Hi dlang94, yes per the SN it a 1959 model, congrats on your purchase not a bad looking Economy those B&S model 23 engines are a good stout engine. Those lift assist springs are interesting never seen that set up before but it looks like it would work good.
post your power king pictures!

1981 Power King 1614 w/ Loader SN 56129
Hello, I'm new on this forum so pix may not work. I had never heard of a Power King Tractor in my 70+ years around farming and equipment till last week when a Craig's List ad from the next door town showed a 1981 Power King 1614 with a loader. Just had to check it out. I was impressed how well constructed, well preserved with mostly original paint and decals, working well, and obviously never abused. The Seller was moving to Oklahoma and couldn't take it with him. Now it's in my driveway. I tackled our Maine snowbanks and it sure has courage. The hood decal shows sold locally by Madison Tire and Auto Sales, Madison, ME, 04956, Ph. 696-5350. It has dual 3 speed transmissions, front PTO, 3 Point Hitch, new clutch assembly, and a whole folder of Factory Manuals. I sure like the fit for my aging bones and think it will be handy around the yard especially lifting those antique Willys Jeep parts. If these pix work, maybe you can tell me if it is really what it appears to be. Maybe you have a list of surviving SN's to see if its been registered previously. Looking forward to roaming around this Forum

Bought it to use more than show, but showing isn't out of the question. It has previously appeared at the WA State Fair in Puyallup. You can see the rototiller in front of it, there is also a brush rake (spring tooth harrow), disc harrow set, mower deck, and a blade that may be adapted but wasn't made to fit this tractor. The tractor has the double 3 speed transmissions. It starts reliably after I did some work clearing the fuel lines and filter. The charging side of the starter / charger isn't working. Leading to research, leading here.
I'm a retired old soldier hoping to to some subsistence farming. I will keep my craftsman riding mower 'cause it will mow faster than the PK.
