Bid on this truck while I was bored offshore and ended up winng the auction. Its the first thing I have bought on gl so I was a bit nervous about the process...especially bidding on it without checking it out. Well I feel like I got lucky this time, the truck is nicer than I expected! Zero rust! Its so rust free it almost cant be the original cab?? It has bracing behind the seats I havent seen before as well. Put some batteries in and Truck started right up and ran great, has no brakes or guages but a friend has most all the parts I need. Truck has a bunch of new parts here and there and brand new front tires almost like they were fixing it up and decided to take it out of service?? Beats me...it has a small leak at the pto but otherwise leak free.

truck also has thundercat logos on the doors as an added bonus,

Nice looking truck & welcome aboard to the Green Iron Laughing Academy. Seems like you have all your ducks in a row so far with the purchase & recovery of your first truck. Post up some more pictures as you get her fixed up & running. Good luck with all!

Zero rust on a 1965 multifuel! That is impressive. Please post about the particulars of the front tires, very interested in what is on there.

the vin starts with 01 so I assume it is a 65 model

the tires are Samson 0b103 traction tires, found a few places that carry them with a google search
