WOW! That's a beaut! Not within my budget, but Abe should add it to his fleet. A perfect match. Guessing the interior is just as nice.

Nice truck but no thanks! About $20,000 over my budget! And to be in my fleet it needs to be a 53 to 56....

Wow, that is nice! Very detailed and correct-looking with maybe just a hint of dress up under the hood, but I'm not the AACA judge here. I'd take it, although as with the others, it's a bit north of my budget, as well. Don't know if you could recreate if for the asking price, tho. I will say finding a pair of correct, YOM Washington truck license plates like this one has, in that condition, is a rare find in itself. These were originally issued from Douglas County

I agree with all the comments. Budget aside though one would be hard pressed to "re-build" a truck like that and do it for less. If it is as good as the pictures show, It is worth the asking price IMHOP.

agreed, if only it was located in the SE. Seems like all the decent priced trucks are in NW area, everything down here is priced ridiculous.

Oh, it would be simple to get it to the SE. In fact, I'll be going to Spokane next weekend, and would be happy to keep it at my place for you until you can have a truck pick it up. Or if you'd rather to fly out and drive it home, we can do that too.

I think they call that an enabler. lol.

You've obviously never tried to buy a Jeep in Washington, then.

You can blame all the crossfit hipsters for that.

3twin is on the nose. People down here think just because it is old means it is rare. Then they tack on a rarity tax, and I swear they charge more when it doesn't have a title...

Nothing is any different, or cheaper, here in the lovely NW.

Why go thru all that trouble making it a stock appearing truck ( it is a beautiful truck ) and not make it just that . Never dual exhaust , incorrect hose clamps , engine dress up items never offered , FORD on tail gate never painted ivory , and wish I could see more pics of truck .Like the level door handles , wiper delete and wheel trim . Better put a hold down on the battery .

Yikes, i'll be afraid to post pictures of mine when it's done.
j/k but sersiously, Some things i just can't find right now so i'm going to improvise a little just to get it done. Then I can hit the shows and looks for the rare missing items.
