This truck belonged to a good friend's son who passed away in 1990, after his son passed away, he parked it in his barn where it has been since. My friend passed away last year and his family has asked me to help them sell off all of his vehicles.
Odometer shows 50964 miles which I believe to be original
Built at the San Jose Assembly Plant, this truck has been in California all of its life.
Equipped as follows:
360 2bbl V8Automatic TransmissionTwo speed transfer case3.50 Limited slip differentialAir ConditioningDual TanksRV Tow mirrors
All factory emission equipment is on the engine.
Body is in very good condition, no rust that I can see, No rust in floors.
The truck was originally Candy Apple Red, at some point the exterior was painted Brown.
Someone stole the tailgate, rear bumper and rear driveshaft, I installed another tailgate that he had at his property and have ordered a used rear driveshaft that will be installed before vehicle is delivered to the new owner.
The distributor was removed and the oil pump turned to build up oil pressure before engine start was attempted, engine starts when you put fuel in carburetor, I put fuel in the fuel bowl and truck runs until the bowl runs dry. I have not added fuel to the fuel tanks as I do not want to contaminate the carburetor. I did not drive the truck, it goes into drive and reverse.
Please know that this truck is NOT road ready, It has been parked for 30 years, it will need to be completely checked out.
Mechanical condition is unknown, ask questions and bid accordingly.
