Can you get a serial number on it? There was a GCC-310 built in the 60's.

If it's anything the calibre of the Hobart G-3010 that Hobart Bill IDed for me,It's well worth having. I welded up a bull run for a local farmer back in May that was 16 pieces of 100 lb railroad rail set vertically in concrete with 2 rows of 3/8" wall square tubing running the length of about 160'. I went and looked at the job and saw that somebody had started the job. The farmer said that another guy was there and monkeyed around most of the day getting one rail welded in. Said the welder kept overheating. I asked what welder he was using, he said he thought it was a Lincoln Ranger. I took the job and returned the next morning at 6:00 AM. I taced 4 sections in place at a time then burned them in at 240 amps. I finished by lunch time. The farmer said he could hardly tell I was there from the sound. The other welder stopped by when I was finishing up and asked what POS kind of welder mine was. Why a Hobart, isn't it obvious? Just a mean dog looking for a tough fight, and it turned an easy 500 dollar bill for me that morning.
If its in good condition definately worth 500 imo.
