Picked this up last weekend for only $120. Turned out to be a 1978. Stumbled across it looking for an 80s MW mower my parents had that i rode as a kid and couldn't pay it up. Runs, drives and cuts really well. Plan is just to clean it up and use it. Hope to maybe come across a snowblade, blower or tiller for it eventually. These suckers are kind of hard to find much info on but i did manage to find the manual online. Just seems like there's not many like this one floating around online.
Need to get better pictures after i get it cleaned up. Having a buddy straighten the dent out of the hood for me so it'll have to be after i get that back from him.
