No,this one is Roper built. Roper did start offering these style tractors along with the Suburbans. Then Sears also offered the Murray built tractors. If you look at catalogs or advertisements you will see these were the mid line,with the Suburbans the higher dollar machines and the Murrays the economy models.

Untouched, refers to the tractor, not the owner, obviously!
