Carpet:shag baby!This is a very solid and dependable truck. The old saying "I wouldn't beafraid to drive it anywhere"..... Well, I've driven this truck all over the United States with my 2 small boys. Never any problems!
The truck is low. The suspension is set up for that. Itdoes NOT ride rough. I've driven it on some of the worst roads in the Untied States. All without incident. You CAN haul with it. Iregularly haul kids, motorcycles, junk & ass. Youdon't have to worry about scratching the bed! Custom fabricated receiver hitch with trailer wiring.
The truck is very rare.Always the only one at a show. Try finding one, muchless one that you can drive everyday. Everything works as it should.
It isregistered as a 1960? DMV....
