Never seen one of those.

These Allis built Homelites were built in the South Carolina plant that close in 1974 and this particular tractor is unlike ANYTHING Allis or Simplicity built there are similarities , but the whole tractor is a odd ball. I believe the T-16 in this configuration was built in 1973, because in 1974 Simplicity was making them  on a standard 3400/7000 series frame and engine, early Simplicity built Homelites had Vickers Hydros, later ones had Eaton that was the only difference. But this Allis built Homelite is different that the 400 series and the 3oo series in appearance/sheet metal and design The front end is more like older Simplicity, but it utilizes a front electric PTO like the Allis 416, the Homelite has the same fender pan as a Simplicity 3300/3400, but the front hood is inverted Simplicity hood and the dash resembles the 1960s sloped design. The attachments for the front hook up different than any tractor built by either company. That said I believe these rolled off the assembly line with 400 series in the latter half of 1972 and I seriously doubt they made a 1000 Allis built T-16s, since reliable sources put the number of 416s made at less than 2000, and these were only marketed to indepentdant hardware stores

Lets see your nicest most original tractors (original tires, original paint that looks good, stuff like that).  Personally those are my favorite. Here are a few of mine.

wanna tell us what they are, at least the last two, thanks

Sorry about that. The walk behind is a monkey wards with the original tires. ( I love the button tread). And the tractor is a early moto mower 6000 series I believe.

kens 149.jpg   First attempt at loading a picture. Hope it works. Here's my '74 149, all original except one front tire and the battery. Run regularly.  This is in the best condition of my originals. Most are pretty rough.

Here are a few nice originals in the shop.  The Homie and Squire need baths, but should wash up nicely, and each came with nice tight original decks.  I'm impressed with the Squire's seat and that it still wears all 4 OEM Riverside tires.

The Serf I was able to find a nice, original seat for, and the hubcaps and lift kit came NOS.  The Wonderboy has lived an easy life...almost thinking the new caps lack the petina the rest of the tractor bears, however.  The reel was from a Lawn Trac, painted to go with it's Simplicity cousin...you can see some of the Wards bronze peeking through.

This is one of the latest models in the fleet, but one of the nicest finishes I've come across. (and probably my favorite)  The diesel and battery can really eat up the RH side of these machines if not cared for.  This one sat for a long time, at some point, with a bad battery, but is otherwise a peach.

Weeeellll this might be a bit big but it was my only GT at one time.  I bought it new in 1985, is all original except for the seat, front tires, and the busted flasher light on the back,,

It has 1056 hrs on it, this meter reads hours at rated engine rpms, not like the new ones that read off the key.
