I picked this up a couple years ago. Not sure who made it. on the back of the grill it's stamped July 11 1967. Continental is on the grille - raised letters. Grille is cast iron. was told the 7 hp Briggs and Stratton is original. Any help would be appreciated. I have done a little cleaning up on it, Hope you like it.

That's a neat looking little critter.Looks like a baby Pennsylvania Panzer.

 

Continental Manufacturing and Sales, Arlington, TX  made some smaller mowers like that but I can't find any other info other than a picture of another model.

That's an unusual one.  Eric had the same thought I did... a little baby Panzer!

 

I like the colors you painted it. 

 

Eric's hit on Continental of Texas is probably the maker.  I remember seeing one like that come up on a forum awhile back with the original decals.

thanks.I haven't found so much as 1 picture online. I am currently working on rebuiling the carburator,the fuel tank and the exhaust. I don't know what kind of exhaust muffler it would have had. The fuel tank neck is half gone- so looking for a replacement . Any ideas where to find one? I know it's a small tractor - just thought some of you would like to see something different. :smilewink:
