1976 Montgomery Ward Snowblower manufactured by the Gilson Brothers Co. I’ve updated the ignition, fuel line, filter, carburetor and lubed it. There’s an area on one side that had a repair (weld) done to it, also a few of the cleats on the tires are missing; But with the chains on, it does the job.
