We are starting to get the trucks rolling out of the UK shop on a regular basis and we now have this 1984; just arrive today.
We bought this as a very decent truck. Truth was it is better than we thought.
This is 100% original when we got it. We had to really think about the respray but in the end it was decided to spiff it up a bit.
We did most of the work at the UK shop. We will do the final details here.
There was minor surface rust in a few spots and normal aluminum oxidization but none of it was bad. We did a full rebuild on each door. They were more or less rust free to start with and they are fully rust free now.
Truck is 100%...drives like a dream. If you want a 110 to turn into a 2014 PUMA look a like this is NOT the one to start with

Yep, stripes are funky on 2nd row doors..... don't get me started on the "pub lunch" issue. We will apply new stripes first of the week.
I want to work on the headliner a bit. If I can get it so that we are OK with it then so be it. If not we will install new.
We have an AC kit (thanks Seth!) which can be installed at additional cost.
And a pile of more stuff I forgot.....
It is a 100% straight truck. We have full documentation. Truck is in my name ion the UK V5 and will be swapped to US title prior to delivery.
Currently at the Atlanta shop.
We offer a 30 day stem to stern warrantee. 180 day full mechanical warrantee.
$29,500 picked up in Atlanta, title provided.
We can do just about anything additional you might want but honestly there is not much to do. Maybe a center console, has a decent stereo already, maybe 12v outlet and such.... just get in and drive
