In response to members' requests, here's the 75th Anniversary Special that Simplicity made and used in their 75th Anniversary Parade (the largest tractor parade ever, according to the Guiness Book of World Records). Since Simplicity will stop producing the Sovereign entirely this summer (2000) that will certainly make this
special edition tractor more collectible.
Sovereign Garden Tractor, 75th Anniversary Collectors Model
The "Harley-Davidson" of Garden Tractors, featuring:
18 HP Kohler Command V-Twin OHC. Special dark metallic blue and gold flames paint scheme
Chrome wheels, front bumper, side exhaust pipe,
engine covers, front and rear lights
Deluxe seat with arm rests
Matching 48" mower.
|Note that this is an early promotional picture. Ones actually sold by dealers had different tires, armrests for the seats, and chrome head cover plates (not chrome head and fins).
