1979 Montgomery Wards (Gilson)

Anyone on here got a Montgomery Wards (also known as Gilson, who made them)? An old neighbor offered me his 8/26.5 for $75. He doesn't use it at age 71. Any thoughts?

Gilson made them...

Everything you wanted to know about Gilson...
The Gilson SNOW BLOWER Shop, where the Gilson Snowblower Legacy Lives

What's the model number ? Should start with GIL then five numbers and a letter. Like GIL 35233A for example.
