Does it look like this or this? Usually you can’t go wrong with old iron, I actually prefer it and have done quite a few restorations. The stuff was built stronger in the old days, before computers and simulations telling them just how little material they can get a way with now a days. Can’t say if that’s a good price or not, a lot will say it’s too much cuz it’s old, not understanding. Me, I’d pay it, but I’d also try to get them down first. $300, $250 would be good. But I’d look it over first and run it. Check the tires, how it tracks, the bearings for blade tracking, tensioning mechanism, listen to the motor bearings, wheel bearings, check for any play, the table trunnions, etc..
