Here is a few pics of a 1960 Craftsman snowblower I picked up a month or so ago at a local auction. It appears to never been used at least not much, inside gas tank is like new, same as carb and the oil is still clear in color. From what I have read it is called the breadbox snowblower, because of the cover over the motor.

I've seen models like that on one of the snowblower forums I'm on. From what I hear, they are great machines.
