Introduction: Antique Mower Restoration

I found this mower in my neighbors yard, and he had no use for it so I bought it and decided to  restore it. Its a Montgomery Wards Garden Mark, made sometime around the 1950's. It was restored as a summer project by me and my grandfather. Please vote for me in the 2nd Annual Krylon Contest. Thanks!

Had one in the 80's & 90's. Blue with a white handle. Said Kmart on it

i used to cut my neighbors lawn with one back in the late sixties! it was the coolest thing. I now have it and am in the process of restoring it. Glad you know the brand name, I never did. Mine was all white with orange wheels.

Very cool, I bought almost the exact same mower at an auction this summer.

I might do the same. My engine runs but cant power the mower and move at the same time

That's awesome. The motor sounds like it's ready for the dragstrip.

Thanks, I actually advanced the spark a little by setting the points gap closer. It seemed to give it a little more kick at idle. :)

nice little tractor i picked one up 2 days ago runs good i was wondering if you can tell me how you found out what colors it was when new mine looks like all gold like your motor with with white seat and handls im planing on restoring it real soon any info would be helpful thank you

My paint was so far gone, that I just picked what colors i thought would look good. Not sure what color the body is supposed to be, it was either white or silver, but I know the motor was gold. The paint i used was Dupli-Color automotive paint in an aerosol can. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Thanks!
