these kinda fall in that weird area of you have to really like these I don't think there is much interest in these styles.

there was one of these for sale at spring tractor show in similar condition he was asking 150 bucks, I looked at briefly and as I walked away he said make any offer he wasn't taking it home. I kindly told him I thought it was fair for 150 but I have too many projects.

I have a 57. Very few around. It's really a lot of fun to drive.

Pull towards you to accelerate and release forward to disengage the drive. And at any point in time pull the handle left and right respectively to steer
