I purchased it in 2014 and maintained it regularly since. Recent inspection report attached.
No accidents. No rust. No smoking.
Drives great super quick off the line (relatively speaking), sounds great, looks great, always a conversation starter.
I'm the second BC owner. Selling it because I no longer have the space or time to maintain it to the extent I want to.
Truck is honestly and truly perfect and ready to go on adventure. My teen daughter is most upset that I'm selling.

What's wrong:
Typical small leaks/weeps from a 30 year old truck. It doesn't lose any fluids in quantities sufficient to require refilling. Oil level doesn't change between fills. Doesnt leave any marks on the ground after being parked. Both noted on inspection report (Attached)
Parking brake requires adjustment (shoes are good).
Front wipers high speed position has never worked, possibly needs switch cleaning.
Ding in the front windshield, about 1/2" in diameter.
Antenna snapped and missing
