Worst Looking tractor ever

Recommended Posts

Chris727
I thought I would start this topic, as MPH pointed out the horrible looking tractor with the rusted tiller in my "latest finds" post. I thought It would be interesting if others could post their "worst looking tractor" This is a 1960 Simplicity 700 with tiller, I found it at a junkyard and bought it for $50 (boy did they see me coming!) It must have been underwater for a period of time as the frame was caked solid with riverbottom soil, even inside the blower cover, the engine was locked up. I ended up having to chisel the piston out. It had no oil in it because there must have been water inside it which froze and cracked the oil pan so it all leaked out. The BGB and trans are free but the tiller is locked solid. The front tires are also rotted off and the starger generator is locked up. I only bought it because I really needed a grill for my good 700 and a hood emblem. So here is my candidate for worst tractor:

I can't compete with Chris and Elon's "Worst Looking Tractor", but this is the "Worst Looking, Good Running Tractor" that I have ever bought. It is a HB-212 that someone hacked the hood and squirted some orange paint on.

The HB-212 will also look better someday. I have already changed the hood, yellow paint will follow. Another winter project in the lineup. Storm, That was certainly a nasty looking 7016. It sure looks great now.

Thanks guys. I spent the summer of 05' working on it. It was a birthday present to myself.Got it in April and had it done in late summer. I had to just make do on decals.Found a set on ebay for an old 101 or something like that I think. The lettering was all I got,painted the strips on it. It was a blast. Want to do a foot dragger next. I'm looking for a B-10 or B112,something like that.

I was going to submit this as "Worst Looking" the first time it was on eBay, but just now got around to it, as it's been re-listed. I would put it in the top 5, anyway.


or, right now it is on eBay at - [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=140123280508&rd=1&rd=1[/url] B.R.

I didn't know that Wards made a Broadmoor size tractor. Are you sure it's a Wards? It looks like an extremely faded Broadmoor just like one I have.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
