They are heavy as hell, but very rugged, stable machines. For a 9-year-old kid, my concern would be how is the weight going to affect her ability to turn it?
Erik is right about them being odd, but with that said, there's a certain charm in a sled that's homely like a tractor. They don't break very much and parts are still available to some extent- they're a common back lot and boneyard find. JLO engines, which I'm guessing yours has, are easy to get parts for and easy to care for.
If I was on the market for one, I'd guess one pretty much good to go is worth 3 C-notes.
