manco model 285 or something similiar to it, possibly an earlier version. The engine is possibly a briggs 7 or 8 hp engine, maybe tecumseh?

I also think that the front might have met a tree or something. Unless its supposed to have that bend in it.

Very close but, not quite, the seat back & front bumper are different. I'd also have to say definitely Manco though...

I'm not too sure.. the seat back okay, that looks different than the 225-12 or 225-15 AmEx.. but the 225 original (earliest model) that was slightly edgier,

And the front bumper looks just crushed to be honest
(it's not raised, according to the second picture) so I
don't think it's the raised triangle one that you'll find on 415's for example...

And, I think it's too small for a Dingo

But you're right, I couldn' say for sure, that's why I said "AmEx-esque"

All fair points; by that reasoning, it could well be an AmEx...
