Someone was looking for one of these a couple of months ago. It is only 20 miles from me. I think he was asking alot more a month ago. I already have one. Good Luck, Rick

The funny thing about any Simplicity tractor is that they just dont command any money. They are anchors along with the Allis tractors. Quite honestly I don't know why. I've had both makes, and loved every one I owned. Unlike Deeres, Cubs and Wheel Horses, the people that seem to collect Simplicity and Allis tractors are never willing to open their wallets. The only thing I was ever able to sell at good market value were the original Guide headlights. Outside of those, forget about it. If you are passionately in love with your Simplicity, then go ahead and restore it. If you think you might ever want to re-sell it, break even, or not pass it on to your grandchildren, then save your money or buy something else.

That is very true. I really like the old  ACs because it was a Big Ten that got my 12 year old interested in GTs (he is now 20). That started my collecting. I'm in NE CT and these tractors are plentiful and reasonably priced with lots of attachments available. I bought one on Monday and plan to turn it over to a friend with an MS like condition because he needs something easy to use. I'll just stay glad that the AC/Simplicity tractors are in general under valued.

 

The Simplicity Club should be at the June 8 show at the Woodstock Fair Grounds.  Good Luck, Rick

My tractor fetish began with a '57 Wonderboy joystick tractor and then a '65 Landlord - both of which I still have today. They are great machines and great looking too. I think a nice clean '65 Landlord is way nicer looking than most Deeres or Cubs.
