My cousin collects Massey Harris tractors. He has 71 of them and they are all drivable. They are all stored in 3 large steel pole barn buildings . He claims he has every model that Massey Harris made. One model was made in Canada only. They only made 9 of them. They were made with a Chrysler industrial V-8 industrial engine for power. He has 3 of the nine made , only one runs and the other two are parts tractors.
In addition he has 3 Wallace tractors that were manufactured by Wallace in the early 1900’s Massey - Harris bought out wallace and started building tractors using the Massey Harris name.
He is very active in the Red River Valley Steam Thrashers organization. He has a Rumley Oil Pull that’s an very large an old single cylinder gas tractor, a Case Steam engine and a Waterloo. Boy steam engine. Those three are stored in sheds at Rollagg, MN. Where the thrashers reunion takes place yearly.
Every year they show case a different tractor manufacturer. On the year that they showcase Massey-Harris he hauls all of them up there to display. It is large undertaking getting them 40 some miles over to Rollagg. He recruits all of the relatives to help. It a lot of fun and all of the relatives are eager to help.
He says he is not the largest Massey collector there is, but he must be one of the top 5.
