Thanks Kent......
Looks nice and an Iron Box 5 speed.
CL allows 24 pictures so I always wonder why a seller posts so few.
No passenger side pictures either or motor or rear seat or cargo area or --------

Killer color. Labrador Blue is excellent.

Give him credit for being honest about CA smog. Tired of reading so many bulls on ads claiming it’s California ready

Wonder if the sale has anything to do with CA cracking down on Montana plates? I've heard stories that law enforcement is on the lookout for exotic vehicles with the blue Montana plates.

law enforcement cracking down is the least to worry about. I would be more worry about insurance not paying out casualty claims in a mishap based on irregularities of how the car is registered. In an ideal situation, insurance is known to find loopholes to renege on paying out big claims. Just a simple google and you shall see....

Looks nice. Just a bit of caution, I've seen a lot of 4 photo Craigslist ads that are fake.

Hey Guys,

This is my truck, I moved back to MA last year, but the winters here are so harsh that I thought I would see if any buyers were out in LA who might want to keep it in that nice dry climate. I’m shipping it back east in a few weeks if none come through, and I’m not that motivated to sell (hence the poor pics etc) but thought I’d test the waters. Happy to answer any questions I can. I documented some of the restoration process in a thread here for those who are interested.
