I think JC Penny's had mowers for sale in the late 70's and early 80's. Probably quit that about the same time they quit selling ammo and guns. ddh

Last time these were talked about I got the impression it was 1975 only, course, more info could shed new lite of them as there're pretty 'new' here. Sooo learn all you can and get some pics. Model 494 is what I believe was posted

Like MPH says, the only ones I've heard of (that I recall) were 1975 models, thougn they may have sold them in more than one year... Here's a bit more discussion, from the archives: http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=7282 http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=6257 http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=3392

JC Penny sold lawn tractors at least until the early to mid 1980's. They were made by Murray. Don't know if they ran Murray as a light duty tractor concurrently with the Simplicity built tractors, or if they just switched to Murray in later years. Pat

I bought a new 13HP JC Penney lawn tractor in Utah about 1988-1990 timeframe. Can't remember exactly... CRS syndrome! It was made by NOMA, who was later acquired by Murray, I think.

As far as I know Simplicity only built tractors for J.C. Penney in '75. But I would'nt want to stake my life on that information!! Bob R.
