Looks like a nice one 62 or 63 ranger. I don't know how to tell for sure other than serial number.

   Nice looking machine but the wheels all look to small.  I agree with the others mid 60's somewhere.

There should be a shift pattern decal below the dash on the hoodstand. Serial number is likely printed on the top of that decal.

It looks to be either a 32E which has the Tecumseh HT55C engine or a 33E with a Tecumseh H60-75009. Extremely nice condition and would make a great addition to any collection. Thanks for the pics.

Nice!!! The Lawn Ranger always look a little strange with the small tire/wheel combination.

If it runs and drives you should expect to pay around $500 , others here will know better. Location and how much you want it make a big difference.

$500.00 is about right for a decent Ranger - they came with either a 7 or 8 hp Tecumseh as I  remember.

1962 Lawn Ranger was a H55 (5.5 hp) Tecumseh.

1963 to 1968 were H60 (6 hp) Tecumseh.

1969 was a V70 (7 hp) vertical shaft Tecumseh.

1970 were V70 & V80 (7 & 8 hp) vertical shaft Tecumseh.

And 1971 was the last year with a V70 (7 hp) vertical shaft Tecumseh.

Small mower, small transaxle, small spindles. Just like why LT's have 18" rears.
