Has 350 engine with the 4 speed creeper gear transmission. Drivetrain is great. Trans shifts fin, clutch is good. Dual rear wheel rear end.
Has not been in use for years. Starts up with some starting fluid, (believe fuel pump is loosing its prime) after it starts it idles ok, It is a little chopp, the carb will need a rebuild. Has a y pipe exhaust leak.
