Poor guy is delusional.
Well, it does say "barn find". Maybe it comes with the barn and 5 acres? :toilethead:

I'll go ahead and post the pic for posterity, but I expect it to be around for a looooooooong time at that price.

Actually,I'm going to play Devils Advocate.
The loader is worth a grand. Possibly more in some markets, especially with it being a self leveler.
The OEM dual kit is a couple hundred at least. OEM Manure Forks, probably a hundred.
Is the motor destroyed or just stuck from sitting? Coil good? Starter? These parts all have some value.
Not saying its a screaming deal, all I'm saying is he's probably within a few hundred.
I spent more than I should have for my loader, but I had waited over two years to find one local-ish and I had a project that would be made much easier with much easier with a nimble loader tractor.

A lot of people are quick to judge a price, but I daresay you've lost sight of the art of negotiating.  It's an asking price.  It's meant to be high.  The lad would be delusional if he didn't think someone wasn't going to come and knock him down to $1500, which is a more than respectable price for a loader, manure bucket, factory dual wheel kit, 3-pt and an SS/16 --even with a locked up engine.  I'm not an Onan guy, and I'm certainly not as big of a Sears guy as I used to be --but even I know that in the shape that machine is in, that engine has a ton of good usable parts --or could even be gotten running again.  

Here is how I break it down:

Loader: $800 +/-
Manure Bucket: $200 +/- (try buying another)
Tractor: $300
3-pt (though incomplete, the expensive parts are there): $115
Dual-Wheel Adapter: $150
Chains: $50

So, $1500, $1600 or even $1700 isn't unforeseeable depending on how a buyer values each item, or the package as a whole.  

Everything looks to be in very nice condition for being a "barn-find" --so I'd suspect that everything would be in good order.

Just the $0.02 of someone who isn't afraid to pony-up for something worth while, and doesn't want things for nothing.

See thats the problem,most guys scour craigslist looking for a deal, and those same guys still dont have a loader and spent countless hours looking.My times valueable so if I see something I want I pull the trigger if the price is fair.
