The model 1-0150 is a 1971 800 Special. The 6 following the model number is not used but if you subtract 5 from that 6th digit you get the model year.
6-5=1=1971.
The will see 6, 7, 8 and 9's representing 1971-1974 with the attachment model numbers at the time also.

The operator manual can be downloaded from the Files of

named
Tractor 1971 800 Special 1-0150 OM #A-5278.pdf

Nice looking tractor. Not many Wheel Horses used a B&S with a starter/generator.
