Just learned that Western Auto was selling Springfield products under their name throughout the 1950s and 1960s. I would like to point out that I had no clue until now and wonder how the heck I missed that, and where are these machines?
Meanwhile, anyone that finds any Western Auto products from the 1950s or 1960s please find me because it may be my key to filling in the collection of Springfield products that I still want.

Don't think that's one of them, looks like they had at least two brands relabeled, but Springfields were in there.

That looks alot like one of the load that Brian brought up from LA for me. I think that Western Auto had their own line of firearms too. I think that they were "Western Field" branded. Are there anymore Western Auto Stores around? There aren't any in our area anymore. Good Luck, Rick

This one is a 1957 model, not  a 1967 as advertised.

My long shot.

Google image search, these stood out to me. the red one looks to be just a Springfield.

 

EDIT:

Yellow tractor is a Gilson built Wizard

My Dad is 81 & he has his Dad's Ward Western Field 22 rifle. This stuff gets interesting thinking about who made what back then.

Pictures?

 

After thinking about my post, I realize this was Springfield tractors, my walk behind was made by Bolens I think sold by Western Auto.

I don't have pics, but it's like the walk behinds that Brian brought back on his trip.
