I see a Simplicity (101?) in there too, the one in last pic with a hole for front pto in the lower grill. Always liked that model.

I've never had a chance to see a lawn/garden tractor junk yard of that size .I think I'd have a hard time leaving without something.I know I could never be a junk yard owner.Simply because I'd be wanting to get everything back up and working and restored. Larry

It would almost be impossible to leave without buying something, even if you didn't need it right away.

Sam, I think it is an old SIMPLICITY, but not for sure. Will be up that way I will find out.
I want to see what the other one is too.

I think George is right about it being another Simplicity. You can see the frame angles upward at the midpoint, just like all the Simplicity did of that era.
