First time I have ever seen it. If he wants some eyes on from a fellow series owner, I would be happy to do it.

Neil that would be awesome. I'm going to give the owner a day or two more to respond but I'd be grateful if you could get out there and give it a good looking over, maybe even a test drive. Curious about the series 3 front end on a 1968 truck and condition of the frame and bulkhead and general leakiness. The obvious stuff. Also wondering what is up with the custom cubby and dash. .

I'll let you know asap if i'm going to take you up on the offer.


thanks
~Steve

That is not a 1968 it has all the features of a NAS Series III 1972 or later.

The post is gone. Was it a Black 109 with a bare metal roof?

It is kind of an odd one, from the door hinges and wing mirrors to what I think are II/IIA defrosters. Odd that it has 4" amber lights all around and the side reflectors though.

Regardless, looks like a clean truck.

'Clean' in Mass, and 'clean' in CA could be worlds apart when it comes to corrosion.
