Congrats on the 1053!
Everything looks to be in decent shape with only minor surface rust.
Shouldnt take much to get the old Wisconsin up and running

Oh By the way.... The 1053's were only built in 1970 so if you would like me to change the title of your thread I'd be glad to do so.

The green one in the picture is a 38'' Deck.
It can be adapted to the 1053 if you have the proper mounting brackets
