My grandfather passed away long before I ever got to know him well(I was 4 and 3.5 hours away). I recently have been more interested in garden tractors and have this photo of me being towed by my grandfather and his garden tractor. Can anyone help me with at least what brand and/or model the tractor is? I appreciate your help. Thank you.

That's a Montgomery Ward tractor made by Gilson. Your Grandpa had a very good tractor! I found this pic on the net.

And here is a link to a '74 Wards Gilson that has the full length foot boards like your Grandpas.

Welcome to GTT. There may be some catalog cuts for that tractor too in our Manuals Section. Relax and enjoy the site. Good Luck, Rick

I just saw this post and that pic. That is our MW with my brother and I going for a snow ride. Here are a couple more pics.
