Mitchell 900 – 1977-1986 = 320,075 Units
Mitchell 901 – 1978-1981 = 21,339 Units

 

In 1977 Mitchell started a new line of reels called the "900" series. These included the 900, 906 and 908 all of which were painted a new dark gray with skirted spools. The ones you see here are the three known versions starting out with the most rare Garcia Mitchell 900 only produced for a very short time in 1977 prior to Garcia's closing in 1978. See the Garcia Mitchell 900 with Serial Number (SN G165207) from the collection of Tracey Sclater.

 

The next two versions were distributed by Browning starting in 1978 (SN H116104) are very similar except for a couple differences including a better spool drag assembly. The last version shown with SN J043??? (last digits are unreadable) from 1979 is the most common. The 900 series was a hybrid of the classic Mitchell 300.

 

I've also posted pictures of the first two version schematics  Always remember schematics are only an artist's diagrammatic rendering and will hardly ever will be exact in  "appearance" to the actual reel. For more information see our Vintage Advertisements Gallery.
