Traded another Allis yesterday for this tractor. Has tiller and deck and lights. Needs a carb cleaning and I think it will run good.

Great find! I've been working on the '62 Garden Mark Squire that I picked up last week. I had to replace the rubber driveshaft couplings on it yesterday, since the steel plates separated from the rubber. I installed the fiber discs from a later model. They are simple machines to work on and fun to use.

Looks like a pretty straight tractor. Good find! I had the option to buy two simplicity 700 wonder boys that I shoulda bought. One came with a deck and hitch and the other was just the tractor. But I'm bassically outta room. One day ill get one when I get more room

It does run but has been converted to battery ignition and I want to change it back to magneto when I restore it.

Those little tractors always looked so attractive to me. 

 

You ought to restore that guy. You don't see too many with sparkly paint.

That '59 Wonderboy is in great shape! We're getting somewhere around 10" of snow tomorrow and I'm going to try out a three belt snow thrower on the Squire. Everything is greased and oiled. I adjusted the chain and belts and it seems to work fine, so I hope it holds together.
