Default Found an Onan AK today

I came across this little gem in a barn today. It's in perfect condition. Paint looks like new. Gas tank smelled like varnish so we drizzled a little fresh gas in the carb and with a couple pulls it fired and run just enough to make the bulb on the end glow a bit.

It's one heavy little gen set.
Can anyone tell me the build date?
What's it worth?

I offered $200 for it so I might be able to get as many as you want if he takes it.

Seriously, it looks almost new. I knew it was old and was shocked at its condition.

A friend of mine bought a warehouse full of fire department stuff. It was on a skid with some other old Winco sets. The muffler still has most of the paint on it.
