Neighbor is looking to sell his Economy tractor. Not sure of the serial number, but he told me that it has a Wisconsin pull start engine. Since I don't know anything about the tractor was hoping for some quick opinions. Is the tool box original?..Thanks Joe

That's a Briggs engine under the hood. It is a horse of an engine, it will last just as long and run just as good as a Wisconsin.

I agree with the Briggs engine. I have a '56 Economy with a Wisc that had elec start and a generator.
Mine has a battery holder of angle iron that is in the same location as this tractor. I think this tractor has been modified from its original state.
In my opinion it is an early '50's Power King model with the smaller front wheels.
An Economy model would have the 12" front wheels. The Jim Dandy models with the small front wheels did
not start being made until 1957-I think and they also had the c channel front frame.
As far as the price of $850-I don't think that is too far off the value. But if your are looking for a true original to
restore, I think tis one is not very close.
