- fair considering age. In driving road condition, worn and weathered patina to the truck and bed. The carburetor has recently been rebuilt and may need some adjusting. The hydraulic dump is in working condition. The interior light and most of the exterior lights work, however, the brake lights and turn signals are not currently functioning. Due to its age this truck was not built with and has never had seat belts installed. Passenger window rolls down but falls off track. It needs help rolling back up and needs adjusting or repair.
