Responded to your PM. Think for the $$ you can do better. Parts will be your biggest issue to deal with and $$ seems high for this unit.


My opinion.

I don't think it's that old (1964). These are cool old machines. I have one. I'd like to think I could get that much for mine so I don't think you did too bad.
Does it run?
Friction wheel or gear transmission for the drive?
Post some more photos when you get a chance.

I just noticed the auger engage lever coming out the side of the belt cover. I don't think I've seen that setup on a drift breaker before.

Here is a vintage AMF on Pete's site. I think these all trace their heritage back to one of these.
