Nas trucks are the exception to the rule. You see it anywhere you post it.

As a follow up to this post. Yes, I was right. New acquisition here in town.
Turns out the owner is a friend of mine and was going to surprise me with the news!
Got a close look at it today and drove it.
Wow! One of the nicest I've see in a long time!
I'll let the new owner tell the story and provenance, but a really really nice NAS example here

More of the same....
I couldn't find a single think to pick apart, even underneath. All original, unrestored. A real treat to see.
Strangely, it has 30mm hub centric spacers even though it shouldn't NEED them? Wonder if the previous owner wanted a wider stance?

Not a single thing? How about the retarded lights?

My point was it isn't all original. I have zero issue with nas lights. Even euro trucks use them for reverse and fog.

Okay, not as it left the factory, but crazy clean where it counts (underneath)

Wonder why it has those lights. Maybe new rear from an accident?

As for spacers, the tires look huge. They probably were rubbing on full lock and this was the easy fix

That's the first thing I noticed (tires) but they are 265/75, so idk
The stance does look wider but the tires don't stick out beyond the spats rather they are flush with the edge. Does the stock track sit inside the spats a bit?

I don't understand that and the old school lights, but I agree they (lights) look out of place. Good candidate for LED plinths/lights.
It could be because the truck actually made its way to France for a few years (maybe they are required to run certain Euro lights?) I have no idea, but when I was underneath there was no evidence of any repairs or rust. Stock everything, never been waxoyled.

Regardless of nitpicking, it's an extremely nice example that I'd be happy to call my own I a heartbeat! I love a 90 in Arles!

Weird the spacers made the tires look big.

In any case the guy should ditch them
