Tickler: 1958 Series I 107 Station Wagon

Okay, let's not get in to the politics or reasons behind the sale....

Yes, I purchased the truck in June 2011 and since then circumstances have changed.

Up for consideration is my 1958 Series I 107 Station Wagon. Imported from Argentina in 2001 by the first US owner, I am the second US owner. This is an original LHD export vehicle. The truck received a partial restoration in Argentina prior to coming to the US.

Since purchashing the truck, I have corrected many of the inaccuracies and fixed the issues:
1. New Series I tranny installed, nice and tight, shifts smooth
2. Replaced all four leaf springs, truck now sits level
3. Corrected the dash, with correct gauges, switches, and lights
4. Installed the correct turn signal switch and horn bracket/switch
5. Installed a super rare Koenig crank driven winch with in cab controls
6. Repaired and replaced all the turn signals and brake lights. While not period correct, they are new
7. Installed a Smiths round heater and demisters.
8. Installed an NOS rear fold down step
9. Installed tons of little, correct parts like door grab handles, rear lift handles, grill badge, mirrors, etc
10. Rebuilt and tuned the carb, now runs like a champ
11. Replaced worn driveshaft U joints
12. Installed custom sliders and fuel tank skid
13. Installed Michelin XZLs on Wolf rims (correct rims come with the truck)
14. Replaced the rear crossmember

What else I know about the truck:
1. The 2.0L motor was rebuilt under the care of the first US owner
2. Complete brake system overhaul

The truck needs nothing to start enjoying immediately. My goal in the past 6 months was putting the truck back to original in preparation for a frame off restoration. It's nearly there. I'd say the truck is now about 95% complete. As most of you know, these are extremely rare trucks, especially in LHD. Only one other 107 SW has come up for sale in the past 3 years.

I am only asking what I have in the truck: $23k firm.

Pics forthcoming as soon as the weather clears up, but my build thread is in the projects section.

I'd also consider trades for a thrashed NAS D90.

Of course. It would be a trade plus cash. I'm looking for a $15k NAS D90.

Yes, the top comes off, the doors tops come off, and the windshield folds down.
