Not mine and I think I extremely overpriced. Pretty weathered. I would be interested if they moved the decimal point over.

This is an Invincible --- one model up from the Grand, and one down from the Supreme.

So, since the listing is gone, what was the asking price?

I don’t think that it is an Invincible, (but I could be wrong). Maybe others will weigh in. The ad is still on Facebook and they are asking $5,800.00. Whatever it is, $5,800.00 is a lot for a weathered machine.

The post is back up and what I am seeing is clearly a way over priced Invincible. The cabinets finish looks like it suffered from exposure to extreme heat and someone tried to strip off the damage. It looks like no more was done to restore the finish and that's a good thing. Enlightening the seller as to the selling price of a pristine Invincible might convince them to bring the price down to earth. Restoring the finish will require an expert to get it right and won't be cheep. The motor board parts have suffered as much as the cabinet, but restoring them should be much easier. I hope someone on the forum saves this one. Here is my Invincible which didn't require any restoration. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21672
