Built by Quick Manufacturing of Springfield, Ohio. Also know as Springfield. Year is 1965 or 1966. Sorry, but it was Built for Gambles, not by Gambles, they only stuck their stickers on it from the factory.

Welcome to GTTalk. Neat little tractor. Looks like you got some info. on it's origins. Perhaps the Springfield experts will know where to find manuals for this tractor!

Dating the engine by the serial number will give you an approximate date, too.

I wonder how an adult male ever sat on that thing.

The hood, seat, shifter knob and pto knob are all "Springfield" for sure.
