I nominate my original condition 1964 Simplicity Landlord and the attached Simplicity walk behind plow thats been adapted to sleeve hitch configuration. Tractor was swapped for from a fellow member here on the site and has been in semi regular use either mowing or serving as a butt buggie at shows. Hope to try her in the field this fall if I still have her at that time. Plow goes off to the sand blaster later this month so I can repaint before the fall plowing events. The Landlord still has her original engine that to my knowledge has never been overhauled, correct original muffler and only the front rims have been repainted so far( I really need to do the rear rims!) I have added headlights since this picture was taken. I got the tractor from Talentedmrgreen, swapping him a Sunstar I had purchased at the dealership where I work. He met me in Ft Wayne, IN to make the swap. The tractor was shown at the 100th Gathering of the Orange in LaPorte, IN and I took 1st in one of the garden tractor games.
I have Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. Old garden tractors/mowers is one of my special interests. I have turned this into a profession. But with it comes horrible social skills, trouble making and keeping friends and I easily get bored with tractors and sell them off or swap them off. So I am hoping to get my Landlord featured, which would really rekindle my interest in keeping it and finishing off what I have in my mind that I want to do. If I kept the tractor, a decent pair of used Ag tires need to be found so I can plow, and I need the proper headlight mounting bar for my lights.
I will post another newer picture tomorrow after I get home from work, she is stored at our dealership along with the plow. I am preparing to go to the Greenville,OH tractor show, may take the Landlord as it looks much nicer than my Case 220 that is under restoration right now. Mike
