This truck features a new front clip, including inner and outer fenders and hood, new front and rear glass, new front and rear bumpers, bed chrome, and headlamp bezels, and new rubber weather-stripping all around. It has also has a high quality professional repaint that has a beautiful luster. A new interior completes the package.
A few items of note are that there are a few superficial cracks in the dash pad. In addition, there is a crack present in the steering wheel. Although the truck was originally equipped with air conditioning, it is not currently installed, nor is its heating system. Heating system components will be included with sale and can be reinstalled by the next owner if desired. In addition, the air conditioning pump and hoses will also be provided with sale.
Originally a California truck, the most recent owner purchased it in 2005 and undertook its mechanical and cosmetic restoration that was completed in 2007. Meticulously cared for and driven only about 3,000 miles in the summers, it looks as good today as the day its restoration was completed.
