Comes with Power Products 2 stroke engine and Tecumseh engine currently installed. Very rare tractor made in 1954. Will consider trading for a 12-14 aluminum fishing boat with trailer and running motor.

That looks like it has a full size PTO shaft coming out the rear! Neat little machine for sure.

I believe what you are seeing is the air filter cover.

Pretty sure you would not only be the first on the block to own one but also the only one.

I'm not sure about that one. You guys sure it's not a playtoy for kids???
No mower or even any idea where one would go.

It's not a toy, it was marketed by Sears in 1954. It was made by the Hiller Aircraft Company in Redwood City, CA.
Definitely a rare bird right there

Emailing back and forth with the owner. He has a copy of the manual and parts list.
