    It looks like its in good shape. Unless someone really wanted to burn a classic, theres tons of mid sized EPA certified stoves out there that you can buy brand new, get a 10% federal rebate on and be way ahead of the game. I'd pay 3-350 for something like that if I couldnt afford a new stove...if I was just a typical homeowner. Now, a guy who loves the old classic VC stoves, is only gonna use it once in a while...I may be tempted to cough up $500 for it.

    Those are decent stoves for there age. Don't bother cleaning the glass if you get it, it will dirty up within a couple hours as there is no airwash system on those stoves. Second problem is that part are a little harder to get for that age of stove. If i needed a stove for my shop i'd offer something around $300 and see if they'd take it.

    Honestly, I am looking for something much larger than this resolute- eyeing the Jotul F-600. I have seen this stove and thought I would post in case there was someone out there looking for a classic.

    Yeah, cmon, I looked at the F500 and think I need to go with the big kahuna on this one. Comparing with my father's defiant, we should have more btu output with the jotul.
