Couldn't resist purchasing this yesterday. Needs a little TLC, but seems to be pretty much all there, including a blade. SN 189121

Looks like an original manual that came with it.

Welcome! Looks like a nice one. Maybe a little hood damage. Has the fixed front axle. The manual appears to be from the mid 60's.

The seller was also listing a '67 version, so I'm guessing now that the manual belongs to that one.

It was everything I could do to keep from buying them both.

That manual should suit you fine. There wasn't many changes to the Cub from 1947-1979. Mid 60's they went to 12 volt and changed the sheet metal a little.
A 1955 would have had a red grille originally and switched to white in 56 but it does not matter.

That’s a nice looking tractor. The manual appears to be for a ‘64, so it probably covers 6 volt and 12 volt Cubs I’d expect.

Welcome to the forum, nice looking "55"! It's odd that the original purchaser sprung for the deluxe seat but not the adjustable front axle.

I'm not sure the deluxe seat was available in '55. It was probably added later on.
