Hey Samba people.
I've been after this 1968 double cab for a few years now. Finally was able to make the deal happen.

7 hour drive from my place in Illinois to Port Wing, Wisconsin. We started the journey at 12:30 am. The owner graciously unearthed it from its 25 year slumber a few days before I made the trip. As you can see, it was a very tight fit.

Just enough dust wiped off to see. Believe it or not he got it running and drove it out to the carport so we could easily pick it up. The brakes still work too!

Had to take a photo by lake superior!

We hit a few rain storms on the way home which nicely washed most of the dust away.

Finally home in the garage.

I'm totally wiped and cant think right now. Maybe I'll start a thread tomorrow with more details and pictures.
Thanks for looking
