I'd say that is a Gard'n Mast'r garden tractor. They were built by The Garden-All Tractor Company of Liberty, Indiana.A lot of them used Dodge truck components.Notice the grill and front axle.

The garden master looks similar, but not the same. The rear end is elevated on the one I posted and it hsd fenders. I still have no idea?

Too bad the pics aren't better, it's hard to make out much detail even after enlarging them. It appears to have a 4 cyl engine under the hood, but I don't see a radiator. Looking at the front end pic, the front axle looks to be considerably narrower than the rear end. I wonder if this isn't homemade, or at least multiple machines pieced together :confuse:

If nothing else, it's interesting. It looks like it would make a good project for someone.

The ones I have pictured are from the '50s,your pictures are of a '30s tractor correct ?Maybe there was some design changes in those 20 years that accounts for those differences.

Although I haven't found any information on that exact tractor, I'm betting it's some model of a garden master. Will keep looking.

Garden Master wasn't around in the 30's. The seller doesn't know what he has. I'd say its a Garden master that's been highly modified.

Yea, when I saw 1930's, I figure the seller was guessing, and getting it wrong.

Looking at the linkages underneath, the front end, etc... I'd agree with the G-M diagnosis. The air cleaner is on the wrong side & the exhaust is different, but I'm sure there were more than 1 model. Who bought them out, anyways... anyone know?
