Found this near by my house,
It's not running and I'm guessing it will need a frame up restore which probably means it will need a new frame and the bulkhead is probably also shot. The guy wants $3300 for it.
Now here is my conundrum:
If I buy it it will probably have to sit for a couple of years before I'll have the time to get it up and running, but prices of these trucks are only going up so maybe in 2 years a basket case will be double.
I really want a IIa as they're my favorite Series Landys (love the recessed grill) but III's come with Salisbury axles standard and it would be super easy for me to put a pickup cab on this (in the summer I can throw the canvas on it and have a drop top pickup awesome right?) and I'll have a pick up to use for house projects. However if I get a 5 door 109 it can be a awesome family hauler, how cool would it be to take the whole family to the beach?
Now I haven't contacted the seller because I want to offer him $2000 for shits and giggles but I'm worried he'll say yes.
Maybe I sit and think on it for another two months, and then see where I am.
What does oppo think?
Edit: Update people, I've decided I'll let it sit for a couple of months then lowball the seller. I think it might just work.
