Funny thing is I grew up in a family owned Allis Chalmers AG dealership and I don't even own one . We didn't sell lawn and garden because the local hardware sold Simplicity . I do believe though these are both 64's . Neither run but really haven't tried . Couldn't pass them up because they were cheap .

Nice old tractors. I'd like to have one like the one with the black triangular grill badge.

Mary Gearhart, in Columbus OH makes the best Allis Chalmers garden tractor seats I've seen, and very reasonable. :banana-blonde:

I think I'm keeping the Broadmoor :) and going to let the Landlord find a new home :mellow: .IMG_0993.JPG.b0c6e19d628d73825264fa1c82500bcc.JPG

If it has been repainted, it was long ago and done very well . Do you know of anyone who reupholsters a simplicity seat or sells repops ? These seats seem to rare as hens teeth :wacko: . I love mine in their original clothes but I love a great seat ! Yours sure will look great when you get your seat on :handgestures-thumbupright: !

Farm King and other farm supply stores sell a black upholstered pan seat that looks real nice.

I used New Holland yellow since it's darn near impossible to find the right color for a 49 year old garden tractor. :roll:
