here you folks go.  I know nothing about this truck other than I have driven by it a few times.  there looks to be 1 spot with rot, but other than that, it looks pretty good?

if you folks are interested give the guy a call.

TRN.... I know I am late to the discussion because... Mustangs LoL 

How about a small Jeep Cherokee... dime a dozen, easy to modify, aftermarket parts everywhere. They can be had for peanuts, building one with a carb and a points ignition could be done. 4.0 six cylinder converted to a Carb, manual trans they are narrow, short, tougher than they look, and blend in very well. This seats wife/kids/dogs.....costs almost nothing, and blends in real well. They were also available in red  :grin:

If not I have a M37 I'll sell yah LoL

We have a bunch of guys up here that we call river rats. They spend their weekends driving up and down the river bed of the Platte river. They favor the Cherokee's because they just flat work. The required modifications to a truck to drive through 6' of water and to handle say a EMP  burst are quite similar. Well set up rigs run 35" rubber, de-computerized 4.0's and a pair of lockers. Because of the environment they run in, most don't spend much over say $3500 to build one.

I'll vote for it, however if he's expecting the passengers in the back to have a semblance of comfort then it might not work as in imagined. Plus side they are easy to work on, parts are cheap and they are pretty capable.
So, Bobby...being the calculating trained warrior NCO that you are.  Take the appropriate action, Execute!
