Default Porter Cable

I was looking at a Porte Cable riding mower today. It didn't have the engine. Looks to be late 50's early 60"s. It used a horizontal shaft engine and has a cast iron transaxle. Wasn't in too bad a shape. He wanted $25. Wonder if I should buy.

Is it one of those with the tiller sort of steering set up, and looks like fender skirts over the back wheels? Heck yeah!

No, it's not one of those futuristic looking ones. It is pretty plain looking. Seems to be in decent shape. I'll take some pictures tomorrow.
