Your picture did not post, but if you can find a model number on the mower, I can probably tell you the year.

well, I dug out the Big Service manual and looked for a match to the pictures you have. Two looked almost the same in the book except for 1 difference. One had a black steering wheel and one had a white steering wheel. Yours has the black wheel.

Here is a PDF I made of the parts list and operations manual:

I've never seen one like that, but it is really cool! That would make a great restoration project!
