1997 ST AA yellow #1275

Anyone familiar with this particular truck. Ran a car fax and it looks clean. Wanted to know if anyone has seen any info on here. Any details would be great. Thanks

When diamond plating comes off how much damage are we looking at to get to original?

There will be some holes in the body from the 5 bar "diamond' plating. It looks like it comes with all of the extra stuff like a fiberglass hard top, rear cage, bench, full soft top, etc. which is good, but the price is insane. I'd have to disagree with the seller that this "rare 2 door sport utility ... will do nothing but go up in value" if you intend to buy it at that price and drive it at all, but otherwise it looks like a pretty nice truck. The photos aren't really all that descriptive of the typical problem areas, but assuming they look as good as the rest (which you should never do) then it looks pretty good.

Thanks RJ. Won't pay that price 57 very steep.

I saw 62 on their site. Eek! Plus it doesn't have A/C.

Nope. Was an option even in 97.

Thanks for the info. I thought for some reason I read on east coast that it was standard.

Daddy mow. Thanks for the offer! I am actually pulling the trigger on the 97. Getting it for far less than 57. The 94 on eBay looks like a nice truck. I needed automatic trans for the wife. That was the deal.

How hard are replacement bolts for the fiberglass top? Sounds like it is missing some. ThNks again for all the help.
