Old Snowbird in NJ

In Toms River NJ.. Just went up about 1pm Thurs (2/12). $200. Claiming to be from late 60's. Not sure how accurate (also claiming 48" bucket). Not my CL post, but I thought I would pass this along in case anyone might be interested.

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)

It's 48 inches round-trip. Left to right and back again.

Looking thru the snowbird sticky. Might be a Gen I (from the 60's?), but wondering if he might be thinking the chute height when mentioning the 48" opening? Or perhaps he means 48 metric inches?

Most likely a 1966 or 1967 model 228.
a "Gen 1" machine, we can tell that because it says Snowbird on the nameplate,
but not Yardman. and its probably a 228 because its missing the engine shrouding,
and it has a Tecumseh.
22" scoop.
