Recommended Posts

It took me like 3.5 weeks to become a member. Some reason you have to have a msn email:( , as you may know in my file I'm a owner collector I first got a simplicity in 1986 from my grandma and she got it from my uncle in '75 witch he used it for snowblowing, mowing for money. MY grandma used it for two years but she had too small of a yard. She put in a hip roof barn with a dirt floor. Sadly she left it dead un maintained. Luckily my dad got it. It got a little rusty had flat tires, leather on the seat was almost gone, didn't run. My dad took it to a dealer and they put in new points, battery belts, maintenance it with oil and grease ect. He gave it back to her in 1985. I offered $500 when some guy was at the door and asked for it for $250. I got it put oil it and fresh gas in it and drove out of a barn. I restored it still love it start up and running rrrrrrrroar even in freezing weather its a 1969 simplicity landlord 2210. I started becoming a celebrity I work out of my garage some of my neighbors gave me money to fix theirs or in two cases restore them originally and one slightly modified with agriculture tires, bore kit. There's a lot of mid 60s to early 70s around my farm town. Now I own 3 working landlord 2210's 3 working 2110s 1 sovereign working. One little problem it has a 10 horse landlord motor in it instead of a 12 horse motor.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
