This is my project vehicle that has only gotten halfway done. I have invested around 7k (not including all the hours of labor) in this truck and was planning on restoring it. However it has taken me two months to strip half the vehicle of its military green paint and I have realized that I do not have the sufficient time or energy to see the project through. Several people that drive by have asked if I'm selling it, so I thought I would put it on craigslist to see if anyone out there is interested in it. This is an awesome classic truck, rare in the US! It was imported from england by the previous owner, 23,000 original miles, it has a 4 cyl perkins 3L diesel engine, 4 speed manual transmission, fairey Overdrive, solid chassis, RHD, 5 door, seating for 12, all glass intact. The truck was used for farm purposes for the last year and a half and has performed wonderfully. Teh engine would The powerful perkins diesel would crank up the first time every time. The body is made from aluminum, so no corrosion there; yet the doorposts (t-trames) and footwells do require welding. This is an excellent vehicle for biodiesel or veggiefuel (my original plan.) However, since I've decided to restore, it has been sitting for the last two months. This is your chance to own a one of a kind vehicle with an unmatched 4x4 look. Many extras including, knobs, set of wheels, manuals for the engine and for the restoration. *I also have a discovery i was going to source for parts if you are interested in upgrading the axles to disk brakes with the same bolt pattern that will be included in the sale if it does not sell in a separate listing first.
Serious buyers only. NC title in hand. I hate to part with this truck since I've invested so much time, money and energy into it; my loss is your gain. I can provide pictures if requested.
