He left out the "Custom Exhaust" and the fact that the plow will require some "minor adaptation" in his description.

clutch pedal work backwards

The vari drive is all the way forward, which means the clutch pedal is all the way back towards the driver.

There isn't much about this ad that doesn't scream BS and I think he should do a little more research before stating "facts" like he did.
Looks to me like he pulled the sticker off something old and stuck it on this one.

All negatives aside, if someone were to take it and make a new hood & grill, they could make it look like an old Ferguson with an all gray paint job.

Early lawn tractors would not be 12 horse and variable drive. That combination started around 1972. Prior to that, if it was 12 hp, it was a hydro, and if it was varible drive, it was a 10.
PS: It looks more like the attachment clutch simply has the wrong size belt on it, not that it has been made to work in reverse.

Those fenders definitely look like the Bolens 600 and 800 fenders dad has on his tractors.

Also the right hand running board looks like the older style, an it has the plate where the S/G would be.

My '74 MF12 has a different RH running board.

Those fenders look like the old Speedex fenders. We repurposed a pair not too long ago that were very similar.
