It looks to be one made by David Bradley for Sears. The model would be a 725

So I take it this isn't a "Custom" or "Suburban" model like the sign said.......

First time I ever seen one in person at a show.

I believe it is a Suburban 725, looks like one I had years ago.  Still have the 7.25 hp engine around somewhere.

 

Here is a link to the Tractor Data information on it:

it has a hand clutch so that makes it a DB model, not a Roper one. Looks like a model 19 brigs engine. I would have to guess its a 64' 725 model. The 64 tractors had that big box behind the hood

ya I should have explained it better. All the DB models were known as Suburbans, they are also all known by Sears as Craftsman tractors. Only tractors in the time period using a hand clutch are DB models. In 1964 Roper produced the Custom series, which used a 3 speed gear box and a foot clutch. So at the same time you had both tractors being built in the same plant at Bradley IL.
