I don't know much about this. From my research it seems to be a late fifties simplicity garden tractor. The motor does run but it is missing belts and pulleys to make it move. $75 obo. (574) 870-4709

That is either a Springfield or a Toro, I don't remember which.

Our craigslist poster's research was obviously a little too shallow.  Simplicity didn't make tractors until the early 60's, and that is not even a Simplicity.

 

$75 is a pretty good deal, though.  I wonder how hard the missing parts are to find?

It worries me that its missing belts and pulleys. This would definitely be a parts machine. I could use parts from it, its just too far away. :(

The Wonderboy 700 was introduced in 1959.

That's true.  Thanks for the correction!  Here I wrote up an article on Simplicity with nearly all the right information and I still can't keep my facts straight later.  :wallbanging:
