The bad:
Gas gauge does not work. I’ve been doing about 300-miles a tank and filling up. This beast gets about 7-10 MPG, so it is not my daily driver. It has an electrical bug in there somewhere. It is not a huge deal (hasn’t caused a fire, stall, or any major damage). Worst thing is sometimes the radio will turn off, so you have to press the power button again.

The good:
Its very fun to drive! The only thing that can stop it is an empty fuel tank. This truck is from California, I am the third owner, the first two where father and son. I towed it out to CO a year ago and I’ve only been able to drive it once a week or so. It handles very well both on and off road. Very solid and dependable. I don’t have the time or money to keep it. I’m a college student now and I need to put my focus and money elsewhere. I have many small extras that will come with this thing as well. I hate to see it part, but I don’t use it enough and I figure someone else can enjoy it. There are a few more things that I haven’t listed, but I covered the most important details. I have paperwork from the 80’s tracking milage and services completed. Serious inquiries only please. Call/email/text to set up a showing.
