Default I Rescued an Ancient Round Head CCK w/Transfer Switch From Craigslist

I am not really posting this as a "for sale" rather than I relocated the for sale unit to my shop so somebody who really appreciates these can get it.

Appears to be a pretty much unmolested CCK from whenever. Hasn't been run in years but must have been hooked up for home standby.

I paid $150 for it, I will take the same from whoever wants to come get it.

I just did not want it to be used as a spare lawn mower engine or made into paper clips.

It won't let me upload the pictures, says internal server error, am I doing something wrong?

I need that about as much as a kick in the head. But would like to have it.
A great example of this kind of engineering and product quality.

Looks like "122C7..." to me.

December, 1962 maybe?

Neat old unit, love the art deco styling! If anyone is coming across I-80 in next week or two I could meet in Wendover, otherwise its just too far

I would like to do a nice repaint job (the proper way) to make it look better than new. I assume the paint has metallic. California is too far for an afternoon trip for me
