The time must have ran out on both of them try this link he had two not long ago one I think sold one the other was just running, also the nice blue one will probably air again he ran it twice and I don't think he got any reasonable offers email@example.com
I do have my 44 on CL right now. How much is your friend looking to spend? I am still kicking around the idea of selling it or keeping it. If the right offer were made I would probably sell, but I have been seriously thinking of keeping it. I can tell you right now I won't give it away.
I saw a yellow one on Ebay this morning for $7500 in NZ with delivery?!! I can tell you right now I wouldn't sell mine for that cheap!!
I've actually done some thinking today and have decided to pull it off the market. I have to admit, the rarity of the cruiser coupled with not owing anything on it right along with the fact it has never left me stranded has made me realize I should keep it. Tell your friend good luck on his hunt for me.
your 43 is super cool and rod knows it but he's got his mind set on a 44 or 46. the 46 in the pic above is an 84 with the 3B, h55f, split case, discs, factory ps, factory air,........you name it. and on top of all that it's got the jdm fold and tumble rear bench.
i spent almost 3 hours going over the rigs with a fine toothed comb as well as driving them. there's no rust under the diamond plate below the door jamb. there is some mild rust along the bottom of the ddors and in the rear sill area. we all know what to look for.........but besides that the rigs are solid. no rust in the floors or along the seem where the floor meets the side of the body.
Both rigs have ome springs under them as far as i could tell. no shackle reversals. they do ride and handle fairly well.
