Default Who made this Garden tractor?

I just picked up a garden tractor with a Briggs NR6 engine. Can anyone tell me anything about this tractor? Is this the original engine? I would love any information about it.

I used to have the same tractor. It's a Speedex, made in Ravenna, Ohio. The NR6 Briggs is the right engine for it. Looks like a nice one.

Thanks for that information. The engine needs to be freed up and the tank needs to be replaced as it is rotted out on the bottom. I am anxious to see this in action. Thanks again.

It is a Speedex Model C that style was made from roughly 1942-1948. Theres no exact date for them besides the engine but thats when the gear case dates it.
