Recommended Posts

Looking for any photos and stories of Simplicity Wonderboy machines, for use in an article featuring these models in Lawn and Garden Tractor magazine.  

To include, rear engine riders of any type, front engine Wonderboy 700, Wonderboy memorabilia, NOS finds, junkyard saves, etc.  Especially...Allis, Homelite and Wards variants!

As far as I know, these 2 went to the crusher.  They were at an auction in 2014.  At the time, I wasn't able to buy them.  Scrap guy bought them for a few bucks from what I heard.

My brother bought this in 2013 - it had a grader blade with it that he wanted and quickly resold the tractor.  Oh, I swiped the headlight off it.....
