Interior: The original seats had met their match after 44 years, o the previous owner had them reupholstered in the fabric you see in the shots. Seats three across the front, ith the rear wide open ready for it's next great adventure. There's some light surface oxidization on some of the interior of the upper bodywork as shown in the photos.
Exterior: The wheels and white upper bodywork are both recently repainted, nd while there's some spots of over-spray evident, hen taken in context along with the original blue bodywork, t looks just fine. The logo from their bakery remains on the door.
Drivetrain: It just received a new battery, hich I mention as you reference Montana - we put in a big-'ol-honker of a battery, ated for 1000 CCA at 32-degrees / and 850 CCA at 0-degrees (Far). The truck fires up quickly and without holding the glow plugs here in Virginia. We just put on new front brake shoes, nd replaced the master cylinder.
Misc: It'll need tires sometime in the near future if you're going to go offroad. It does include a spare, th wheel.
