40 Year old mower still going strong

My grandfathers shed is somewhat of a time capsule. Now that he has passed away, I maintain his property and it is easier for me to use his old Snapper mower than drag mine over to his house everytime I want to mow. I knew his mower was old but until yesterday I didnt know how old. All I knew was that it starts on the first pull every time and only seems to thrive on neglect. Yesterday while rummaging through his shed looking for an air pump, I found the original Snapper brochure. In 1973 my grandfather purchased the Snapper for just under $580. He still has the original grass catcher and everything works just the way it should.
