    Hello,
    New to the site and the square body, not new to the product. Spotted a little gem covered in dirt, not running, and bed full of aluminum cans. A couple of days chasing the owner down, a little negotiating, some elbow grease..... She's all mine to enjoy.

    Thanks! Custom color the previous owner did. Just a shade darker than factory.

    Thanks! With the Mandarin orange interior, BBC, factory A/C, and power everything (all of which work and no hacked up wiring) it was a no brainier. I threw a new distributor and battery in and she fired right up. Shifts firm, runs on both tanks. I have a few interior pieces to buy and maybe do something with the peeling clear coat, but other than that I'm just going to enjoy.
