Doesn't this seem pretty reasonable?: http://tinyurl.com/yecjm2f

P.S. I have nothing to do with this listing.

If it was not the truck 4 speed, I'd hit the BIN for a flip. I've received close to 8K for similar trucks.

Yes, VERY reasonable! The key to it is the phrase "MUST be sold" with the capital 'MUST':(

Interior's not patriotic enough for me. ;) No stars.
Seriously, that's a pretty good BIN. [^]

That truck looks like it would be worth the money if its solid. The strange mix of colors could be sorted out fairly easily.

It's "good", but with the one to one 4th gear and the truck rear ratio, 60 MPH is about top cruising speed.

Put some 16" wheels and tall tires on this unit and you'd get a couple more mph at the top end... [}:)];)

Looks pretty good for the $$'s, would like to have seen some pics of the dash and the underside. [8)]

Thanks Bob.
Yours sounds like a good rig.I have a right drive 49 C cab short bed with the dreaded Chev 350 in it.Not original I know,but it gets going real well.
I was wondering about the cruising range for this truck.
