Yes, it was his truck. Also, I think it's a fair price considering the condition that it's in and not to mention the amount of work poured into it.

Definitely a good example of a unique and well sorted G!

You should highlight the work you’ve done to it.

So I assume the prev installed MWM engine was replaced by the Sprinter engine?
and the trans is the 711.6xx type? but from the pic, it looks not a Sprinter or MB shifter.
May be these pics are from prev installation.
