Note: Please be aware of the following: This truck’s frame is extremely low to the ground, nd will rub on the slightest variance in road surface. Also this truck must be loaded onto a trailer or car hauler manually as there are no rear brakes. The truck can’t be driven without continual burnouts with every blower surge at idle and is very difficult to control. Actually, t scares the crap out of me. I have a clear North Carolina title in my name. The vehicle is titled as “non-operational” due to lack of exterior lighting, indshield gasket, tc.

I've been asked several questions from bidders, o here is my attempt at answers:
1. Can the ride height be raised: Yes, irbags will do the trick nicely. Currently all steel springs, o an easy fix.2. Can this become a street legal driver: Yes. Depending on your state requirements, his could happen. Basicelectrical wiring for lighting, ignals and horn, ear brakes, eat padding and covers, indshield and rear glass rubber, ide windows and door locking mechanisms. Gauges to match local requirements (speedo, tc.) would also be needed. I think a cooling fan on the engine side of the radiator will also be required. This should be enough to get the vehicle down the road - although likely a very entertaining commute!!3. Does the body have body filler?: Yes, bsolutely. Areas were previously repaired, o everything was sandblasted leaving previous repairs intact. The 2-part epoxy was sprayed over the exterior sheetmetal just to seal what was there and prevent surface rust. The body has signs of previous rust through such as can be seen in the bottom of the doors, ut after blasting, he holes remain and have not been repaired. No new rust through exists. The body has dents and has not been straightened, lthough the trim holes have been welded up as mentioned in the ad. The magic of this truck is everything EXCEPT the body, ut you can't drive a bare chassis without a body, o there you have it.4. Does the engine run? Yes, he engine fires and will rev without any unusual engine knocks, tc., ut it has NOT been tuned or tweaked, nd since this is a dual carb blower setup, here will definitely be tuning required. The carb float levels and idle screws have not been tweaked, iming has not been adjusted, tc. It's a cranky setup at the moment, s all efforts have been spent elsewhere on this vehicle, nd not on detailed tuning. The MSD adjustable spark timing inside the cab is a neat feature, nd should make the process easier.
Thanks for the interest, eel free to ask anything else. I want this to go to the right home, nd hope for a video of it finished, oing a mile long burnout somewhere.
