    I hope this picture turns out!

    I'm not sure of the age of this woodstove, but it is usuable. It was in the house we just bought, but we won't be using it. There has been some interest from a few people that would like to buy it to heat their workshops/garages.

    What price do you think we should ask for it?

    Thanks!

    Oh, and BTW, the tin cans on the top of it don't really belong there! LOL We believe the previous owner put them there to divert heat.

    Hey, are you sure that's not an airplane engine off a P-51 Mustang?

    Look in 70's era tmen magazine. Was mentioned few times. Idea was that air from cooler floor area flowed up thru the tubes, got warmed, and exited the top. Neat idea. No notion of how well it worked. If in good shape, probably find a fan of these stoves that would pay more than somebody just wanting a shop heater. Suggest maybe ebay sale with caveat that purchaser has to pick up locally?

    LOL Yeah, it is sort of creepy looking, doesn't look that much like your average woodstove.

    Thanks for the tips, everyone! I guess I'll do some searching online and see what else I can come up with on these weird stoves. Still not sure how much to ask for it, though!

    In JAK's references above, I saw one asking price of $350, another of $850. There maybe more.

    Good Luck,
