Have to see the truck in person to appreciate, gets attention on the road every time. Clean title and currently register for a nice daily driver. I have invested over $8000 with receipts in a folder to prove. The milage on the truck is currently 53,000 though believed to have flipped as it restarts after 100,000 miles. Possibly original miles as the truck has been off the road since 1982.
