I would say its a good price

The Model A is the smallest of them all

Havent seen may compared to the Model D

Always seems to be a Gibson D or SD at the shows  never see the Model A

     that has been on up for sale for a while now. I thought I should go have a look. Have to dig the trailer out of the snow bank, check the tires, check the lights, find the hitch, fight with the wife. Then find a place to put it when I got it home. And I figured it would need tires all the way around. looks like a good deal for this area, you should buy it and post here about how great it turns out. Kicking my self in the but will be the most exercise I have gotten all winter. Don

I really like the Gibson tractors and I'm hooked on them. The engine should be a Wisconsin AEH, and they are great engines! If it needs a rebuild, rebuild it instead of using the Briggs. The output/ PTO shaft diameter on the Wisconsin is larger than the Briggs, so the original drive pulley won't work on the Briggs without a sleeve. Wisconsin engine parts for the AEH can be found for cheap through a seller on ebay. Just give him a call and he'll hook you up. The main thing will be the condition of the crankshaft rod journal. Hopefully it doesn't need to be turned down .010 or .020. Things start to get costly at that point. I think it's important to keep these old machines as original as possible, especially an early A like that one.
