Its not done though.

It needs:

  • Headliner
  • Carpet kit installed (I have it)
  • Cargo bed wood and vinyl installed

The bad (?):

Its a nice solid car.


If I must find a complaint; a prior owner did floor pans. Laid in from top side. Very solid but you can see when its on the lift that they were laid in and sit slightly above existing floor. For perfect it would need a new one piece pan. For good its fine. I saw this after I was well along on this project.

I am currently installing two rear brace ends and fabricating two small rocker patches.

The car is on the lift and I am cleaning up the underneath. Shortly I will seal any gaps, and apply POR15 with Eastwood flexible undercoating on top.


I added a pic of the door jams. A prior owner filled them and painted them for a custom look. It didnt bother me but you need to be aware if you buy it.

More pics available upon request. I just need to take them. These are what I have in my computer files.


The pic(s) without the tailgate and liftgate were before I buttoned up the back end. Bumpers are installed also.


No trades. My receipts are +$45k.


******* I lowered the Buy it Now price on this because I want to make sure whoever buys it is happy with it. I am not making anything nor need the space. Sometimes I think about trying to finish but if its gone to the next owner I wont be tempted.


Please ask questions. If you buy it, you should be excited about it.
