I picked up this chain drive garden tractor the other day. I got the 1958 date from the serial number on the engine. I have done a bit of research and I am convinced I bought a Bready. I bought it purely because the chain drive got my attention. I know the hood and seat are wrong and it's missing some covers, but it was a good price so I couldn't pass it up. I'll post the few pictures I have of it. I'll get better pictures this weekend if the weather is a bit nicer.

I've found a couple of different colors on it so far. I'll sand down a small portion of it and see how many colors are there. I don't know if it's the original engine. I got it at a good price, so it'll be fun just to drive around the yard regardless.

Surely is a Bready nice pick and I think they also made a10hp model it probably is an early 60s model they would cut a section of the grille out to allow room for the starter. Apparently an option, that engine looks pretty big . Mine is a 6hp model 600 power ette. Wheel Tire Automotive tire Motor vehicle Green

alright thanks. It's not what I normally pick up, but it was far too interesting to let it go. Any idea what mine might be worth in it's current condition?

There's one in our classifieds marked sold that had a 500 tag. All restored and pretty.

There is also a 57 in the registry that the guy wanted 350 for (he put a classified in the registry :wallbanging:)
Both of them have the sheet metal and stuff that this one is missing
Both appear to have original motors.

Prices have gone up and down in the last couple years, and I have zero frame of reference on this model, but based on the info I see, i think you may be a little on the high side.

Sorry, hope that helps, I reserve the right to be wrong. :D

I felt like I was a bit high too. I'm probably gonna lower it to 300. I feel like that might be fair.
