I saw this in the Classifieds on RCGroups and had to have it.  It's a Wen-Mac XIII.  Kinda high at $30 shipped, but what the hell.  I wanted it…

You DID splurge. You splurged very well. I’ve never seen one “NIB” like that. That’s nice.

Wow. That's a nice specimen. I too had never seen one of those for sale in 'new' condition, let alone in the packaging like that. I do not think it is that bad for what you got.

Mark,

Great find!

At that price I'd say you got a steal.

Postage paid means you got the engine for less than $25. I don't remember ever seeing a XIII version, much less one NIB!

You stole it. They come up on Ebay from time to time and never bring less than $60.00 NIB. No need to run it, you can find plenty of used runners for far less than what this one is worth.

Didn't know it was owned by AMF, the bowling equipment company. I know they owned Harley Davidson Motorcycle in the 70's. Wonder what else did they manufacture?

AMF also made sporting goods, bicycles and children's wheel goods and machinery for manufacturing cigarettes.

Hopefully it won't leak like those AMF Harley's did!
