Do you have pictures of when it was yours?

It's pretty rust free or was back then. One small area of rust right behind the transmission him that I sourced s donor replacement for. I don't remember if I fixed it or gave the piece to buyer. Either way it would be an easy fix. I trimmed the front and rear fenders because I was young a dumb and wanted room for 35s. Luckily those are easily replaceable. My brother put a brushed aluminum Dash in it. I wrapped it in orange digital camo. I thought it was cool back in the day. Brushed aluminum Dash cover could easily be removed and put back stock with some minor Dash repair to fix the holes to hold the cover. Wipers work, with correct switch. Heatercand heater fan worked when sold. I'm sure they still do. Vacuum actuated 4x4 worked when sold. Parking brake worked. Original Guage cluster was replaced with round gages. I don't remember if It went to buyer or not but it didn't work. Other than that I think most of the switches are correct for the period minus the hazards. Never found that one. I saw this again in person the other day. It fired right up. I rebuilt all 4 drums before I sold it. It's a good base for a restoration or just to drive as is. I would buy it back but I bought a 74 last week.

Thank you, that answers a lot of questions I was going to ask!
