Massey Harris Pony

While Massey-Harris had success with larger tractors, they wanted to try to help out the small farmers, too. With this new endeavor in mind, they released the Massey-Harris Pony. Produced from 1947 to 1957, the Pony was a 4×2 two-wheel drive tractor with a single plough. It had the same general styling as other Massey-Harris’, but the width between the front two wheels could be adjusted. The tractor was five feet tall and had a wheel base of sixty-six inches.

The engine used on the Pony was a four cylinder Continental N62. It was gasoline-ran and liquid cooled, and had natural aspiration. The three-speed transmission was unsychronized, and had one reverse speed. When tested, there were 10.43hp at the drawbar and 11.62hp at the belt. Manual steering was the only steering option on the Pony, and the brakes were differential mechanical contracting bands.

The serial numbers for the Massey-Harris Pony are located on the front, right side of the frame, and coincide with production year as follows:

1947: PGA1001-PGA1381 | 1948: PGA1382-PGA5500 | 1949: PGA5501-PGA10816
1950: PGA10817-PGA13590 | 1951: PGA13591-PGA17993 | 1952: PGA17994-20570
1953: 20571-23148 | 1954: 23149-25726 | 1955: 25727-28304 | 1956: 28305-30882
1957: 30883+

    I have two Massey Harris Pony Tractors for sale. One is 1949, and the other a 1952.I parked the 1949 when the starter motor gave out, and parked the 1952 when the carburater gave out. The 1952 was rolled by the previous owner and the steering wheel shaft is bent but replaceable.Will sell one, or both for a decent price. Would also deliver to Western states of Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, and I Idaho, and western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan for fuel recovery, trailer rental, etc. If interested, contact me for more information and pictures at Thanks. I am located on the Canada/U.S border 35 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia.

    I have a 1948, #PGA 3160, has a loader and runs and drives great. How much do you think it’s worth? Paint is slightly faded, starter has been rebuilt.

    I have restored a Massey Harris Pony 1951 or 52 possibly for sale. I was in a tractor club several years ago and I did 90% of the work myself. I took it down to the last nut and bolt, cleaned it , primed it and coated it with two 2 coats of paint. The motor was rebuilt, new tires, new carbuerator, new side panels, and new battery. It has a few leaks I have not tried yet to stop. I am not a mechanic so I haven’t got the carb completely adjusted yet but it runs great sitting idle. I have over $10,000 in it but I know I won’t near that amount so I am open for offers.
    I also have another 1952 Massey Harris Pony completely torn apart sitting in my shop ready to begin the clean-up process if any one is interested in it. Again give me an offer
