Well at least the original engine is included. Is it really a 1953? Or is it later

Ad says "I currently have the deck off so it goes faster so the kids can ride it around the yard"

I predict it will be junk before July 4.

definitely not '53. Craftsman riders began in 54 originally badged as Hillers. The Craftsman badged Hillers are harder to find than the YardHands. I have 6 YardHands and 3 Craftsmans.

I would venture to guess mid 1960's.
