Fs 76 S3 Rhd
Looks like I just bought Marks D110 and I need to fund the improvements, picking up where he left off I want to install an auto trans and 4.2 or 4.6 power plant.
So if anyone wants a strong running S3 you can just get in and go this is your truck. She's not perfect but she's fully functional and is a great driver. Frame is solid, bulkhead needs some work but plenty of life left. This is Galens old truck if anyone knows it. Well cared for. I picked it up from him last year and the only thing I've done to it is drive it. Pics attached. I'll send more on request. Looking for a quick sale so lets make a deal. $4kobo sound right? I paid $5k

1. It will pop out of first gear. engages fine but I have to hold it in, I usually start in 2nd anyway especially when in low range
2. The windshield wiper motor squeals when used, but does work. The motor probably needs rebuilt, but I don't drive enough in the wet to need it.
3. Sometimes the starter will not engage (I guess that is what is happening) you can hear it spinning but doesn't do anything to start. I never bothered b/c 2 or 3 turns of the key usually makes it work. Seems more pronounced when its cold outside.
The frame is in good shape, it has obvious patching but has lots of years left in it now that the rear crossmember was replaced.
