Just picked up this gem the other day.  It is a brand new, never started 1965 or 1966 Montgomery Ward Push Mower.  It came with the orginal manual for the mower and the motor.  The nuts and bolts for the handle is still in the orginal plastic bag unopened.  Also came with orginal quart of oil that has never been opened.

Sweet score. Not to often does one find a new push mower from the 1960s.

That's a cool find.  Like the spring-loaded starter.

 

Curious if there's a story why it was never used.

I was wondering what the story was behind it too.  The guy I bought it from said he bought it at a swap meet about 6 years ago because he used one when he was a kid and it brought back memories.  I don't know if it was sitting in the warehouse somewhere and an employee took it home and never used it or what.  I am glad I got it matches the 6 riders that i have from this same era.  I am going to mount it to a trailer and pull it behind on of my garden tractors at shows and parades.

That is a nice mower regardless of age! Details like the little hub caps and sturdy looking wheels tell me it was not a cheap mower.

Thanks for the pictures.  I remember mowing with one of those.  Back then we got a LOT OF STUFF from Wards.  Never was that impressed with the wind up/recoil apparatus.   Rick

That's a cool piece.  I think I would hang it on the wall in the living room.    :thumbs:

Very neat and very unusual.  I love that old impulse starter.  You don't often see NOS push mowers.  Keep that one nice!
