Craigslist Find....To buy or not to buy???

Found this on Craigslist. Guy says it's in great shape and compressor is removed.  He's asking $50, but I would tryto get for $20. I am working on building a 1939 Frigidaire right now, but I figured this could potentially be a nice second build and of course one more thing to piss off the wife.

My only concern is the door measures 20" wide X 25" tall and overall height of 49" which makes me think the cooking chamber might be on the small side for the amount of time and money I would be investing.  I'd most likely make this electric and bring to the cabin.

Yay or Nay????

Pretty small interior, good for a Butt or two or a couple of Racks o' Ribs. Price seems in the right neighborhood...JJ

Grab it. As Chef Jimmy says, it will be great for small loads. Or build it,then sell it to pay for the 39'er.

Yeah, it might be on the small side, but it will look so cool.....
