Picked this up yesterday from Columbia, Tennessee, just southwest of Nashville.
From the bits I've read, this truck should be a 'Deluxe', since it has the radio and cig lighter, and not sure what else.
Had this thing start up and run for a few seconds pouring gas into the carb - the mechanical fuel pump is bad and I'll be wiring in a 1st gen 626 electric pump that my brother is giving me. I will then focus on everything necessary to get this back on the road, before doing body work, mainly the front end where which the sheet metal and bumper are properly effed up from the guy I bought it from not realizing that it has no brake fluid and thus inop brakes, as he rolled it down a hill into his storage space, ramming into a Ranger transmission before using the wall to stop it. :/ No frame damage but it's gonna be difficult to find parts for this thing. Eventually I want to do a fully restore but with my other projects and life, that's years away. Luckily with a little work I will have a useable 'survivor' truck.
So thrilled to have found it and been able to pick it up! I've never seen another for sale in the US, only one for sale in Japan on Goo-net.com (it's been on there forever).
Stay tuned for updates and I will also have lots of questions for you guys. lol
