A co-worker of mine and me got talkin he mentioned his grandpa used to farm with a 55 Massey, of course I asked if he still had.......

I ran the serial number, I forget the year but it is a last year model, it drives but doesn't turn over on the starter, brakes are seized,tins not bad but they cut out the bottom grille bar to do a hydralic repair and fenders have been backed into objects several times, and the rear end oil looked like half melted icecream..... but at 800 bucks I always liked the Massey Harris look and I'm sick of tuning carbs wanting another diesel.

Just never drag race in a Massey will not win
