Bolens "Arctic 70"...how much should I advertise it for?

Hi,

I have what I believe is a 60s machine here. Electric start, 2-stage. I've used it several times over the past 30 years or so but it never seemed to do the job real well. Was always a bit balky to start and keep running. Hasn't run in probably 10-20 years though so have no idea what sort of condition it's in. I'd like to sell it but have no idea what to ask. Can't find any of these on eBay (lots of manuals though!). Any suggestions? I'll sell it local pick-up only (PA) Prior to listing it, I'll certainly see if I can get it started but really don't want to put much time into it. More interested in selling as is.

Thanks...
Keith

do you have any pictures?

it may be one of those barn finds like a Mustang Mach 1, Chevelle, GTO , Shelby , old Harley , or some other very rare find.

you may have one of those.
