Very nice survivor.What year would that be?


I think she's a '69....might needs Greg's help on that one. I dont think they were offered before that and didnt last long before going orange. Its a South Carolina machine, I believe.

Congrats on finding a very nice Super Josh!

 

I believe that would have been called the 1970 model year. Built starting in late '69 and continuing in '70.

Thanks Greg!  I did spend a minute out in the shop last nite...dropped an LT battery in it and noticed the Briggs has a '69 build date and the 'Built to Allis Chalmers Specs' decals on the tin.  Could it be the original?  I'll have to look at the other Briggs that came with it.  I'll grab serial #'s etc off it when I'm done brooming snow :thumbs:

Josh, Wow what a GREAT collection you have there. And I really like the way you have your shop set up, very nice. What year is the little Squire you tucked away under the shelf? Post some pictures when you can.

What size are the tires front and back? My uncle has a B-208 and it has the chrome bumper, armrests, hubcaps. Not sure if his is a Super that lost the decal.

Thanks!  I struggle to fit it all in.  I have sold off a lot...mostly attachments I wasn't using. 

 

The tiny squire is a '63/'64 Squire 6.  It is a rebranded Simplicity Broadmoor.  I believe it to be nearly the rarest machine I have, but certainly not the most popular :smilewink:  I have seen pictures of two others, with good reason to believe both pictures were of the same machine in Ohio, taken 10 years apart.  I know that mine is not that same machine, based on the front tires (non-pneumatic) and some other damage/stains.  I would think that being a lawn tractor offered by Wards, there would be a boat load of these out there, but just don't see them.

I dug up this info:

 

208
Front 13 x 5.00 x 6"
Rear 18 x 8.50 x 8"

208 Super
Front 5.30/4.60 x 6"
Rear 18 x 9.50 x 8"
 

The Super was just that...a B-208 with larger tires, armrests and hubcaps.  I need to put together a couple sets of hubcaps.  I only have one, but 3 machines that they would fit.  My B-207 is identical to the B-208, except for the engine.  I've heard tell of a B-207 Super, but have never seen one in pictures or brochures, and the B-207's I have seen, have all the same 'super' add-on's, but no 'super' decal designation.

How hard are the supers to find I found one for 125 and was wondering if it was a good deal.

Im not real sure...I dont see quite as many as the other models, and really dont see many of the early small B's at all. $125 is fair if its in decent shape and runs. If its really nice, its a great price.
