Default Ideal vertical almost ready.....info wanted

Because this was purchased with the idea that it would be a good driveway sentinel......and the fact that it seams it will run again makes me like it all the more. tag says ideal gas engine type M 2 1/2 hp, can not find a lot of info on them, I suspect this is a fairly early example, would like to know if there's a few out there and any type of literature or ads would be greatly appreciated...or a manual or price list etc. And if you have one and want to make it go away....please give me a shout...I would like another.
