Default Garden Tractor ID

Drove by a garden tractor Saturdey, was just wondering if someone might know what make it was. It is garden tractor size, back wheels about 16", but it has two front wheels in a tricycle configuration. There is no sheetmetal or engine left, but the configuration has me stumped: garden tractor tricycle. Help?

I do believe that Gibson made one with the wheel configuration you describe. My poor memory recalls it as a model B, I think. Should have had a AEH Wisconsin engine on it and a three or four-speed manual transmission like that found in thirties and early forties Chevrolet cars. This one would have had a hood.
Just a guess.

Copar Panzer built a tricycle type garden tractor. There were some real small ones too. One was a Bantam, I believe. Another was called the Yard Hand, I think.
