BRIEF DESCRIPTION: These trucks are getting so much harder to find, the truck has had the same owner since it had only 500 miles on it. Its been in AZ its whole life, so the lack of rust on the body, floors, cab etc are obvious. THE BAD PART IS: the owner had a thick rubber Bed-mat in the bed for the last 30 yrs, and the bed floor is toast. Youll see the pics. I believe you could just weld in a new bed floor and easily keep the rest of it original, but its something the new owner will have to deal with. Thats really the only area of rot, check out all the 100+ pics below to see what we are talking about. This is an AZ truck. You are looking at all original paint, no rot or previous body repairs. It has 98k original miles on it and not used much at all of the last 15 yrs It starts with the key all the time and runs and drives, but there is an obvious noise coming from the rearend. Has some really cool period correct stuff from the 70s and 80s. Comes with keys and Az title ready to go. Sure it needs some restoration, maybe even some resto-mod touches, but the only real rust on this vehicle is in the bed floor at least.
DONT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUNDS IN HAND BUILD ANYWAY YOU WANT, NO HARM NO FOUL ! Excellent Investment / Clean Clear Arizona TitleIf you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid. Up for Auction: I wont end it early, sorry.
DRIVETRAIN: Under the hood is I believe the original 350 SBC with some basic period correct upgrades. IE headers, aluminum intake and 4v carb. Starts runs and sounds nice. About 10 yrs ago a 700R auto replaced the original trans, which is a nice upgrade. They moved the shifter to the floor and added a B&M style shifter which really needs to be replaced with something better. I never liked them when they where new. But once you get it into the gear position you want (Ie DR or R) you can move or drive the vehicle. That being said, the rearend in the back is making noise like a bad bearing or something, so dont plan on driving too far till you at least fix that. All the AC stuff is still connected and there but its not been charged in about 10 yrs. Also, front driveshaft is out and gone.
INTERIOR: take a look at the pics, it has some alot of Az wear n tear, and sun damage. But the floors and corners are in great shape. Truck also came with a factory tach and gauges. Odometer looks to show about 98k on it, which is probably correct. It will need resto here too of course, but the floors, corners etc are amazingly solid. Carpet is all but gone and taken out. All the glass looks good. Doors open and close well too, no real sag on the hinges. But the AZ sun has been pretty hard on the plastics etc. I think the ft seat is loose too. EXTERIOR: the body has some war wounds, mostly around the lower panels. Hood has the fatal bend midway up only because the hinges got dry from sitting for yrs and someone tried to close it. Hinge springs are off for now. Overall the body is in pretty nice shape and could probably drive it as is on the outside if you wanted. Look in the bed though and thats where the floor got all the rust and rot. Sadly enough. Tailgate is really nice and works. You are looking at the original Yellow paint, thats has some Az sun fade of course. Chrome on the bumper is nice and period correct pushbar is cool.
It commands alot of attention. Even AS IS with the paint issues, people love it.SUSPENSION: the suspension had a Rough Country 5" lift installed back in the day and looks all complete. Sits great and its sitting on some old 15x8 white spokes and really old tires. I also saw some chrome diff covers under there too from back in the day. It may need some work here too, normal wear and tear stuff but nothing seemed obvious when I was driving it around the block.
Check out ALL the pics below ----->it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have a slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll bar on the right side. Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate. more info AFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.
Probably The BEST represented Square Bodies on Ebay. Shows you all the good as well as any bad. We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars. People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rust bucket for weeks. Survivors are getting harder to find ! I know alot of people Would want to R/T clone this car or Resto-Mod it.
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating. People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.

Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as much feasibly possible via pics.

It may have a 2-3" lift at best, but cannot verify. Also the rims may be 15x10. Im going to check the tire Size today to see if they are 33s or ?
