Other than saying a great buy and other dumb comments YOU GUYS never did answer the question.  I've never heard of this before and was waiting for the answers.  This really same company as one that made those little bitty tractors or something else? Let's get some real answers for him and I, if there even is any, thanks!

You have a bantam model bt4 built by falls products in Genova Illinois. Falls products bought what was left of Standard Manufacturing who built the Original Bantam tractors. They built their version for a couple of years then stopped. Built late 50s early 60s. I know of around 12 to 15 have shown up in the past few years. It looks to be complete and should carry a good value to the right collector.
