Hi All I am new to this sight, I have not long gotten this old SIMAR 35C, it was free, it needs work as engine is seized but it has oil in the cylinder, and it is complete, it does have a spear gearbox and wheels, I will try and upload pictures. Any info on these Simars will be very helpful.

Pictures up soon I hope
Thanks

Ev, welcome to the forum.
I can supply info about SIMAR 35C, see my pm for details. If you let me know the serial number of the machine from the makers plate on the front cover, should be 35????, I can give you date of manufacture from factory records. If you look at the links page of our website you will find a link to my website where you will see a photo of my 35C and other machines.

Hi, Do you have pictures of your Simar? There bigger then the 35C Right? I was going to buy 2 Simar 56As, but I did not end up getting them, they had spear parts with them. They sold for $63.00 NZ, Damn cheap, and one ran the other didin't.

s/n 350415 dates from July 1951.
Photo of my 56 fitted with soil shredder attachment, as you say they are bigger than 35. I still use the 56 on the garden at home, see following link for video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T44mijAjFW0 There are also videos of some of other machines.

photo of my 35 just after restoration some years ago.

Hi, thanks very much for the Info, that is just what I needed, Makes you wonder if all six Simars are still around! And what is the paint you use for these Simars? And can you still buy transfers?
Cheers
