Trying to pin down the year of A Wonderboy 700 I saw today for sale, but I'm a little rusty on the years and refinemnts made and when. This one has a short brake pedal.. No cut out to get to the points... "Wonderboy" 700 chrome.. No belt guard under the fender pan on the right side.. No clevis type pin points on the lower rear hitch point, uses a single long rod/pin rather than two short pins... Short steering column.. Bushing type front wheels instead of bearings... Decent straight tractor other than a shot gear box, 2 coats of brushed on bright red paint:YXX( and rear car tires. they even brush painted the nice straight aluminum original grill white:||yell anyhoo... whats the take on the year. Looks to me a strong candidate for 59...

Sam, Don't know if it will help, but the engine numbers on mine make it a 61. I have: Short brake pedal Short steering column No points cut out Wonderboy 700 Chrome no belt guard under the fender pan bushing type front wheels Not sure on the rear hitch, just thought it was missing the short outer plates ?? Also has a short straight shifter Gas tank is slightly larger and more square than my 725 s/g tension bracket is long and arched instead of short and straight Mid pto engages at the rear of the linkage instead of the front Probly made things worse instead of better huh :O

My 61 Wards had the same features, except that the front wheels look like they have bushings but instead they have long roller bearings that go all the way across. These rollers are about 1/4 inch diameter and go from one side to the other. Just one single set of bearings in each wheel. These are the original wheels.
