Default 1964? Simplicity 707 Broadmoor

I needed a new project so I just picked up a "new to me" Simplicity 707 Broadmoor. I think it is a 1964 but I'm not really sure. It's powered by a 11hp Briggs and Stratton that may not be original to the tractor but it runs pretty strong. Any idea's on what year this is and if it has the original engine? I'm pretty excited about this cool looking little tractor and I cant wait to start fixing it up.

Great tractor. Got a 1965 Landlord 101 and a Big Ten for parts. New to me, but cool so far. I do have some parts I'd consider selling if looking (snowblower, striping rollers, etc...).

and welcome to the Simplicity forum

It's a bit of a looker isn't it. Lots of shape built into the hood.

Have a look at simpletractors.com, you might find some history stuff. There's a cross reference section there that might show some info for you also.

And you can maybe get a manual there, or through simplicity website. You'll need the model #, or manu #, for that. Might be on the tractor, or that cross ref section shows model #'s also. and those will work.

It looks fairly well preserved; even has the original hubcaps.

I used to have a '67 717 broadmoor, I believe a 707 is a '65-'66 model year.

great lawn mowers..they are wonderful on hills due to how the rear end moves and of course they have the great simplicty mow capabilities...they are not garden tractors..so use accodingly..11hp seems a little much..the one we have and have had for years is only a measly 8hp...you will love that mower and not much can out mow it even to this day...there is one on craigslist in addison illinois for $275 anyb ody close may wish to check it out

I took a look around the tractor today and trying to find a model number but I was unable to locate anything. I assumed the numbers would be stamped into a small tag somewhere on the tractor but no luck finding it. Any idea where the model number might be stamped on this tractor? I was able to get the information for the engine it is a 400cc 11hp Briggs and Stratton model number 252707, code number 0632 01 and type 83092811. From what I've seen online I think this is a bigger engine that was originally used in these tractors but I may be mistaken... this is my first simplicity so the brand is entirely new to me.

It's not a 64'. I have one.
The 64's had a black dash, then 65' on had the white dash.
You found a nice one....mine needs a full resto....whih will happen when I get to it.
And the broadmore's had 6 hp engines.....I'm looking for a 8hp verticle to replace mine because it threw a rod.
Those old briggs with the str/gen are not easy to find.

tractor id numbers are on a sticker behind the seat, and i had 2 of those same things both 1966. they both had 7-8 hp briggs engines so i dont belive yours is the original. but still a sweet rig anyways. nice little machines to play with and tinker on.

All in all, you've got a fine ride.
I'm a cub guy, but those early Broadmore's have a beautiful shape to them.
I restore old ferrari's, and prewar french cars, and those tractors have a look that puts them in the same catagory.....really sharp.
I'm surprised the big engine fit with the grill still on. I thought anything over a 8hp was too big to fit.

The 707-717 have different sheetmetal configuration both behind the engine and the grill than the 727-728-738 and up series broadmoor.
The bigger motors will actually go in easier on the early ones than the later ones.

Really?
I don't know. there doesn't seem to be much room in front of the spark plug on the little 6hp engine in mine.
I'll see what happens. Main thing with me is keeping the starter/gen setup.

Looks like a 64 to me,although that hitch in the front I'm guessing you have the plow blade.(I never had the plow blade). The engine is a replacement ,the original was a 6 H.P. Briggs w/optional electric start (the Electric start was well worth it though.My Engine was replaced with a 7 H.P.
Briggs but fortunately the Electric start was able to be carried over to the new engine. Great Mower.....
