MECHANICAL:The truck is powered by its original 235 cubic inch six cylinder in-line engine. Virtually everything under the hood was either replaced or overhauled. The transmission is a stock four speed with a "granny" low. The rear end. originally a 3. 90. was replaced with a 3. 38 ratio for better highway travel (about 2500 RPM at 60 MPH). Brakes have been completely overhauled. All receipts and records for work performed will be provided with the vehicle. Front wheel bearings were replaced with the "Timken" type for longer services.

A new windshield was installed when the original one developed a crack. The chassis is completely stock and rust free. INTERIOR:The interior is stock with the original paint in overall good condition showing some minor wear on the door frames near the window opening (adds a bit of "character").

All of the original gauges are fully functional. The original tube-type radio was overhauled and is in stalled. It worked before being disconnected to accommodate an antenna used with a CB radio. Door sills were replaced and the correct style new floor mats were installed with sound-deadening padding. EXHAUST:The photos show dual exhaust system. Until recently. it had a dual exhaust manifold. However. it developed a crack. so was replace with an original stock manifold. That is. only one pipe and muffler are functional. The second exhaust pipe and muffler are left in place in the event that a new owner wants again to install duals. If not. it's a simple matter to remove it.
