1951? Simplicity L-1 Walk Behind Tractor

Postby Urbish » Tue Jun 11, 2019 7:31 am

I'm continuing to clean out my late father's stuff and brought this Simplicity L-1 Walk Behind Tractor home. It was my grandfather's since new. He bought it shortly after he returned from WWII and used it to plow snow among other things. It fired right up on the first pull and runs really good!
