1962Lawn Boy "Snow Boy" Model 1817

Hello guys, on the main snow blower form page they have a thread on the oldest single stage snowblowers. I thought I would share this Lawn Boy with you here. It's a 1962 Snow Boy Model 1817 Motor Model C17AA Serial 3058819 Two-Cycle 3hp @ 4000rpm. It is missing the chute crank control rod and the ski that the wheels road on. Color was Flame Red.
