Very nice specimen. My sister and Brother in law bought one of these new in the early 60's. They were built in Solon, Ohio about 40 minutes from where I live. I found a couple pics that show the original color scheme of your model:

Thanks for posting the pics. A very nice tractor! I see they weren't afraid to do things differently. It looks like small coil springs on the front spindles for a little bit of front suspension.

Never seen one of those before. That's a great find and it looks like a very sturdy little tractor. What engine is in it?
