Only Survivor of the Series: 1946 Massey-Harris 101 Senior
Sep 28, 2010
You're looking at an extremely rare classic tractor. Only seven M-H 101 Senior Orchard models were built, and this is the only known survivor.
The 101 Senior Series was built in Racine, Wisc., from 1942 until 1946. It featured a 6-cyl. Continental industrial engine with a bore and stroke of 3 5/16" x 4 3/8". The motor had a rated speed of 1,500 rpm on the drawbar and was rated at both 1,500 and 1,800 rpm on the belt. At maximum rpm, it nearly produced 40 belt hp. The M-H 101 Junior had a 4-cyl. Continental engine.

This Massey-Harris collector specializes in standard tread models, including rare orchard versions. He does some restoring, farms out a few. Bill has about two dozen total, from cannibalized to pristine restorations. "Parts for older Masseys are almost impossible to find, so you buy extra tractors," the Show Me State collector points out.
