    Default Super SIIa SWB

    Hello All, (note: I just posted on the thread, but have gone back and edited the price to CAD)

    After 15-years of blood, sweat and gears it is time for Growler II to find a new home. What you cannot see in the pictures is the engine was rebuilt 11-years ago with the 9:1 ported head, performance cam and bigger exhaust. A Sniper EFI was added two summers ago. Not more than 10,000 miles on rebuild, as it has never left the province and is only used for fishing trips. Comes with a 5 x 10' trailer, also in very good shape. Growler seems to get about 25mpg, even at 70+mph. It all runs great, everything works, will do 80mph no problem. Would likely make the drive to just about anywhere if you want to drive it home.

    A general history of the vehicle:
    Purchased in approx. 2008. PO bought it for his wife around 2000 from somewhere on Vancouver Island, and she was promptly hit hard on the front quarter. He took the insurance money, stripped it down, and put a new galvanized frame on it (which he also undercoated). He went through it, fixed everything mechanically and rewired everything, adding a period clock and tach. He did a kind-of crappy body and paint-job on the outside (NICE on inside), but the truck was in darn good shape except for the engine. Still difficult to find a square inch of rust on the frame anywhere.

    A ton of painstaking work (and money) has gone into fixing, maintaining and improving Growler over the years, always going the extra mile. If interested in more information or pictures, a written more-or-less full description of the vehicle is available. If there is something else you think should be posted here, let me know. I have so many pictures it is difficult to know where to stop.

    I am in no rush to sell, and am asking $CAN27,500 for Growler (with the trailer).
