That doesn't appear to be the original engine on there FYI. Looks like a later model tec, you can tell by the heater box and exhaust configuration.

Thanks new to Ariens as I just purchased a 2014 Deluxe 28 but this site got me to lookin at the older ones. I thought the half tear drop would make it early 60s but wasn't sure about the engine. Its located about 45 minutes away and I don't really know what I am looking at/for so didn't know if it was worth looking at the $125 asking price looked reasonable for a toy to leave sitting in the shed.

I think 125 is reasonable if it runs and works as it should. By the looks of it, I would like it better at 75-100. Still, would be a nice toy to keep in the shed and tinker with like you said. The dirt and grunge usually comes off pretty easy and you can make them look sharp with a little time and elbow grease.
