Nice U1300 with crane

If anyone wants to piss around about this being an auction, and being posted, and somehow being unfair, spare me.

This is one of the nicer trucks I have seen on fleabay. The crane and tipper is a nice combo.

I would rip the photos and post them, but I am not that computer savvy.

I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon these principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I'd agree, looks like a regular WB model.

Nice picker though!

Has tipper bed, just -cough- needs the tipper cylinder. To me no cylinder means no tipper. Off hand what would the out of pocket be on the tipper cylinder?

These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

i looked at this truck he had another 1300 with a plow that was red. I dont know all there is to know about these trucks but I'm pretty sure its bigger than a 1300, sounds dumb but it definitely was bigger than the other 1300 he had as far as height and width. It is very very very clean, the owner was very honest and forthcoming about the red 1300 he had as well.

I'm not singling this particular one out, but as a general point, why is that when anyone is selling a Unimog or Pinzgauer, they take three or four crappy photos from a long way back, out of focus, and then upload them at the smallest resolution possible? Do none of us own a camera made after about 1995? Are we all on 56k dial-up modems?

To make it even more certain not to sell, most people seem to put a description of about three lines and then ask for a big sum of money. I just don't get it. Most auctions on ebay for a $10 item have better photos and descriptions.

Some don't even go that far- they will just put on the exchange "email me for photos or if you have any questions". Is someone going to buy without the photos or asking questions? Can we not figure out how to take proper photos and put them on the inter webs?

It's driving me nuts!

Not getting at that one auction, just talking in general.

Not just mogs, it seem to be endemic with those selling less than common items. A friend was looking at a '68 IH Carryall and the seller had 4 photos total and the description. "1968 IH Carryall 4x4 SBC power."
