Once ubiquitous, these little trucks disappeared over the years and we all know where they went. The tin-worm plague knocked out nearly every last one of them. Like dinosaur fossils, only those landing in just the right conditions stood the test of time.
Buy this truck and use it as a runabout, even though it will be hard-pressed to do interstate speeds. Lock the hubs and take it through the mud, but be sure to give it the care it deserves. It is the last of a great breed.
