Loved by it's owner, this truck was his pride and joy, parking it in front of his Union76 service station, it got lots of local attention and survived multiple attempts to be purchase over the last4 decades.

Extremely straight exterior. No door sag, or hood bow. Outstanding bed interior walls, floor and tailgate. Excellent trim, deco, glass and chrome. Truck was repainted once, in it's original black to a very, very high standard (likely a decade old now, but holding up very well, misc. age related scratches here and there, but excellent shine with no issues anywhere).

Runs, drives, stops, steers and starts like a much newer truck. Very sound, solid, rattle freeexample. Travels down the freeway confidently with no freeway wander. Fast truck with lots of power as you would expect. Turnkey, daily driver example if you wanted to use it like that.

Excellent, veryoriginal interior. Only the seat andheadlinerhave been updated. Original carpets with very little wear other than age related fading speak to howgently this truck was used.Nice original mats included, but not pictured. Flawless crack free original dash having been covered with a dashmat forever. excellent deco, door panels, wood grain trim, original steering wheel, gauges, kick panels, etc. Everything works, including the dealer installed dual tanks and switch.
