Massey-Harris 12-20
I know some of you have been waiting a while to see this one, it is the latest arrival here in Lincolnshire for 2012 and a tractor which I am very fond of.

I remember sitting on my dad's knee many years ago and him telling me all the stories about the three 12-20's which they ran for many years, it was those discussions which sparked my interest in finding a Massey Harris tractor in 1970, the first Massey we bought was my red Pacemaker and since then the collection has continued to grow.

It took me from 1970 to 2008 to finally locate the 12-20 which grandfather bought new for my dad in 1934, I still have the original tool kit, instruction and parts book for that tractor and one day would like to get it back home.

In the meantime I have always been looking for a similar M-H 12-20 and this year Lyn Jones of L&L Vintage Tractors of South Wales had located one in Eastern Canada, so the deal was done in October and I collected the tractor and brought it back to Lincolnshire. The serial number is 105606.

Here you see the tractor on the day when I collected it from Lyn's near Newcastle Emylin.
