considering buying this truck...advice

Guys- I've seen this 110 (kinda) on ebay twice. Considering it as a daily driver (no off roading). Any thoughts on this motor, the truck as a whole. I may look at it this weekend. Link below.

Thanks for the advice,
Mike

It looks nice enough but I would pass. Started life as a 1964 isn't something I would want when there are good early 80s defenders with no stories out there

I picked up one that claimed to be a '65 last month, and almost everything (or maybe everything) looks to be from an '84 or so, MOD. The pictures for your listing shows coil springs, and as founD90 (Jared) told me, if there's not much rust and you're not interested in authenticity, it couldn't hurt to take a look. Here's the link to the thread I started on the '65:

Thanks for the advice. I'd be interested to hear any other thoughts... especially in the context of a purchase price estimate of $20,000.
