If the guy that own's it has ever taken the head off he can tell you really quick if it was quick attach or not. If he hasn't look really close at the end of the throat by the corn head. It's been almost a year since I've messed with one that old but I believe it's built like an 860, The top of the throat will have a round peg that sticks out on either side that will slide up into two upside down slots on the top of the head. (If I remember right, don't hold my feet to the fire on that) The bottom will have some basically bolts but instead of a bolt head its got a little hook (think of something like the hook on a 3 jaw puller) that will hook onto the bottom of the corn head and you tighten them up. One on either side. I can't remember for sure, we sent one up to Mankato this fall but I didn't work on it.

Very good chance that you can get a nice Model F gas for $1000.

Dad and neighbor bought a 2 year old 300 gas in 69. We were replacing Massey 26 and Masseys were very popular and we were SO proud to have such a top of the line machine. But we had plenty of problems but swallowed our pride and really wouldn't admit the problems even when neighbors would ask. At some point we just got to thinking it must be normal. Well the operation grew and by golly no matter what we were going to have two 300's to get the crop in. Scoured the whole area and couldn't find one as they were still the most popular. Crunch harvest time and decided Gleaner E or JD 55 as last resort. JD 55 won out and it was eye opening. Controls were not nearly as friendly and it had the wagon banger unloading auger. But guess what, dad and the neighbor sat in the machine shed year after year fixing the 300 while I did 80% of the harvest with the 55. We just never had any problems what so ever with the 55. So those 2 went away for a 7700 and it was almost as bad as the 300. So you just never know.

I take it you are in MN? Watch on craigslist, check area shoppers, advertise in The Land magazine (Mankato), Midwest Farm Guide. I have 2 F parts machines.

We ran Massey 510s from 1964 to 1979. During that whole time our cousins who farmed right next to us ran a JD 105. We laughed at them because we had a turret auger, variable speed cylinder/fan and just a sleeker looking combine. Turns out the joke was on us. Their 105 out lasted our 510s by 20 years and I know we spent 3x the repairs and maintenance on our 510s. They did later buy a 7700 at a local auction in the early 90s. It was already wore out and should have been scrapped. They overhauled it but still wasn't near the combine the 105 was. They finally retired the 105 in the early 2000s.
