Not true,Centurion is a conversion company that does more than just 4 door broncos they also do Vans and customized Pickups .They are most known for their custom Duallies.

lol... ohh I thought you were saying it had changed hands. When I was into imports there was a nissan with a chevy Lt1 in it that was on ebay like 5 times in a year, all from different sellers.
Every ad said "great car just a few teething issues needs worked" etc...
lol
I wouldn't have touched it with a 10 ft pole.

As pointed out centurions are not dealer done trucks - separate company. Just like "magnum" which was another company that did the 4 door conversions on broncos.

As for "just as much bondo as metal" - if you'r thinking that you've never stripped a centurion or magnum. Lots of them came from the conversion companies as bondo buckets

well thats nice to know. i was looking at one awhile back, glad i passed it up. it was an early conversion and was already getting rusty, i hate bondo and i am in no way what some one would call a body man. nothing worse than finding out your metal panels are plastic

He must be ashamed to show the joints where it was cut and put together. I can only imagine the "quality" ingenutiy he could have used. He liked the torch in a few other places, so hmmm???

Lots of them are rusting along the cut/splice line. It's very common.

I'd imagine so. the bodies were dip galvanized. really no way to regalvanize it once it has been welded.
