Firestone Fairlawn...a re-badged MTD 990.

That was just one of MANY names that the 990 was sold under.

Way back in the day! Every Hardware Chain, Tire Store and Whoever could get a machine built with their label on it.
In this area Gambles, Western Auto, Firestone , Goodyear,Armstrong & Coast to Coast, all had virtually the same machine in their own colors and brand.

MTD, Murray & Dynamark all built their fortunes doing that.

I could not find the store code for the ID. I own a 990 that was badged for White's Hardware Stores of Central TX. Not White Tractor Co.
