Looks like a prototype. You got a dang unusual piece there! That is awesome.

Welcome to GTT. That does seem to be a prototype so, there may not be any manuals for it. There are manuals for the engine in our Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day). Prototypes are rare and can be valuable. If you go to tractor shows that will be a piece to show off. Good Luck, Rick

Anything like that has got to be a collectors item. Nice find. Good luck. I love the ID tag ! Roger

Never seen that type of machine in Ford blue! That is fascinating!
The model # pic shows that this is a Gilson.
Is that what the "9GN" means?

got it for 225.00 from an amish guy that used it on his lawn. If it is a prototype how much do you think a collector would pay for it?

"NOT FOR SALE" and "SAMPLE 3" I love it.

Wow, I was expecting to see a ford push mower, which I have.

I wonder how it got from the prototype / testing stage to the public?My guess is it went out the back door instead of being cut up and scraped.We made lots of prototype parts for the big three automakers and after testing and sending reports to the customer the parts were destroyed or sent to the customer,they were quite adamant about parts not getting out to the consumer.
IMO you have rare piece there.
NOTE is says not for sale,you could give it to me.Don't what to see you get in any trouble.
