Local pickup only and buyer is responsible for ALL shipping arrangements (I can get it to a local shipper, within 25 miles of Zip Code 81526).

Need to complete:


Rear wheel seals are starting leak slightly. I have new axle shafts, all seals and bearings to complete this project…just no time or desire.


Needs power brake booster…maybe $100 part and a little work, brakes are now non-power but work fine if you use them like non-power brakes.


You get the idea. I am most certainly forgetting a lot of stuff, over $13k in the project.
