They're pretty easy to fix up. You put in earplugs and that's that. No deafening noise from the truck and none from people swearing and honking at you.

Hey Mike - Saw that you had posted this yesterday and was immediately interested. I get such a kick seeing all the different body styles of LR. I think I actually sat in one of these in SA, Tx. It was very different sitting so far forwards. Cool little tank you have there and I can't wait to see you bring her back to life. Post lots of pictures!

Thanks, that's the plan!
I've always been a fan of the old European military fc's. We rebuilt an old volvo c303 for my father years ago. He kicks himself to this day for selling it. They're interesting. There's a lot of wow factor and peoples heads turning. As an enthusiast for odd trucks I just couldn't pass it up

I'm the same way. When you like something..you just do. I like the different and the old school, don't make them like they use to types. Some of my favorite memories of being a kid was helping my dad do his restores. Harleys, VWs, Dodge Chargers were what he liked...even our bikes were custom. I had suicide handle bars, a banana seat and aqua blue fleck paint

One FC I'd love to see up close is a Pinz.

Portals, center tube driveshaft and Air cooled. Love the simplicity of air cooled engines in a Pinz.

The volvo was the same way. Vacuum front and rear axle lockers, portals, removable everything, fun truck to drive. All the odd looks. Only did 55mph tho.
