The Following Information has been on this ad since originally posted, some no longer applies, as noted above, the motor is now gone and the big Radial white walls are now gone. This ad has been up for awhile with no-one coming to look at the truck in person, but it’s been seen at many events up and down the west coast up to the past couple weeks “may 2018, when motor was pulled”, read ad details and options for prices, title is clear in my name. Ask questions if you have them, disregard information about motor and big Whitewall tires, otherwise it’s all the same, good truck as is or any direction you want to take it.
