Awesome pictures! I always wondered about how intricate the cage was. Does it tie into the roof rack at all? I read somewhere that the rack tied into the cage for weight carrying or something like that. Looks like that cage really saved it. I didnt notice the front windscreen being a giant sheet of plexi. Body looks exceptionally rough.

I would fix it only as much as required to make it water tight. I would leave the dented panels and just pull it out enough to fit glass.

100% agree. Pretty much perfect as is.

The roof rack bolt goes through the roof on the bars, looks like. Yeah, the guy said he couldn't fit a new windshield due to damage...I simply think he didn't want to buy one.....but I think there is someone nearby who could whip up a custom cut glass if it is that bad off. Maybe some of that non DOT Lexan race car glass. The passenger side is rough, mainly that rear quarter. But all the doors shut and open great. The back panel is in pretty bad shape, but the frame seems ok.

Wow awesome truck while at the same time a serious POS! You are both lucky and cursed.
Looking forward to the restoration. Maybe you can find a Camel Trophy Patron to help fund the rebuild.

Sell it as is for a small profit, Mr. Winky!

You don't need/want the headache this truck is going to be for the next several months or years. This is going to be a money pit and even after you fix a few things, there's no guarantee you'll get your money back.

Keep it as original as possible.
Having ridden in that truck have this strange emotional parental style need to protect.

I've been cursed for years, at finding rare/low mileage cars in the woods/desert, this being one of the rarest. . Unfortunately, if someone is paying to get it repaired, I have a feeling they would want to own it, yah know?

I'd bet you would want me to. Making it water tight, checking fluids/changing, and airing up the tires is all I have left. That might just break the bank, wouldn't you say? LOL. I'm pretty positive, I will not lose money. Feel free to make me an offer, also, feel free to have that offer shot down if it is a small profit offer. Simply, "Ain't nobody got time for that".

I'm way ahead of you guys. Trying to find a donor disocvery nearby with some glass in it. The back side window panel is almost flat enough for me to put some glass back in. The front I won't touch until I have a replacement windshield ready to go. Simply because the plexiglass is sealed up.

Once you're done, is your plan to throw it on eBay with a minimum bid of $3k and no reserve and letting the market determine its worth?

What a find! It's so authentic! I agree though, leave it cosmetically rough

Credit is given, though this isn't my first rodeo.

I've been offered much higher than that, so no reason to gamble. I already took a gamble to go get it and won. I have no reason to prove myself until it is being sold. If you want to make an offer, make it. Like I said, ain't my first rodeo, fella.

So, this is going to be something to be flipped then? Please sell it to someone who will do what needs to be done.


What would it do to value to get a solid D1 donor, gut it, and transplant all the CT stuff, decals (reproduced) and all? It looks rough and rather than just creating another band aid Lexan sheet why not actually do what needs to be done to make a real windscreen fit?

You misunderstood me finding a donor car. I mean one for some parts.... Aka glass......I found some discovery glass and if I can get it cheap enough, I will try to have it fitted. I have no idea if it will fit or not....because this was word of mouth. I dunno if the man just cheaped out and plexiglassed it, instead of fixing the windshield and just gave an excuse. I will update when I remove plexiglass. As of right now, it is watertight up front.

It will go to the right owner when I deem it road worthy. Aka, parts are in route.

Possibly, I'm not going to give it away. If you are looking for a cheap discovery, I have a feeling this is not the one. But, I can help you find one, if you don't want this one.

Wow.......Well, since I presume you are a grown man that I am speaking to, buck up and deal with it. And please don't direct your anger towards me, guide them to the forum owner /Mod who allowed emoticons to be used in the first place. I'm not breaking any rules. But, You can call me mr winky, if you like. I approve of it. Have a wonderful evening!
