Garden Mark Squire

Recommended Posts

I have recently acquired a Garden Mark Squire tractor that looks exactly like a 1963 Simplicity 725. The drive train, Briggs engine, hood, seat and everything matches, even the color. Is this possible. Did they make some extras for other companies? Where would I find the serial number? The engine is loose but not running. Seems to be in good shape. Robby K

Simplicity did make tractors for Montgomery Wards. My Montgomery Wards Squire 9 was painted gold not orange. I restored mine to look like the Early Allis Chalmers B 10 and was Also made in 1963. I kind of preferred the yellow over the gold. I suppose the real reason for repainting it yellow is that it reminded me of the A/C B 110 that served me well for 28 years. Your tractor is painted Simplicity orange and has Montgomery Wards decals? Never heard of that before I thought they were all painted Gold.

My 61 Wards was painted the reddish orange color. Later models went to gold. Had mine for 17 years and would not part with it. Bought it as a box of parts. Currently it has a 14 Hp Kohler and is set up for tractor pulling. We have decided to retire from pulling, so I will be setting it back up as a work tractor during the winter. Rod H.

I have a Montgomery Wards Squire 9 I recently bought. Someone painted it green but the serial number plate (a glued on version) was intact. It is located directly behind the seat on the rear fender housing. Yours probably was sanded off if it was repainted. Mine was originally the gold color. You might look in this area to see if it might have been left in tact and painted over. Otherwise, I don't beleive you can tell exactly what is is. You might be able to know the year possibly by the engine number is it is the original Briggs & Stratton engine. I know mine was the gold by scratching the paint down to bare metal in one area to count the paint jobs and find the original color.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
