This is just as it sounds guys.I have 2 tractors I have pulled fron the crusher to save a few parts I seen but I would like to know what the tractors are so I 'm not working in the blind here.

 

I think the one was a tan color win new and has been painted many times

 

Any help would be great

They look like an early to mid 1960's round hooded 725, Landlord, or Broadmoor.  The Allis equivalents are the B1, B10, Big Ten, etc.  The experts will be here shortly.

They are not 700 or 725 or B1. They had different dashes (1/4" plate of steel). One or both are either a 9 hp Landlord, 101, 2010 or 2012. If the front wheels are original it is a 2012. It is really hard to tell because the pictures are just so so and can't see the grills. The one with the burnt seat could be an AC early B10, Big Ten, Late B10 or B12. Like with the other if the front wheels are original it may be a B12.
All would have been built between 1964 and 1966. Most parts are going to be interchangeable.

Kenny, The one that you think might be tan, is it gold by chance. If so, it's a Simplicity built M/W Squire 9 or 10. Can you get any numbers off the engine? We can get close with the engine numbers.

The main point on those two that you have is that the same parts were used on a lot of Simplicity and AC GTs. You did a good thing saving them. I would try to build one out ofthe two. There are a many attachments for them around. Check out www.SimpleTractors.com for history, sales brochures and other info. My favorite GTs are Bolens because they are very stong and get work done. My second favorite are the ones like you have there. They are not as strong, as Bolens but, are faster and more fun to play with. Good Luck, Rick

My thought was an Allis because of the steering wheel.

Steering wheels are definately from either species. Allis were originally white with the exception of the B12

That's the problem Brian sel plates are gone or not readable this one tractor must have been painted 20 times but the paint on the bottom looks to be a lite tan color.I hae seen the Wards tractors and I had a early Allis don't look right for them

We really need better photos to tell much else. A shot from the grill side could solve the issue. The AC yellow can fade out to a tan looking color under certain conditions.

Allis Chalmers had a different style seat than that, but Simplicity had one like that.

Those pictures are not of the same tractor. I am talking about the one with the pan seat (first one).

I looked a little closer at the edge of the grill on the one with the pan seat and it looks to be a simplicity.

The early B10 had an expanded metal grill as well but if the front wheels are original than it isn't a B10.
