Hi Tim.R

It looks to be about a 1972 Victa Pro ,the engine numbers would show a more exact time frame.

https://www.outdoorking-forum.com.au/forum/u...victa-engine-parts-list-and-manuals.html

Copy and past the links if they don't work as sometimes this site won't let them work no matter how I upload them.


Cheers
Max.

Yes It's definitely a 1972 model going by the engine number Tim. I've a few of this type of mower ,a few green models that are the Special and at least one orange Victa Professional. The Chevy Orange is a good off the shelf colour paint match for the base and cowl ,this paint doesn't require a primer and won't wash off if you spill fuel on the paint. Cheers Max.

I'm not sure where you would buy a side catcher from Tim as they aren't for sale very often ,you could try eBay or Gumtree. Maybe put an Wanted ad on the UK Gumtree for a Victa side catcher.
