I paid $1500 for a GM 3 years ago. It's rough, bad tires, complete except for the battery box. Bad tin, cracked head, not sure what else.
I've been accumulating parts for it over the last 3 years before I really tear into it.
My son went in on it with me. He's always wanted a G, and thought it was worth it to have a Deere with the name stamped into the axle.
