Caught this on a local Craigslist search:

The seller states:

added... a hood from an antique Simplicity mower. I welded the brackets and mounted the METAL hood replacing the broken plastic original, painted it matching John Deere green and installed the correct hood decals.

I stared at the pic for a while before reading the description and just couldn't place what wasn't right with it, besides the area for luggage above the engine.  Then I face-palmed when I read it and finally saw it.

In the grand scheme of hack jobs we've featured on here, this is probably one of the better executed.

      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
