Hello Michel,welcome to the forum.Glad to have you with us.
I would say by the photos,it appears to be a Bolens 600.Probably about a 1963.

Welcome to GTT! :wave:

The Bolens is definitely a Husky 600 model
It should be around 1964-1965

How about the Bolens WAS a Husky 600 originally?

Did anyone else notice the locking differential in the left rear wheel (the red/orange handwheel is missing) ? .....Most likely the transaxle was replaced at some time.

I don't think that the 600 had a controlled diff.

At least not according to this page in the tube frame service manual:

Good catch Bruce, I totally missed the threaded end sticking out where the differential knob is supposed to be.

The rest of the tractor is a 600, just looks like there was a tranny swap :)

Or it could just have been taken off and lost....
