Robin,

That's a nice G518 totally worthy of restoration, and offered at a great price! 8)

Is it towable in the condition it's in? Looks like the frame in the front is alittle bit bent.

The front frame is bent a little on one side. It looks road worthy but I wouldn't tow it any great distance. I hauled it home on my flat bed.

Hate to see a restorable one go. But I'm on the East Coast... That said, if the gas axe IS coming out I'd be interested in the brake handle, reflectors, landing leg bracket and fenders. I might want the lunette and casting too, though I just bought some from an M101... I know the fenders would have to go freight strapped to a pallet and shipped via Fastensal or something. If that's the case then little parts could ride along.

Wow if it were in my AO I would have it in my yard! Just a quick sandblast, primer, and paint job, (and maybe a ding or two knocked out) would make this a great trailer. I think it's pretty awesome just the way it is. It has its original data plate. Hard to believe no one wants it, especially at the asking price! 8)
