Was pulling some deere parts at s guys house and saw this thing there. Body in good shape, engine seized. He is taking any offer. Throw a harbor freight engine in it for fun?

 I wouldn't put a Harbor Freight engine in that Pontiac. Move the mower out of the way so we can get a better look at the car.

I don't know anything about that old tractor.  But what's going on with that old poncho in the background?

I had one of those, fun little tractor. Nice turning radius, great for a 1/2 acre or less.  Tell us more about the pontiac !!

Pontiac is a rust bucket. Guy got it in perfect shape, had engine overhauled, got it home and never touched it again. Sat outside to this day.

How hard would an engine swap be in that little tractor? Could be fun.

I've got one of them with an 8hp. Another similar with an 11hp. You can have the two of them for $100. Pull the spark plug, spray in some WD40, put some Marvel Mystery Oil in the combustion camber, detach the belts and try to turn it. The tecumsehs seemed to freeze up easily but could be loosened. Good Luck, Rick

Mower and tractor looks in good shape. Put some thing in it or try to unseize it. What have you got to lose. It doesn't run now, so you can't make it any worse. The car looks to be a 71/72 lemans, gto / judge type car. Noel

Yeah but that ram air hood won't fit on the mower. !! Leave the original hood on the mower and have some fun with it. You may end up with a sweet little mower that just needed some TLC.

And yes it is a shame to see the old ponti-rag suffering like that.
