72 Ariens

I have no use for this beast but my dad bought it brand new in 72. He's been battling cancer hardcore..its fun seeing it moving again. New motor, now I'm painting.72 Ariens-20180120_171540.jpg

Welcome aboard. I just picked up a similar machine myself. Mine is a little rough right now though. Is that a T-Type I see?

Its looking great guys, my dad always had a tarp on it so it stayed in good shape. The predator motor is a great choice. You can't go wrong for $100

My eyes went straight to the car too. I didn't see an auger attached and decided not to high jack the thread. Both machines are looking great! Certainly will put a smile on the old man's face seeing his '72 with new attitude
