Is this a factory piece? I've never heard of one, owner says "rare"

Got to love the color.

THIS A 1959 DAVID BRADLEY SEARS SUPER THREE TRACTOR 2HP. DOES NOT RUN AS OF YET BEEN SITTING IN BARN FOR SOME YEARS. NO SPARK BUT I DO HAVE THE NEW IGNITION COIL IT NEEDS COMES WITH IT, OR I GOT A FRESH 7 1/2 HP MOTOR FOR IT FOR A EXTRA 60BUCKS. FORWARD, REVERSE BRAKES AND ITS EVEN GOT A PTO HOOK UP.THIS LITTLE TRACTOR IS VERY RARE. BEFORE YOU CALL GET ON EBAY AND SEE WHAT THE PARTS ALONE ARE SELLING FOR. I WILL NOT SELL PARTS OFF THIS. SELLING WHOLE THING ONLY.. THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT DISPLAY PIECE OR GET IT RUNNING AND USE IT OR LET THE KIDS RIDE IT AROUND. GREAT PIECE OF HISTORY HERE. ONLY SERIUS BUYERS ONLY IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE MONEY DON'T WASTE MINE OR YOUR TIME.

I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination but I'm leaning towards a very rare piece.

As in one of a kind.

As in something that someone put together.

Just my thoughts though.

I agree with homeade.  I have seen other people use the walk behind hood on home built contraptions.  However, supposedly David Bradley did build this, which is kind of close.

Looks safe to let your kids drive with that gear chain by the foot rest!
IInteresting homebuilt. I think if take off that stupid exhaust pipe and repaint it a more normal tractor colors, it would make a nice addition to someone's collection

You...    you mean DB didn't put the hearts on it?

 

Why do they call it Super 3? I don't see anything three about it.
