If the machine has been maintained I'd not worry about this one any more than any other of it's vintage. Yes... it does have a Kuhn bar which is literally the ONLY selling point for the machine. If they'd licensed the remainder of the Kuhn FC they'd have had a good machine.
This IS a modular bar and you can replace most parts as assemblies in less than an hour if necessary. Biggest thing is to keep oil in the bar and keep the CV joint greased. They don't like rock either... so if you have rock or rough terrain it's probably going to smash some modules and shoes on you. That gets expensive...
As far as the impellar conditioner... it's a lot better than a chevron with no rubber left. Actually, any studies I've seen on the subject suggest that impellars are a more effective conditioning system.
The 1460 Deere is the same basic machine as the 1360 except it has rubber rollers... and a gyro style hitch.
Just check the old thing over and make sure there's NO slop in the turtles. If it's tight it's a 1.5-2k mower. If not... 500 buck mower.

The JD 1360/1460 don't have what I call a "modular" cutter bar that can be repaired in less than an hour if it requires any of the gears(parts keys #14 or #23)

I've never had to change one of them... but my expectation is that they come out the module holes once the center is removed from the gear. You won't fix those stupid shaft bars that quick either if you get deep into one.
The main problem with this bar is shearing the turtle shafts off flush with the bearing when they hit a rock.
