The time has come, there are some other trucks I'd like to pursue but I need the cash in hand to do that.

In the last year I have done:

New brakes all around
Rebuilt all the wheel cylinders
Replaced the broken cam adjusters
New hard brake lines in the front
New master cylinder
New battery
rebuilt the carb the proper way (Zenith)
New plugs, wires, points, cap, rotor etc...
Welded in a new rear crossmember
New shocks
New exhaust
New output shaft seal
Extended breathers on axles and tc
New outer bearings in rear
New hub seals on all four corners
Resealed the transmission shifter forks with Heater Hose, now they don't leak a drop.
Installed a block heater to replace a leaky freeze plug.
Has the oil filter adapter to accept a modern filter

Current Problems:
1. It will pop out of first gear.
2. The windshield wiper motor squeals when used, but does work. The motor probably needs rebuilt, but I don't drive enough in the wet to need it.
3. Sometimes the starter will not engage (I guess that is what is happening) you can hear it spinning but doesn't do anything to start. I never bothered b/c 2 or 3 turns of the key usually makes it work. Seems more pronounced when its cold outside.

The frame is in good shape, it has obvious patching but has lots of years left in it now that the rear crossmember was replaced.

I'm selling as a hardtop but will entertain offers as a pick-up. I prefer not to sell the PU cab as I want that for future projects. The price is $5500 obo.
