A local mower shop  took this in trade, then contacted me about this unit.

A 1959 Simplicity 725   It is a little rough but is mostly all there

Engine is a Briggs  model 23A         The engine turns free by hand.

                               type 703010               

                               serial 589525

The mower deck is solid but the spindles are frozen.

They are asking $100

If interested   PM  me for their contact info.     Thanks   Rick

Man, what a drive-line in that!  Is that a hydro or just a complicated gear box? Looks like a little shifter threre, not much throw for a manual.  Not familiar with this old of Simple tractor. Was a big one I bet for that year.

it's a 1962 or 63 I think. the line started with the 700 wonderboy than the 700. later models were made under allis and garden mark. I am not full expert. I am redoing a 700. doesn't look to horrible i see a wrong seat.

that would of originally had a briggs 19 or 19d in it which is 7.25 hp but someone seems to have put in a 23a which is 9hp. good price for a parts unit

The owner was going by the briggs year and what he could remember.

 

Tractor data says 1961-1964 and simpletractors  shows one "new in 62"

 

Replacing the briggs with an earlier unit would explain the 1958 year for the engine

 

Thanks for the corrections.   Rick

Thanks.  I read through that (even though he doesn't puncuate).

Obviously the engine has been changed.

I just recently replaced the Model 19 with a model 23 in my 1960 700. The 700,725,B1 and early Garden mark Sqiure were Simplicity's first or "original style "riding tractor". The B1 and Squire are based on the 725. The 700 was built from 59-60 (the 59 model had Wonderboy" on the badge) The 725 and the B1 and Squire from 61-63,although,officially Simplicity didn't keep or go by model years. The differences between the 700 Wonderboy and 700 are practically non existent. They simply dropped the Wonderboy from the badge after 59 to avoid confusion with the smaller Wonderboy mowers. The 725 is the same tractor with a few "improvements". Taller steering column,bent shift,revised parking brake. The 700 models used the Model 19 engine 7HP (coil behind the flywheel),the 725,B1,and first Squires used the model 19D 7.25hp engine (coil above the flywheel. The tractor in this thread is well worth the money and looks to be a fairly easy to fix back up into good worker candidate. Mine way worse off when I drug it home. Here is my 700 with the model 23 I just finished up putting in it about a month ago.

Hello I've been looking for a 725 wonderboy simplicity for a very long time to do a full out restoration on. I live far away in Georgia, but my girlfriend lives sort of close to where you do and next time I visit her I could stop by to pick it up. I'm very interested in it.
