Massey Ferguson 135 Serial Numbers

Posted by The 135 Webmaster on May 13, 2010

These are the starting serial numbers for the Massey Ferguson 135 for each year of build.  Production ran for 11 years between 1964 and 1975, with many of the tractors still in use on farm today.  The tractor identification plate that has the serial number stamped on is located on the instrument panel, just below the steering wheel.

1964 641000001
1965 641001909
1966 641014871
1967 9A10001
1968 9A39836
1969 9A63158
1970 9A87325
1971 9A107519
1972 9A128141
1973 9A152025
1974 9A182761
1975 9A207681


The majority of tractos built for the UK and market used the Perkins AD3.152 engine which was well liked for its good starting performance.  There is no mistaking the noise of the 45.5hp engine as it is working around the farm yard.
If you are having any problems with your AD3.152 engine or are about to undertake a full rebuild then you may find the Perkins 3A.152 Engine Rebuild DVD useful (available from our sister website –  This DVD was filmed for the MF35, but most of the information also pertains to the AD3.152 engine.

    Just a few minutes ago we looked up the sn on our 1975 MF 135 that my husband has had since brand new in 1975. It starts with 9A204 as opposed to 9A207 starting serial numbers above. Could we have misread our SN?

    I am working on Massey Ferguson 135, 1968 tractor and the identification plate is missing. Is there any where else the number might be stamped on the body of the tractor? If not how do I go about getting it registered for vintage shows and road runs.

    I have MF 135 (my Dads) which shows a serial number MF 135 SN 124401 which is to the right hand side below the instrument panel , to the right of the steering wheel. This number doesn’t co-inside with the chassis or frame number which is on the log book which reads MF 135 SN 152UA 134752D.
    Any information of when it was made would be appreciated

    I have a sn 9AII744 what year is it.

    • Bobby Williams said

      I believe yours to be a 1967 model because one number in the serial # is missing prior to 1971. They added another number to the serial # in 1971. I hope this will help, and I hope the info is correct. I am having problems with my serial # also, on my 135.

    My 135 has lost it’s serial number plate, but the number stamped on the engine is 37111500x . Does this help to age it ?

    • Calvin Acree said

      Mark, I have a Uk 135. It has an AD3-152 Perkins Diesel with a 37111500/2 number on it. Its a 1966 year model. I figured that out by the number on the dash under the right of steering wheel.There on the plate it reads 447-512. 1966 numbers start at 30,000 and 1967 numbers start at 60,000.

  23. David Hender said

    I have just bought a MF 135. The serial number reads 2135 803562. This does not seem to tie in with anything that I have read before on serial numbers. I believe it to be an earlyish model as I am assuming that for a 13 inch grill, you measure vertically

  24. David said

    How do i find a serial number on my Massey 135. I bought it and the panel with serial plate on is missing.Please could you tell me what to do next as I would like to put a original number plate on it. The owner gave me a reg number but I don’t know if it’s correct. Thanks

  25. Paul said

    I sold a 135 purchased new in 1972, belonged to a family member who passed away. The data plate says TO35 SGM204658 yet it has all the markings of a 135 it has power steering and a pto the person who I sold it to said someone must have changed the hood and grill to say 135 he says it is a TO35 not a 135.but it looks nothing like a 35
    please email if you can help at

    I have a Massey ferg 135 that I just bought. There is not a plate with a serial number on the front dash.
    On the right side of the cylinder head– it looks like there would be a number there but there isn’t anymore.
    Under the front oil pan, there are numbers: 1412-64
    On the Generator: 1100437-5B-4.
