    No, several times it was specifically noted as a '37... He had pictures, looked to be like a 552 model... I think someone replied to his ad, and gave him the news..., the ad has been pulled..

    It appeared to be a 552/553... It looked like our old 553, vintage 1963.

    In 1935 Harold and Elmer Pond founded the "POND TRACTOR COMPANY", who built Speedex tractors. They developed the Model B which is the first four wheel riding garden tractor in America. It had tiller steering, steel wheels, Briggs & Stratton Model ZZ air coooled engine, a Ford model A transmission, and Ford model T rear axle. By 1940 it was sold with rubber tires and by 1941 it was sold with a 6HP Briggs engine. During this time they also developed the Model A and C walk-behind Tractors. Before 1948 the Model FG was developed using a Ford Model A 4-cylinder engine.

    In approximately 1946 the brothers split. Elmer Pond moved to Indiana and founded the "POND WHEELHORSE COMPANY". Harold Pond then changed his company name to the "SPEEDEX TRACTOR COMPANY".
