Its been on craigslist for 12 days, ample time for someone to make a move...I spoke to owner. Not sure if he knew what he had.

I've emailed that guy 3 times and called him twice. Zero responses. I don't think he actually wants to sell it. -- I got his # from Matt. -- Matt how did you get a hold of him??

I saw that 90 when I lived on Oahu, from what I recall it looked a little rough.

It's long gone sold, so no point in contacting the seller. New owner will post up soon.

Agree. What I was saying is that over the course of the ad I contacted him that many times. I actually first emailed the day the ad went up, probably within 6 hours of it posting and never heard back from him.

I spoke to him day after ad went up, he sent me his cell # via email. I had a wild idea of buying it and flipping or having two. Seller didn't act like he knew the demand, or anything about it much. He had to go down to the 90 to check which way the tranny shifted to tell me if it was lt77 or 380.
Seemed like a good deal but from pics he sent me it had some salt water corrosion. Had a new tranny/gearbox too, said he paid some transmission shop 7k to put it in, ouch.

I hear the prior owner snagged it, good for him, nice to see someone get their 90 back after searching.

Credit to the seller for keeping his word to the buyer.

The guy clearly had no idea what he had...after saying "first one with cash gets it" proceeds to tell me he wouldn't take my money because he was waiting for someone else to put together the funds.

The photos of the truck looked OK, still a good deal for the money.

Sometimes it's better to give than to receive. I'm just glad Jeremy got his truck back, even with all of the vultures circling!

it makes me laugh that people are so paranoid about LT77's when R380's are also a bag of bolts ... lets be honest ... if an LT77 has made it from 1994 to 2013 without dying, it's probably not going to explode as soon as you drive the truck.

My reason for asking was he said some repair shop put in a new tranny/gearbox. From the pics he sent the bolts were way too long on the bottom. That's why I asked.
