The seller claims that this truck was extremely well cared for by its first owner. They kept it in the garage and supposedly never drove it in the the rain or snow. That’s hard to believe, but you never know. Apparently, they once drove it to work and someone dinged the side of the bed. So, they promptly had it repaired and that side of the truck completely repainted. The tale does seem tall, but it is in amazing condition. Take a look here on eBay where bidding ends later tonight.
The interior is extremely clean, but I suppose it could have been restored at some point.
Door tags are always a good place to look for evidence of a respray. Sometimes you can find evidence of tape lines, but I don’t see anything suspicious here.
If this truck had been driven in the rain or snow, that sticker on the fender most definitely wouldn’t still be there. Perhaps the tale is true…
The inline-six engine is claimed to run like a Swiss watch. That’s nice to know, but considering how high the bidding has gotten, I doubt it will see much use.
This truck was built to work. It’s simple and tough and was never intended to be cherished like this one seemingly was. The seller mentions that the tires have been replaced, which is a good idea if you intend to drive it, but I would really like to see the date code on those old bias plies before handing over the big bucks for this one.
