Odd ball haul

It's a late 50's Rugg "Carpet Cut" mower made for the W.T. Grant department stores. There was also another Rugg version built for the J.C Penny stores. It appears to be all original and relatively complete. I do have the mower deck, but am missing the deck height adjustment linkage. There's one bent steering arm, but it appears to be an easy fix. My initial intent was to flip it for quick sale. I've already had some serious interest from the Rugg Mower Club, but after looking at it good, I think I might restore it for my son (he's only 4 months old). It's so tiny and cool though for a little kid. The engine is a 4hp Briggs and the gas tank has a small pin hole and a little rust on the inside. Does anyone have a gas tank like this one kicking around?

My Grandpa gave me one of those when I was a kid. Used to ride it around the neighborhood. I also remember having to have stitches, due to the rope starter pulley flying of and hitting me in the head, the recoil was broke and I just started it with the pulley. I think mine was from J.C. Penney's, it was a light teal color.
