It actually looks salvageable with a lot of work, most of the paint still seems to be present. Getting a bucket of stripper big enough to dip it in could be a problem though.

I’d offer less. Commodity prices are going to fall. China is having trouble and the Shanghai is down 30% in the last year. Better offer $300 tops Jim ;-))

Roger that looks like it might be a 52 Ford
Bondo it looks like it weighs as much as my pick up :))
Dan I bet your dads truck was in better shape.
Shane did you so the size of the foot print on that puppy ? 8’8”x 12’ 2” I’d have to build and addition :))
Alexandre I think your thinking of Red Green. Looks like you have to get in line for the truck.:))
Hey Bob I’ll have them put the planer on your Pay Pal that’s $300 plus shipping to your house = $7500 :)

I’ll pass. I suspect it will need blades. Besides, I don’t have a tub big enough to put this in for electrolysis removal of the rust.

That thing looks scary ... all those exposed gears just looking for a pant leg, a shirt sleeve, or hand!

A friend of my has a lot of vintage equipment … all working and useable … the lack of proper guarding is just amazing!
