Geez, Will... I dunno...
At first, in thought Sears. Custom or some such, but colors wrong I think. That tranny looks peerless... If it really is, didnt Dura use their own tranny?

BTW Casey may be able to pick it out by sight if a Dura.

Alan is correct, I know what it is. It is NOT a Dura product. It is in fact a mid 60s Gilson Brothers tractor chassis (65-67). I have one of these machines and they are just as rare as a Motomower so worth picking up. Dura had their own trannys, Gilsons have Peerless like a lot of others.
That Gilson would have had an 8 HP Kohler K series with starter generator. (mine has a later 70s Briggs in it)
