Default power source for double washer

I have a vintage washing machine I would like to power up. I think its a dexter? I would be think it would have been powered by electric motor or possible kickstart engine of some sort? Anyway, I would like to maybe find a kickstart engine for this old washer to display. Can someone who has experience with washing machines tell me what kinda engine should I get my hands on for this ol girl? possibly model and is there a HP minimum? Thank you

I looked over the washing machine and can't find any tags or stamped serial number? Can anybody identify exactly what I have here and possibly date it also? With that help, I can hope to find the correct era style engine. I was told it might be a dextra washer. The wringer is labeled dexta . Thank you
