Owned since 1981; bought for $350 to be used as a "winter rat" back in Ohio college days. Turned out that it is one useful truck. PO bought it off the Clerk of Courts in Franklin County Ohio after it had been impounded when murder suspects wrecked it fleeing the police. I traded an Opel Manta for it that I had about $350 into. Over the years it became the go to tow vehicle but always looked too rough for my wife to ride in once we met and married. I did work mechanical refurbishment on my friends '64 Lincoln convertible in exchange for him having it straightened out and painted. Now she will ride in it especially to the lake while towing the old boat.

Paint and exterior

White with red interior & a white top

Upholstery and interior

Very worn drivers seat leather; otherwise quite acceptable.

Mileage

Bought in 1981 with 88K on it; I bet more than half of the miles on it since have happened while it was towing something......
