The stock air tank will fit under the truck after exhaust replacement. Current exhaust is crap. Stock air tank in the bed.

NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE BUYERS: TRUCK IS LOCATED IN SAN DIEGOBe prepared to pay for Shipping. I sold an old IH truck to a kid that didn't plan for the shipping from San Diego to Connecticut. It took months before he had a plan. This truck needs to move soon. $250 Cashback if it leaves by the end of March. If you own it in April and it's still at my place, we will have to arrange for storage or ship to intermediate yard.HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO BUY.
The truck is drive-able and operable as-is. If you complete all the optional modifications, it will be an awesome, powerful, fun vehicle. The gull-wing hoods are easy to work with and under. The Loadstar is an iconic piece of transportation history. The cab is in good shape, the bench seat is nice. All the glass is good. It's been well-loved.
