    SN looks like A-461872. Can you confirm?

    If that is the case - it is a 1963.

    Is that an AC outlet I see under the middle of the setting dials? I thought those were all DC machines - no way to easily get 120vAC for other tools etc. Maybe that was an option on some? Or a power inverter off the starter battery? Though, back in the early '60s I don't think inverter technology was around...

    Looks like a rare red/blue face machine which apparently were made for the military and the engine is balanced. It's a very desirable machine if you can get it running and worth a few thousand bucks at least. Price isn't out of line and some people would be all over that. If it turns over probably just needs some mag and/or carb work. Plug in is 110 volt DC.

    Great description!

    Might be stuck?!?

    Simple to work on. Easy access to everything.

    If it's worth your time...

    Personally, I find some kind of Zen messing with old machinery.

    Being what it is, you'd want to try and fix it. Especially if it's not stuck, it's worth the asking price. My guess is the seller doesn't know what he has and that's great for the buyer. Anything less than the asking price is a good deal. If it is stuck or requires more work than you want to put into it, it wouldn't be hard to sell to someone else if advertised in the right place... like a welding forum. The factory red/blue face plate adds to the value over a standard red face or red/blue clone. I'd offer $600 so I wouldn't insult the seller with too low ball an offer. For comparison there is a non running red/blue face plate machine that needs a new engine listed for $2500 in the buy/sell forum.

    The split front panel means it canít be newer than 1967. Sometime in that year they went to the stamped one piece front panel on the SA200
