The ad sells it as a reliable daily city or short distance driver. It has had some carb work done at a local specialist, new brake drums on all four corners (remember drums all around?) and has a Cherry Bomb exhaust that sets off alarms in parking garages (bonus!). Some brake work and getting the heater to work remains. Extra credit for the last line in the ad: "...this truck looks really cool and runs great, but it is not pleasant to drive if you're used to modern cars. Only four gears means it's hard to cruise on the highway, and no power steering means you'll get a workout trying to maneuver in tight spaces."
