My 400 as found, this combine came from Gloucestershire a one owner one driver machine very well looked after during its life, in the toolbox it contained everything you would probably need out in the field in emergencies ie spare chain links, spare pin for gear linkage,blades, rivets,knife point, wire, and twine,also a set of brushes for air pre cleaner screen, and radiator, also a few tools, just this alone tells you that the previous owner respected his machine.
This 400 was delivered to farm new, February 1966 although it was registered later, on a 1968 plate, the serial number tells us it was built 9 machines behind Howards 400 so they could of sat on the production line that same day!! who knows. but we do know they were sold by Birds of Gloucester who we have found out only sold 2 400s that year !! so they well could have sat in there yard prior to delivery! quite amazing then we ended up with these pair!.

Great site, some cracking machines! I am looking for an early Massey that I can drive on the road with the header attached. Do you have any advice on model and / or where I can find a good one? Alfie
Alfie, Tractor publications various magazines, e-bay,farmers guide! But it might be a while to find an 8ft cut!! .it will need patience!! For sure. Regards Colin
Colin Thanks. An 8ft 6 400 would be perfect, but happy to go older as size is key. Where would you start looking? A
Alfie you would be ok with a 10ft cut!! The 400 is my favourite!! If you are very lucky sometimes once in a blue moon!! You can find an 8ft 6 cut based on a 400 series or if you prefer an older 780! I
