Vintage 1950 Sears Snowblower Sale

Hi all!

I don't know much about snowblowers and even less about vintage snowblowers..so I'd love to ask you, experts, a question.
Considering the condition of this guy, do you think the pricing is reasonable?

These are noveltys, nothing more.
They barely function as snowblowers, and parts are non-existant.
Value is $0 to $50. And $50 is optimistic.
Realistically, finding a buyer at all will be diffucult, and it could end up in the "give it away to anyone who will take it" catagory.
Demand for these is close to zero..
I would maybe consider paying $20 for one, if working and complete and in decent condition, just to have one because they are interesting..but no more than that.

So the answer is: no, not reasonable.
The seller is clueless and dreaming.

Garage
yard ornament.

buy a bunch of junk snowblowers and open up a snowblower museum. charge admission and make back your investment in 200 years.

now i know there are collectors of almost everything but scot is right. he should know.

Thanks for the answers. It's appreciated.
And look! There is a snowblower museum. Well, it's online, but that still counts, right?
