Never seen one before. It looks fairly sturdy in the rear end from what you can see in the pictures.

Never seen one before Ducky, but I would pick it up. It's got a "COOL" factor about it.

Thanks for posting !!!

I have one complete Gilson Pacer and a parts one. Mine is in the middle of being restored right now. I just went to the sign shop today to have them make decals. I also dropped off what was left of the seat cover at the upholstery shop to get a new cover made. It should be done in a month or so. I really have not found much info on them but I think that they are really neat looking.

Here are a couple of pictures of my restored Gilson Pacer. It was restored by my friend Fred Taylor. It is a very heavy duty machine with lots of cast iron castings. If you would like to see more pictures of it you can see them at my fb page at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Garden-Tractor-collecting-Steve-Johnson/193343924011585
