Wonderful truck to drive everyday


This truck was bought new by my grandfather and given to me after he passed away.

Everything is original except tires.

The only problems have been the power brake booster and the carb had to be rebuilt.

General Comments:

This is a great truck.

On the highway you just have to hit the cruise control and it practically drives itself.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
