Here is the consignor's notes:
The truck runs really well between 55-60 on the freeway. I would
not have bought it if it did not as I only live one mile from the
405 and am always on it or the 55 or 5. The rear end gears are
4.10. With the 29.1" diameter rear tires it is running 2600 rpm at
55 mph. The motor makes 95 horsepower at 3600 rpm and 175 ft-lb of
torque at 1600 rpm.
