Unless there is something special to it like a creeper transmission or its a low low serial number in the 5-600's then no its NOT a good deal. Originals are not that rare of a bird as they made about 60,000 of them and a good running and operating unit can be purchased for that kinda money or less. A plain roller without any options is probably worth around 75-100 bucks.
