- Spare Tire arm put on to remove the stress from the rear door.

- Runway Enduro 285/75R16 tires.

I have meticulous records of all of the work performed. All work has done by me personally. Truck was repainted while in the UK and chassis was cleaned up with a wire wheel and repainted. When I repainted the truck, I also took the opportunity to replace every seal in the body (door seals, vent flap seals, windshield seal, etc). I have pictures showing all of the work I have done.

There is one small area of rust on the chassis on the right side (driver’s side) near the outrigger. Picture makes it look worse than it really is. I took the picture really close up so you could really see the issue. Other than that, frame is in great condition.

Buyer will also receive all of the parts I have, as well. To name a few:

- Original 3.5 V8 (8.13:1 compression) with original heads (without rocker arms or valves), crank, pistons, timing cover and original intake with SU carbs.

- Starter with new solenoid

- Gasket sets (oil pan, timing cover, head gasket sets, inlet gasket, gearbox gaskets)

- Clutch Master and Slave Cylinders

- Tie Rod Ends (1 right and 1 left)

- Belts

- Vacuum actuator and switch for center lock differential

- Thermostat and gaskets

- Enough wheel bearing, seals and gaskets to do each wheel once

- New grill (without emblem) and radiator surround (unfinished)

- Original bumper and A-bar.

- Replacement Passenger footwell

- Door frame replacement pieces (some surface rust)

- Various other parts (wheel arch rivets, prop shaft bolts, trim pieces, etc.)

- Also have some extra paint (NATO Green)

Truck really looks and drives beautifully. It’s a real head turner when driving around town. Not sure if it is because of the ruggedness of the truck or the fact that people aren’t used to seeing a driver on the right side.

Happy to answer any questions and/or provide additional photos as requested.
