1100 Series #2
Marvin Gooding’s collection of Massey Ferguson 1100 tractors, as described in the feature story, are very unique. Marvin lives on a beautiful farm near Tiffin, Ohio. The day these photos were shot was probably the nicest day of a truly spectacular fall. We couldn’t use all of the great pictures so I thought we could share the outtakes on this new section of the Legacy Quarterly website.
Marvin’s other 1100 prototype. As with all of Marvin’s collection, the tractors are all in daily use and in perfect original condition.
The 1150 parked by the Gooding family farm pond. Notice the swans on the pond and the well maintained pastures in the background.

Members of Marvin’s family from left to right: Marvin, his wife Peg, daughter Patsy Crabill, granddaughter Cassandra, grandson Aaron, daughter-in-law Christie and son Matt.
The three “Red Giants” lined up in the early evening fall sky.
Each issue will be packed with full color photos of tractors and equipment that represents the full Massey family line: giant steam engines from the Canadian Sawyer-Massey days, early horse drawn Massey Harris implements, Parrett, Wallis, Bull, General tractors, Massey Harril built tractors implements and combines, plus articles about the precision engineered Ferguson line of tractors and equipment. To complete the family line up: Massey Ferguson tractors, equipment and the entire line of lawn and garden tractors will be presented in each and every issue.
Massey Harris was not only known for tractors and the finest combines on the market but the Farmer's Handy Catalog featured products for the home and farm: everything from water rams, bicycles, and freezers to kitchen ranges and wood stoves. Each issue will have a section, Massey Harris for the Home and Farm, that will examine all of the unique things that made Massey Harris such an influential company.

Also look forward to a section called 'RFD' where readers can send in pictures of their own tractors and restorations, pose questions for other readers, search for parts or just establish contacts with other like-minded collectors.
