I've spent several years working on this project and unfortunately I just don't have the time to complete it so I want to see it go to someone who will finish it and enjoy it. I believe the truck to be complete and all the parts I have for it will go with the truck. I do not have a registration for this truck, it was originally a water tanker for a local fire department and was never registered. This vehicle does not have a New York State Title as it was manufactured prior to 1972. I will provide a signed bill of sale to the buyer. This is just a cab and chassis and I do not have a body for the truck. I do have the other set of wheels and tires for the rear. This vehicle is sold as is and no warranty is included. This would make for a great parade vehicle or car hauler just needs some time to complete it.
