Classic Snap On combo
« on: August 12, 2017, 07:32:52 PM »
I picked up these boxes separately the last few weeks.  The roller is a KR 352 manufactured in 1957, and the top box is a 1969 KRA 59A.  Both boxes need a cleaning and will likely be repainted at some point.  The top box fits perfectly on the roller.  I do have the cover for the open space on the roller, it's pushed up in the box.  Total cost was $105

This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

Very nice I have that same 57 bottom roller and a slightly smaller top box also a 57
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Wow!  Honestly, the price I paid was close to my limit for each box.  The roller was originally priced at $200, which I just laughed at.  After a couple of weeks, it dropped to $100.  I sent him a text asking for more pics, then offered $50.  He countered with $60 and we split the difference.  For the top box, he was originally asking $80 and I offered $50.  Since these are just collector boxes for me, I would've had no problem with walking away from either.

Both boxes are built tough, it's amazing how heavy the top box is!

Given the condition, the price is about right for what i would pay also.
That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke

Not around here, once the knotheads started tossing in the word "patina" that added a hundred bucks or so to everything, well that, and the words "man cave"  ::)

I obviously have to figure out how to get the patina loving folks in my store.  To be honest, I have a hard time selling single bay top and or bottoms.  They just don't move.

What you need Phil is a stylish salesman suit! Like Herb Tarlic from WKRP.
Nice powder blue... white patent leather shoes and belt...
You'd be stylin' and profilin' so good the tool boxes will sell themselves!
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

I would add a shirt plastic pocket protector pouch to Brslk`s list
The thing I like about old cars/trucks is the extraordinary lack of plastic.
