It certainly was worth what I paid, but it was not as good a deal as what was posted would lead you to believe. It was actually ~$2000. Not complaining, just don't want folks thinking there are a bunch out there going for $1300.I can empathize lol. The OP definitely got a deal!
That is a prime candidate for a refinish and a good rust blue. Ditch the stock and put it in an exhibition piece of Bastogne!
