Out here in Portland those things list for a grand and more. And yes, I think that's insane. They do sell though.

So the prices seem to have jumped in 2 years, I can tell you they are asking 600 to 750 in the Detroit area, but I think not that high everywhere. There are a couple of flippers here who have driven the prices up,,seems you can find them lower in ohio wisconsin PA. I bought this one 2 years ago for 250. Mine is older

Even though it is vintage prices still go down in the winter..try to get it for 400
you cant go wrong for around 400

Looks in nice shape.
