Not a bad deal for $9k. Josh knows NAS, less of a savant with ROW.

Needs some paint, and perhaps remove the boat teak from the dash and shift knobs. Put some proper tires and you're in business.

Looks like a disco 200tdi to me. No frame pics and those SEATS!!!!!

EEK.

OTOH it looks like a legit 84 not a reVIN.

As they say in the porsche community, which I think applies to imported D90s, they are all 20k vehicles. Pay now or pay later making them nice.

It was listed a few months ago and the owner pretty much pulled the listing. He stated not to bid on it...that "it needed a small but vital repair". It didnt state what the repair was. You may want to bring this up to the owner.

Well keeping it till he sells it. He's a car dealer (thus the Rooney Motors Ad). Its a solid truck. He built his jeep up instead of this, mainly bc parts are 100 times cheaper i believe and readily available. He'll be at the summer pines event next weekend if anyone whos interested in the truck will be there. Bu
