Looks like another Rugg built rider. They are not a common piece, but values are not much. So purchase wisely.

 

Edit: For $50 I dont think you can go wrong.

I'm looking at the seat and wondering if the whole thing is in original condition.  I don't know what it is, but I like it.  Very cool looking mower.

There was one of those on ebay a while back, these little lawnmowers need saving too, when they are gone they are gone, bet it would look great next to a mustang.

Look like you have a few busy weekends on that one, it will look great when sorted,  good save :)

I have a soft spot for old ride-on mowers, they deserve their place next to the GTs, even the ugly ones have a certain appeal to them..most of them though just look cute, deserving of garage space i reckon.
