many of each did you say you wanted to have? They are everywhere up here. I have 3- 55s, 1- 555 and 3- 44s as it stands so far.

One thing is for certain in this part of the world.If you had two tractors in those days, one was a Massey 44 and the other was a John Deere D.
