    3rd known owner, been an Arkansas truck for it's entire life as far as I know.

    Daily driver but used mostly as a glorified "side by side" on our creek front property in Arkansas. Makes trips from Mt. View, AR to MEM on a regular basis.

    Locking hubs and 4 wheel drive (hi and lo) work perfectly

    Comes w/ spare wheel and aluminum tool box for the bed (see pics)

    Truck starts, idles, accelerates and stops as it should. No issues.

    Original paint is in good condition with some bubble spots here and there.

    Original decals are in great shape

    Interior is all original w/ usual crack in the dash

    Factory accessory running boards, mud flaps and rear bumper. Factory jack and spare tire storage work and included.

    Since I've owned it:
    New refurb'd stock carb from Carb X
    Added starter relay to eliminate hot start issue
    A/C updated and recharged
    New main fuel pump
    Replaced all dash lights/bulbs
    New shift leather and housing
    Checked frame and bed for rust/all good and coated under carriage w/ Coroseal to keep rust away
    Replaced seals in steering knuckles (front wheels)
    New slave cylinder for clutch
    All fluids and maintenance is current

    Previous owner's work in 2016 (no documentation)
    New radiator
    Clutch
    Tires
    Freeze Plug

    What does NOT work:
    AM/FM radio-bad or corroded connections. It sort of works
    Cruise Control-NON OP
    Cigarette Lighter

    Of Note:
    Tape deck "works" with some fiddiling
    There is a slight front end wobble around 35 mph that disappears at 45 mph.

    I'm interested and have a few questions.

    Is the truck in Mountain View?

    Is the bed 6 ft?

    Have you checked the tire balance to see with the vibration is related to tires?

    Any idea what is wrong with the cruise control?

    When was the timing chain last done?

    Thanks.

    YEP

    YEP

    YEP

    NOPE. Either vacuum or control unit is faulty, I'd presume

    When was the timing chain last done?
    No record but given current mileage, state of the engine (sounds good and performs good) and a visual inspection a few years ago, it seems to have been replaced at some point.

    Plenty of calls and interest in this truck, but no buyers yet.
    Will consider offers.
