Information
I just picked up this old girl from a ranch in Colorado. I don’t think she has a ton of miles as the tires on it were from the early 70s and had like new tread.

I believe she was originally red. Exterior now has a crappy coat of white. Relatively stock. Still has stock air cleaner, oil canister filter. Has been converted to 12v with alternator. Has an unknown PTO winch, complete, but disassembled. Drove it up and down the mountain yesterday and she made it. Ride and steering was no worse than my ‘95 F250. Has a popping sound from the exhaust which I believe is an exhaust valve issue. I replaced tires and shocks as they were ancient.

Plans are to refresh the axles, replace the fluids, replace parts as necessary and sort out the popping out the exhaust.
