Got this thing in a package deal with the Wards garden tractor I bought off a friend the other day. Have no idea if it will run or how long it has even been sitting but thought it was cool so I bought it. Cleaned it up and can't find any markings whatsoever besides what is on the old Briggs engine

That is very kool!  looks like its from the 50s but you need to date the engine. Check the post yesterday that gives the dates of B&S engines. Good Luck, Rick

That IS different with that angle mounted engine and big cast shroud.  Kinda looks like an early Snapper, but not really. No turtle head on front or place for it?? Right color for one. Is there a third wheel in back? If not, how would it be even cutting?

That's a nice conversation starter. Gary, the third wheel shows in the last pic below the gas tank area.

The cast deck, color, and handle makes me think it may be an early Sensation mower. 

 

Or, not !

I'm pretty sure it's a Goodall from the mid 1950's. They had a thing for oddly shaped mower decks. I'm trying to find a photo of yours right now...
