I purchased this from a local seller in Ventura County. He said that it was formerly a ranch truck from Atascadero, here it had operated since it was originally purchased. It had been sitting in a scrap yard after she left the ranch. The prior Owner loved this truck and carefully prepared it for restoration, fter be trailered it from the scrap yard to his workshop. It is very clean, nd all of the parts which haven't been installed yet are boxed and come with the purchase. At the time, really felt that I could handle the project, ut I have decided that, ven if I were to restore it, y lifestyle isn't suited to operating and maintaining a vintage vehicle, nd so I would like to sell this beautiful truck to someone who will retain her original character in a restoration. Clear coating the patina would be a lovely option, think.

This truck is partially registered, nd just needs to be weighed and trailered down to the DMV for new plates. I paid for the registration already.

Here are some of the marketing points from the prior Seller's brochure:
