The oldest BC I have ever seen!

Check out this BC on Ebay. I have never seen one this old.

That is an old dog !! I also looked at the sellers other items and he has a '63+ Ariens 10ML60D for sale. He seems to like to price stuff at $350 as he has a number of machines at that price point. The BC might be a little less due to the "original" state of it.
I wonder if he's a member here ??

God bless the old machines.
Long may they run!

PS - I love that parts diagram, and how it gives credit to "the inventor" Robert O. Gettleman.

I hope somebody restores that one, even if with a new TECUMSEH, NOT Chinese Predator crap.

There isn't any money in it but I agree. IMHO That needs to have an original or original style engine.

Yes it is and you can see it in the diagram I posted too. I would love to own that. Should be in a museum.
