a little more info & price drop...
I did some work on the auto column shifter plate so now it can't be easily knocked out of park into reverse or up to reverse from drive. Lever now functions as designed.
Also, came across some rust holes on backside of lower front right cab corner. I'd estimate a patch plate/panel for repair- nothing major as cab corner replacement.
Price down to $7400. Thank you.

Truth stranger than fiction...
This seems surreal to me, but I attest it's the truth. A few days ago, I got an email noting this same vehicle on was on ebay.
I did not put it on ebay.
I have had this vehicle only on this FTE sale site and on Craigslist Tucson & Phx.
A fraudulent ebay member lifted my pics & most of my verbiage & ran my truck on an ebay auction. I do not know this person or have I given any other person permission to offer or sell my vehicle.
Please contact me if anyone wants to see/drive the truck & we'll arrange it.
If we make a cash deal my request for final transaction is at Benson, AZ bank.
Or I would consider a $500. USPS money order (down/hold/payment) sent in one or two day priority letter, along with a cashier's/bank check, for the balance. There would be a seven day wait period for clearing, after I deposit it. Then you or your agent & I will meet at bank, etc.
My sincere thanks to all for their interest & emails re this vehicle.
I did edit this post to remove my verboseness. I apologize.
My regards,

Just to make sure...
As some may know, looking at the unauthorized ebay listing of my copied ad, that auction ended with three vying bidders and final amount of $7900. There was an unmet reserve price and hopefully none of the bidders are still trying to deal with this fraudulent lister. That listing did not have a vehicle ID #.
I want to reiterate this vehicle is mine, in my garage and the title is clean, clear, under no contest or dispute. It been clear/clean under the ownership of the last two previous owners and this goes back into the '80's. No disputes or contests. No construction, salvage or state issued #s involved. Just the number Henry gave it in '56, which is unmolestedly displayed on door opening factory tag/plate and stamped on top of front, right frame member.
Thank you... John
