JC Penny garden tractor

I guy gave me a JC penny garden tractor a while back, just haven't picked it up. It looks pretty good for setting outside for many years the engine isn't stuck but the drive shaft is disconnected from the flywheel. It has some wheel weights that are smaller than the normal simplicity type. When I get it home I'll take some pictures. It has headlight pods on the side of the hood and the seat is junk.

 It is hard to find a Penneys, and flat out rare to be given one!

That's because last time you had one, Josh, you didn't call me and say "Hey Brett, you want a free JC Penney tractor?"  Then it wouldn't be so rare.............

Well, I still have a JCP, so, it's not out of the question.  Unlikely, but not out of the question.

You can put it on a pallet and ship it to me! sm06

They are my favorite Simplicity OEM wheel weights.  Mounted as they are on your tractor, they are perfect for providing an excellent mounting surface to stack other home made weights made from steel plate.   Although "officially" they are shown mounted with the other side facing out.

They are in this catalog:

Those aren't odd rear wheel weights.  They are actually kind off hard to find.  They are part #990708.  They are the inner wheel weight that can be used with the much more common #990046 outer wheel weight.  In my area they sell for $150-$200.

Had to edit mine as @PhanDad types faster than I do.

I would love to get a set of those given to me mounted on the JCP 494.

 

I remember looking at that tractor walking thru Penneys back in the day...........when they also still sold tools.

Must be close to 1972 or 1973.  Pretty sure the JCP is the same as a simplicity 7013S.

Edit:

Went back and checked, the 7013 was listed in the "new in 1975" brochure listed in the research section.

The JCPs I have seen, all have a May 28, 1974 Briggs in them.  I havent seen a JCP catalog with this tractor in it yet, to understand when JCPenney actually marketed the machines. 

 

Ed, I would love to know what your tractor and engine serial numbers are.  I have been collecting that info on all of these tractors I have come across.

Josh, I have checked Fed Ex, UPS, Fastenal, Schnieder, XPO, JB Hunt, YRC, Swift, RTL, and any others I can think of.  No one has any bill of lading for a JC Penney tractor to my address.  I assume it's a paper work glitch.  Can you follow up please and give me the skinny on when the drop ship date is?  Thanks in advance!

Your best friend, Brett

Brett, it was delivered and signed for over a week ago!  Better ask the wife...

I knew she couldn't be trusted when it came to my 14th tractor!  She's pretty slick when it comes to this stuff.  Darn!!!!

      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
