It's a widdle bitty baby tractor. Now feed it a bottle and put it to bed so it can grow up to be big and strong.

Man Pat, I have NO idea. The tinwork on the front may be specific to W. Auto's version, but those "foot rest/fender" look to be a real clue.

As far as the research iv looked up, they were made by AYP & MTD. I've seen claims to both. Quick MFG would be new to me as far as these. I believe they remained solo to the Springfields before their demise in the big lawsuit with only a few ventures off with other experiments. Either way...I'd deff buy that wizard...so many possibilities!!

Wow! I took my 990 frame to a paint stripper outfit yesterday and was talking about powder coating wheels and he showed me some stuff they had done there. I Swear that little hood and grill he had there was just like this one!! Looked like GT part, but seemed too small. Wonder if it was same? Myself thinks these litlle rider wanna be's are just junk. Cheapest parts and don't last long. Give it to kids to play with and start them on collector juourney!
