· This is not the original engine or transmission for this vehicle. They were installed sometime in the past by a previous owner.

Mileage: Unknown, Odometer states 169,379. Odometer has not worked since I purchased the vehicle.

Has Factory A/C: Does not work at this time.

Has fiberglass camper shell

The truck runs good but needs new front struts and tires. The tires are cupped due to the bad struts. It has some body rust under the driver’s seat, in the bed and at the bottom of the rear window. Rebuilt injectors have been installed in the engine. I bought this truck as a project with the intent to restore it. I started purchasing parts but other things kept creeping up so I never got around to starting this project. The truck comes with the following NEW parts ready to be installed.
