Mechanical upgrades include, an aftermarket aluminum radiator, rebuilt 2f motor it is not the original motor but, period correct for the vehicle. The motor is a stock rebuild by an experienced machinist. The rebuild was stock except for the bumped-up cam shaft.

The vehicle has an ARB bumper with PIAA dual mode lights. A Warn 8000 winch was installed and is in excellent like new condition.

I welcome and encourage you to conduct an independent inspection of the vehicle prior to purchase. I do my best to provide you with information, videos and photos however, I do not presume to be able to discern every individual expectations. Feel free to come and look for yourself, or send your mechanic, appraiser, wife, priest, baby’s mama-cause I don’t want no drama – I want you to be comfortable with your purchase and love your classic vehicle! Just be advised your inspection needs to be completed prior to the completion of the auction or purchase of the vehicle because once you purchase or win auction it is contractually owned by you. Also, note that any inspection needs to take place at my property due to insurance restrictions. Please contact me in advance to arrange inspection. Thanks.
I have an excellent shipping broker that I can put you in contact with. Shipping quotes from broker for buyer only, I cannot overwhelm my broker with every possible shipping inquiry as I get several a day and he would break-up with me! Ebay has a shipping tool that can give you a ballpark shipping quote. Also, I receive no compensation or commission related to the shipping broker, just found a reliable option. Vehicle or title does not leave my property until full payment is received.
