Looks like a Bantam tractor. Smaller size I think 3Hp. I had a few of the next size 5Hp they had the full fenders on the back. Kids had a lot of fun on them.

I've always thought those things were really cute. It's sad that someone was so darn lazy that instead of taking it apart they chopped the grill and hood up to access the steering gear (I assume).

That is a neat find.Looks in solid shape except for the hood.Forgive me but I can't remember is that a cast grill or sheet metal? If sheet metal,shouldn't be a hard fix.
Makes me think how stupid I was to sell my Hiller Yard Hand back years ago.

The grille is cast, I suppose a more talented welder at cast than I could probably repair it to look like it was never damaged. The hood is sheet metal and would be an easy fix.

The one steering gear is not original and someone thought they had to chop the grille to make it work

Been comparing some photos, would my tractor be a Standard? before they were called Bantam?

If that front tire is the original one, it would be a Standard I believe.
