I came across this while browsing Craigslist and thought somebody might find it interesting. I don't know enough about these to know if its authentic and if its worth even remotely that much.

You'd think for that kind of money at least they'd throw a set of new front tires on it!

Black starters and generators really bug me. But I'm campaigning to get people to paint them right, LOL.

You are in the correct S/N range, however the S/N is on the transmission bell. Likely the transmission has been replaced at some time. Perhaps it was restamped with the original S/N. Perhaps not.
