Not sure if he's carrying two spares!! I have fenders and a core support to replace some day, but I'll just drive it for a while for now. In fact it would make a great truck.

In Australia and New Zealand it is sold as the Holden Barina. Archived from on 24 January 2013. Also watch for rust at the seam where the roof meets the rr window panel.
Also I put 3 point retractable seat belts in it. Fleetside beds during those years were in three lengths. I haven't done anything to the body and it has the afore mentioned roof rail, firewall and floor rust. As with my truck in my sig, it has a leaf spring rear end. Archived from on 5 May 2016. Both are a deal breaker unless you are really ambitious.
Prices are way down right now, if the seller really wants to get rid of it he has to sell it cheap. I'm rather indifferent to the bed length though I do like the fleetsides better and the wife demands an automatic. The seat won't go back far enough to give some leg room and the steering wheel is about 1. My plan is to add 6inches to the length of the cab through the middle of the doors, and lengthen the frame and drive shaft. The only thing I don't like about it is if you have long legs I don't or a beer belly I do , the cab is really short.
It is 5 lug on the front now, but he was buying new wheels anyway. He added a power disc brake conversion from manual drum , and also power steering, as his arms are in bad shape.

With the caps on, you don't know the difference. Check out the firewall inside and out as this can be another hiding place. Everybody into these trucks knows to look at those places. I've seen it done and it makes a world of difference. There were a small number of crew cab trucks built during these years for railroads and other uses.
