Default What Kind of Vintage Walk Behind Tractor is This?

My brother passed away recently and he had a vintage walk behind garden tractor. I remember using this back in the late 50s and early 60s. It has a 4hp Briggs & Stratton engine and four implements. We plan on selling it at the estate sale on Oct 11,12 &13 but don't know what we should be asking for it.
Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.I've attached a few photos to give you a better idea what I have.

A couple of the implements might be worth more than the tractor itself. It's got the wrong engine and missing the hood and gas tank.

Thanks for the input. Since I'm 700 miles away from the location of the tractor, I had someone check the markings. Turns out it is a Bradley model 917.5751 sold by Sears. One of you suggested the implements might be worth more than the tractor itself. Any idea the price range of this tractor in this condition? How much would implements go for? Finding a good home for it is more imortant in what we can sell it for. Any help would be appreciated.

The 5751 was the first model that D.B. made. The spike harrow-$50-$75. The cultivator- $25-$35. These prices are based on my opinion and experience. Unfortunately the tractor probably wouldnt sell for much without its original engine, fuel tank and hood. Is that a fertilizer attachment or a seeder thats resting on top of the cultivator?

In this area all together at an auction might get you up to $200, maybe $300 on craigslist. That is a seeder on top of the cultivator, $50-150 depending on shape and how many seed plates with it.

The cultivator looks like it might be the hanging model and there is another implement next to the harrow. Can't tell but the lid might not be there for the seeder. Later, Jeff Smith
