Yep, early Suburban. Had one years ago, but the early version, mine was a 59 or 60 model with the oval cast iron grill. Man how I wish I had kept it! Great looking ride George!

well you have a 1963, 725, or at least most of one. Orginally came with a briggs 19, electric start. First suburban to have a foot brake pedal. That engine in it belongs in a late 60's-early 70's suburban. I also see someone foobared the reverser, and the steering wheel. You have enough good stuff there to bring it back to orginal. I've never seen weights like those on a sub before, orginal ones for the DB models didnt have any notch for a valve stem and the center hole was a little small to get over the hub and mount on the inside. Looks like you need a 3pt and a plow.

Allen's tractor is a 64, that the first yr the dash tower was used. Its probally a 633 or 634.

I believe it was the "bridge" tractor from the David Bradley name plate to the Sears Suburban name when Sears dropped the Bradley name and began calling them Sears Suburban in the early to mid sixties. 63 as mentioned earlier. Very desirable tractor, congrats.

I like the look of it from the front. Could you post a couple more front view pics.
I'd say, that's a Tecumseh in there. Is that a horn in there, under the lights?

George didn't have a chance last night to get pics Will. I just went and took a few more of the front. Yes there is a horn on the tractor. Sounds kinda funny.

Thanks, Grand! Not a bad looking tractor. I've often though about putting one of the small car horns on one, kinda like the Roadrunner's 'meep-meep'.

I had found this image on another site:

Looks like it doesn't have a dash tower and has the battery mounted the same as what this one does. They are saying it is a '62 which makes it even more puzzling.


I stand corrected! Boy I wish I could say that was the first time LOL. It's a very nice piece of Sears history George. Thanks for saving it!

I had it running, driving and mowing today. The throttle cable broke on it and I redid that. Then I tried getting it to drive and I kind of figured out what they did with the reverse and if you put it in reverse with the handle they added and then made sure it was all the way up it would then drive if you put it in forward. The variable speed on it works great. I mowed about 4 200' paths and it did a good job mowing.

I am going to list it for sale in the classifieds as I already have too many things going on with my Bush Hogs.
