I saw an ad for two 19 inch LB's and called this morning and left a message. Picked them up this afternoon. One 5273 made mid '70s with the D601 engine and square white shroud and one 5270 with the D600 engine and a green Vader shroud. Guy said the 5273 was running when parked three years ago and that the 5270 was given a "would cost more to fix than it's worth" verdict from a shop. Of the two, the 5273 is in much better shape. The 5270 is all there, but it appears to have had a harder life. Just got them. It appears that the 5270 was a one year only model.

The best part of the whole thing? FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Not that I'm gloating or anything....

Cheers Chums!

Good for you! There seems to be a lot of LB's down in the KC area. I always used to look over the CL for that area when my son was down there. Some good deals at times, too! (Like the one you just got!)

Brad, KC does seem to be a LB hotzone, you're right.

Pics will be forthcoming tomorrow. We're having heavy thunderstorms here tonight.

You guys are my chums, never chumps. I try to treat you all as such too.

Have a good evening friends,

Charlie

Congrats, but D engines didn't have the Vader\Helmet shroud. Are you sure you don't have an F series transplant on that deck?
