New Price 8,000
Last drop. Heading to Ebay if it doesn't go here.....
Asking 12,500 NEW PRICE 10,000 OBO
Hi, I am selling my G after a short ownership. Too many projects and not really the truck for me at the moment.
I bought the truck from the original owners family and have been driving it around town daily. I have put about 250 miles on it.
It is definitely a europa truck, and I have the frame and body manuals, as well as the glove box owners manual.
It is inspected, and runs /drives nicley.
The 4wd works well, and the lockers engage.
I had the radiator rebuilt and replaced one CV joint which was the issue I was having when I bought it, and asked for help here. See previous posts.
The original owner took good care of it as far as I can tell as its basically 100% original.
Just from looking at it you can tell it was mechanically maintained, and probably garaged most of its life. It has recently had a full stainless exhaust, the brake and fuel lines replaced, and the distributor and wires are pretty new. The oil was clean when I bought it.
The interior is in amazing condition, and I believe the paint is original. I also believe the mileage is accurate at 98,000. It is my understanding that the truck was always a 3rd vehicle and mostly a winter ride for the original owner. Hence the undercarriage rust.
The truck has rust. There is heavy surface rust on most of the under carriage, the rockers, and other places. I do not feel this is terminal, just in need of some attention if the you want the truck to last another 30 + years. You could ignore it and drive it another 15, but that would be sad.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Constructive Comments welcome.
p.s. Not interested in parting anything out, thanks.
