This should probably be moved to a different sub-forum for further identification if a moderator sees this.

I had 1 that could of been home made to but there was a few things on it that were definitely not home made. And the way it was put together just didn't look home made.
It had an old vertical shaft points ignition 10hp briggs on it with pull and electric start. Ross steering box with the steering arm sticking out the left side of the tractor and a nice heavy drag link. Cast iron front axle with automotive type bearings and spindles. A small 3 speed with reverse peerless? gear box with chain drive rear. Rear had a small differential with a large sprocket and a mechanical disk brake caliper that used the sprocket as a brake disk.
Very heavy built tractor.Frame was made out of heavy wall 1 1/2" x 3" rectangle steel tubing.
The Hood and grill looked very very similar to your tractor.
It could be possible that there are a few prototype tractors floating around. Some of this stuff looks way to thought out and refined to be home made.
Sadly it sat outside for many many years.Everything on it was locked up tight except the engine. Which I did get running but when I popped it in gear the gear box blew apart. I know I should of kept it but I was around 14 and it was my 1st tractor. I did use the engine in a old Snapper RER that my uncle gave me though.Made a bunch of $$ mowing neighbors yards and bought me an awesome bicycle.Slightly used 1982 GT Pro 20" stunt bike with pegs and HAND BRAKES. Yep Hand Brakes. My 1st bike with them and my last bike with the old foot brake. The good old days how I miss them lol.

Ok just an update! I believe it's a popular mechanics kit mower. Are these worth anything?
