Wow that sucks. From the angle of the seat pan, it looks like the pivot brackets from the rear end probably broke.

...my Dad could use some of the parts from it for his Squire.


There was a Squire version of a small frame?? If not, doubt much would interchange.

My Dad bought the Squire from a guy at work back in the late 60's. The guy my dad bought it from wanted a bigger one since his neighbor bought a bigger one...you know how that goes with some people. The Squire was near new and my Dad bought it for 50.00. My son still mows with it and hauls his little cousins around in the wagon. God only knows how many hours are on that tractor.
Today, I'm cutting up some dead falls and trees that fell during the snowstorm last week. I'm using the '62 Squire that I just picked up and did some work to. The small blue cart came with an Allis B1 I bought last winter, and so far everything is holding up.

Didn't realize they made a small frame Squire. Learn something new every day and there's today's lesson.

I've been learning about the Simplicity family of tractors myself over the last year or so. They are my favorite so far.

The look is so appealing, so strong, the early and mid 60's Simplicitys will always be my favorite.

 

Wagon looks great ! what a team you got there !!

I have a 738 I picked up for next to nothing that I don't have plans for. Trade you a handshake for it.

Thanks Appalachain, I appreciate it. I'll see if my friend is willing to take the trip out there.
