Pile....That's a real beauty !.....(I LOVE old) !

Being the sentimental old fool that I am, I can see the writing on the wall: Lincoln may stop building the generators, and if I don't get one soon, I may never get one !......(I see they took the Classic II off the market already).

The others might be soon to follow !...............

I don't know how many tens of thousands of them are out there. But I expect your greatgrandkids will still be able to pick one up pretty easily.

I'll sell you my Classic II if you want it.

JT you know one of those is off the market

The other is spoken for, so alas they are both off of the market.

Marko nothing on these machines are rocket science, and I might add that I consulted privately with gurus, shamans, and a man who runs a Lincoln generator machine in the Western part of the country on a daily basis.

Find a machine with straight sheetmetal, that welds, and doesn't smoke or pour oil and fix it up like a car restoration project. At the most you will have the machine of your dreams, at the least you will have a fixed up SA-200 that you can probably get $1000.00 more than you paid for it.

Just a fellow in the Southeastern part of the country,

Jeff

Quite a haul there! I like it.

Not sure I’m using that chart correctly, but the closet number the chart has is, D-12664 = year 1937. The serial number on this machine is D-12225 Damn if this machine is that old; it’s only good for an anchor now

It would at that! My first car, was a 1955 Ford Club Sedan with a 292 V-8, 3-speed on the column, with over drive. For such a small V-8 it had lots of power, considering it was wore out when I bought it
