I spotted a XM215 almost 25 miles from me hiding among a bunch of storage trailers. I inquired to find he also has tons of extra parts for these including double-shaft pto's for dumps and fuelers, tailgates, extra NOS radiator and extra bed. It has been there about 15 years, driven up from Binghamton NY area and parked , owner hasn't had much time to do much with it. Tranny is A-OK. He didn't initially want to sell but admitted he doesn't have time for it. So he asked for an offer. I would have to take all the extras, many of it NOS, and he is looking for a number over $4k for the entire lot with truck. Good clean original truck only needing minor body repair (and yes paint) and a typical checkup from sitting awhile. I know the parts collection is worth quite a bit, no more shopping around and wasted time on dead-ends. What to do, what to do ? I already have way too much more stuff to get rid of, and am too old to finish maybe just a few of them if I'm lucky. What the heck would you guys do ? I am really torn, an unmolested 215 would sure look good just sitting at my old gravel pit with the other old machines and putter it around once in awhile. But I don't have time to restore it and no time to sell the tons of parts before I'm gone . As the saying goes and as of a few months ago, I have the $ but not the time ..
