You just about got it for free!

I'll take all you can get at that price! My neighbor has one of those, but I think it's a 67. Won't sell it no how, no way. Has not moved in 15 years. Can you tell the year from the serial number? You can expect to put several $grand into it, but in the end it will be well worth it. Welcome to the group! You've come to the right place!

Striker,

A shed would cost you more than that!

Welcome and enjoy the journey- John

deepseeded guilt

It sounds to me as if you are feeling way to guilty after stealing that unit. In order to assuage these feelings I would be happy to take it off your sullied hands for say...$450.00!

Bad investment.
For just a few dollars more, you could have bought a brand new Door lock assembly.

Such A deal!

Just ONE of your curved glass Original Corning windows is worth
over $700.00 on the replacement market!

Gotta love those farmers that don't have internet access!

Congradulations on your new friend!

So what ever became of this project?
And Striker it has been almost a year since your last post, whazzup?

If I had one dime for everything that is left hanging on these forums I'd have alot more time to worry about it.

And furthermore I'm ............






I notice that the unit has a single Belt-line and I think it says International.

Man, you got a deal. That miniature parking lot light coming out of the front of the rig is worth that alone.
