You could set my truck on fire and roll it down a hill, and I still wouldn't trade it for a CpDvile
I just bought this truck, and I call him BRUTUS! He's tough! LOL, but I bought him for $800.00, and a manual choke was installed.
The breather was detached, and needed new plugs and wires.
The A.C. belt was missing, and other belts squeak bad at start up.
He stalls on a downshift too; I think it's the breather / vacuum or carb.?
There's a drop of oil every 10 minutes.
Brake line rotted.
He back fires out of first and second gear. Maybe distributor or timing?
Surface rust mostly, but bad at the rear wheel wells and in the side door rocker panel corners.
I will update ASAP.
I'm about to give a ton of TLC and a good chunk of money to invest in another 141k miles!
He's got that granny low, and will pull a double wide trailer! I popped the hood and I saw that straight 6... Had to have it, they outlast the vehicles they come with, plus the torque. I believe that's why they stopped making them; a conspiracy of the car companies buying out all the patents for fuel efficient and effective engines decades ago, and letting them out as if they were a new thing when the competition catches up... or the government steps in.
Either way, Brutus shall live on as long as I do. Preventative maintenance and good driving habits keep vehicles on the road. Take care of your truck, and it will take care of you!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
