It has an aluminum tub & front fenders, which makes me wonder how rusty is the frame?
There is some sketchy wiring under hood.
It looks like a 77 2F engine, but has a 74 F air cleaner sitting on a weber carb.

This is less than 40 miles from my shop, LMK if you want a PPI report.

@flexis, If you are seriously interested in this truck you'd be nuts to not take advantage of Jim's offer to look it over for you.

Ive seen that truck listed. . . I could not figure out why the rear wheel openings were cut if the new aluminum tub/body was installed. Bigger wheels/tires in the past?
