I think it was originally red but was re-painted many years ago to a very dark purple--almost black. When it was painted, whoever did it did a very complete job of it. The paint is starting to bake off the top surfaces, but the primer they used is hanging in there. I don't see any evidence of it having any bodywork or rust repair. All the chrome and trim is on the truck and in nice shape, the bumpers sit even and have not been bashed (miracle). Interior is original and not showing the normal wear. Seats are nice and not torn, passenger seat still works fine and is not loose, steering column has been replaced and is tight, dash is not cracked, has the original radio and has not had the dash face cut on. Door and side panels are nice but could use a drivers arm rest. Carpet is not torn but would need a good cleaning. Rear vent does not leak, correct spare and tire tools/jack are present. Rear hatch will need lift struts replaced.
I bought this truck in 'non-running' condition. It had been driven by the original owner since day one and had died on him. His son in law got the truck, replaced the fuel pump, throttle body, and computer trying to get it to run but could only get it to start then immediately die. I did some diagnostics and replaced the hall effect in the distributor but still would not run past the starting stage. You can start it and it will run as long as you spray fuel in the throttle body. Engine runs smooth, has good oil pressure, no funny noises. None of the wiring has been hacked or replaced. All of the vacuum lines are on it as well as all of the smog equipment. It not like its been jacked with and there is no telling what was done to it--its all original.
I'm not real excited to get rid of this because its so hard to find one that is not rusted and everything it was made with is still there and intact. When I get to the point of wanting another one, it will be hard and expensive to find another one this nice and original.
