It is a 1957 Springfield built machine. Looks to be in nice original condition. Springfields were built by the Quick Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Ohio. I do have a manual on it (certain of it). Can answer any mechanical question you have. And or history lol. Glad to have you here at GTTalk. hope you enjoy your tractor.
