I purchased a 1985 60 series that has 167K on it from the original owner from P.V.
I love the 4 spd trans and the old school manual choke too :)
He has too many cars and didnt want to spend anymore $$ on it. It was running way rich, power steering leak too, door handle broken, and a few other minor issues.
She is an ugly duckling but with some TLC and some help from other CSC'rs with parts I can give her a new life and make her good for another 15++ years. The body is rough but the record keeping (which I received just recently) and maintenance was phenomenal. There are no leaks except a power steering hose under this truck!
Replaced within the last 40K miles:
Clutch, rear main, ps pump rebuild, starter, radiator, alternator, wheel bearings repacked, f&r brakes, trunions /axle resealed and packed, all drivelines fluids changed, etc. A good base to work from.
No, there will be no body work on this rig (believe it!) except buffing some oxidized paint where there aren't dents (both sides - his kids took it out several times :rolleyes:). The focus will be on mechanically being in good working order and leaving the body as is.
Chk out the 6 point roll bar the PO installed :eek:
