Massey Harris 2 wheel tractor??

On e bay there is what is being described as a Massey Harris 2 wheel tractor. It appears to be similar to a David Bradley garden tractor. Did Massey ever make anything like this? Just curious. I don't have the money to bid, but if it's the real thingmaybe someone will add it to their collection.

Thanks for the link.

I don't see anything in those pictures that makes me say that is a Massey Harris.  Wonder why they think that?

Could be an early Simplicity sold by Montgomery Ward starting in 1937.

That is as close as I can guess.

Here is the model K Briggs and Stratton engine information.

Hope that help someone!

HI Steve,

Thanks for the tip on the 2 wheeler.  I did send the guy a question about it but doubt if we get much since his name was bb.trader!! We will see but I have never seen one advertised but as always - you can never say never with Massey!!  Parlor Stoves????  Amazing how paint makes the piece!!


At this point I would tell you to save your money!!

I sent a question to the seller asking how he determined it was a Massey Harris. His responce was, that he was selling it for a friend and this was the imformation provided to him. Said he's going to ask for more imfo and will post it when he gets it.

Ok, seller has added more imformation. Not much more but some. Says that PERU is on the left wheel hub and PER11 or PERL1 on the right. Like I said some but not much.

Hi Steve,

I had an interaction with the guy today.  He is "selling it for someone else" so doesn't have much information.  I shared that I was not aware of a 2 wheeled tractor being made by MH but you can never say "never" with MH.  I wished him the best.  I think he is a little nervous about calling it a MH, as well.  Looks like he is getting some action on it.

Gary I've had 2 interactions with the seller over the last couple of days and he basicly told me the same thing.
I know very little abut massey in comparison to some on this site, nor do I have the money that this could sell for if it's authentic plus shipping or picking it up.
just didn't want it to go to scrap if it's a real mccoy.
