Hi, I have a Minn. Moline BF Wide frontend, I think it is a 53' but the SER# is 57800069. I have been told that their was no SER# that started with 578, but some say it should be R6538? It's not the high-crop. It does have a 3-point hitch on it. Needs new exhaust manifold. I will try to re store, not as a show tractor, but redo the engine and clean it up with a whole pait job. O.K. here a couple of pics.
Thanks,
Chris

The model you have is designated as BFW(wide). In 1953 1034 Averys were made with the latter ones having the 578 MM prefix. The records don't show how many had MM serial numbers.

Thanks for the reply, so is the 53' BF the last year for the BF, and did MM change to yellow from the Avery red in 52' or 53' ?
