Those old Hobarts were indeed excellent welders. That one looks like it has the 4 cyl Willys engine. The downside on them now is parts availability. The engine parts are not a problem but anything needed for the generator might be tough. For $300 I say go for it. If your lucky you will have a good welder with some sweat equity. If your not lucky you can sell the engine to a Jeep nut and scrap the copper in the generator and get all your money back

Not mine. I saw it and was briefly interested, but I don’t need another
project. Thought maybe someone here might be interested.

After almost 2 months I doubt it's still for sale.

No,actually,it looks like it’s still available.
I won’t figure out how to post link right now but I just found
it by clicking-Craigslist -eastern Ct., and searching “welder”.

OK I found it. Too far away for me. But I'd like to have it for the motor. With some changes, it would be a great spare for my old WIllys jeep.
