I like these older Sears tractors. Solid construction. 67' Suburban 10, 10 HP Tec cast iron with bearings 3spd trans with HI-LO. Built by Roper which is now AYP. Looks to be all there so if you can get it cheap go for it. Even has wheel weights on it.

Looks old enough too be worth bringing home, esp if it's for cheap. I picked up a '71 MTD last spring that I plan on getting going. It's a pretty cool outfit and show even MTD once upon a time made real garden tractors.

It looks like a 67 or 68 Suburban 10. I have a 68 Suburban 12 I would love to sell right now. I am sick of working on it. Compared to AC Simplicity, the Sears are a nightmare to work on, especially with the tecumseh's.

I have several older Sears and they are good tractors. The mowers tend to gouge ground alot more than Simplicity decks. If you get it and it doesn't have fire new ignition parts might be unavailable. Tecumseh had a couple different solid state setups. If that is the case you can go to the sears.pammar.net site goatfarmer mentioned and download a description of how to replace the original ignition with newer automotive parts.

Quantico, acutally it is orange, "Pumkin Orange" specifially, just a little faded. I just noticed its a 67, it looks like it has points and condenser. But I would still be running away from that tractor as fast as I could!

      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!😁
