Brother had a co-worker give this to him as it was headed to the big melting pot in China. Brother even hauled it the two hours to me!
It's a Porter Cable

Good that you got the parts you need.
Have you got any plans for those footrests?

Too bad the steering wheel is broken.

Brian, [TD&H] the tires are mostly junk - the right one is split everywhere, I think someone aired it up too much. The left one looks OK but it could be rotten as well, I put some air in it tonight and it is holding. You never know if someone tried to put 35 LBS in one because they didn't know any better. I believe it is a Wards Riverside. If you need the left one to make a matched pair PM me.
Will, I'm going to continue to look for an axle so some day I might fix this one up too.
After Googling Porter Cable[s] I'm not sure this is one. All the PC's have a different hood. It has a serial plate behind the dash but nothing is legible except the stamped #'s

On the serial number plate can you read anything? What #s are visible?
There were different designs for the verticle front part of the hood. The horizontal lines on yours are different but could be an earlier or later model than the hits you found using google.

Type - - serial no.
89 1600 M/W-11624
I just noticed under its brush-on paint job it used to be red - guess its a Moto Mower

That doesn't look like any of the moto-mower model numbers I've seen. Mostly 60xx and 7000. I think the type would be 100.
The rounded nose on the front of the hood is late 50s/early 60s. Also expected the colour to be white/beige or light blue. The front axle should be light blue.
Is the red under the white a re-paint? I haven't seen a red moto-mower with that hood design - only white.
An example serial number tag - which I speculate is 1963.
Model # 6001
Type # 100
Serial # B10792
