bit more info here, great. the closest i can find is the 770 or  733 its got square type lights. cant find engine numbers, everything been painted, where to look? has 3 gears only and 1 reverse. everything seems to fit right. 

 

 

Engine numbers should be on a black tag on the engine if it was not painted to. 

 

Its a Bolens small frame 770 or 733 engines numbers will help me tell you more.

Welcome to GTT. There are over 500 Bolens manuals for download in our "Manuals Section". You are allowed three free per day.  Look for model number 160-01, 161-01, 164-01, or 165-01 manuals. Numbers close to these may cover it too. Good Luck, Rick

It's a 770 and it has a 7 hp Briggs & Stratton vertical shaft. My dad has a 775 that's hydrostatic drive instead of the 3 speed with the same Briggs engine.

I think that it would be worth keeping, especially if you have the mower deck.
 
Bolens was well known for high quality equipment.  While it's a small frame and not a proper Garden Tractor, it would be an excellent mower, and good for light duty towing, etc.
 
Being as small as it is, it would be a good 'butt buggy' if you go to any tractor shows.
 
You might ask the folks at this forum:

It's a UK based group and they would be able to advise you from a UK point of view.

A butt buggy is anything with a seat that can propell itself.   They can be used to ride at flea markets, swap meets, tractor shows or anytime a lot of walking is needed.   It can be a golf cart, riding mower, garden tractor, or a homemade contraption that has bells and whistles to get attention. 

Grandkids also like to run them around the back yard even if there is no "event" to use it.
