I'm not familiar with Victa mowers. I believe that's Australian, correct?

I just looked them up and it appears to be Australian indeed and they have more walk-behind models than any of our brands apparently, both 2-stroke (their own Victa engine) and 4-stroke (B&S Quattro series), current models look quite futuristic.

From what I could gather the Corvette models were made between the mid 1950's to late 1960's and had 2-stroke engines. Reminds me of Lawn Boys from the same period or rather what Lawn Boys would have looked like with a less conservative design lol.

Correct - Victa is Aussie - 160cc Corvette is a 2-stroke
