Actually saw the truck for sale when searching a couple days ago and said "Damn that's a clean old Pete!"

Great looking truck.

Nice looking pete looks like a nice truck. We have four trucks that are junk in about a year, welcome to Cali. There goes up grading my equipment, now we get to upgrade perfectially good trucks. I fell your pain. Just think after all this truck bull s?!t is done they are really going to start cracking down on our equipment next.

I really hate to go off topic for the moment, but what does Cali do for average Joe motorist with a pile of sh!t car that smokes going down the road and such? We have emissions regulations in 3 counties in WA state, my rigs are all well maintained so it's never been an issue for me but if you fail emissions, as long as you spend at least $150 at a certified emissions specialist's shop toward fixing it, they'll waive it and pass you. Mind you, our emissions are only every other year. Just curious if Cali is going heavy hand on industry and not on every other motorist.

Sweet sweet truck, does it have lockers, I suspect it would... And horse power, how muchy... How would you feel about it coming to Canada ha ha

How is the wiring, harness, any issues with electrical problems... lots of older trucks up here seem to have problems from time to time...

Sweet truck

SP its a 84 im asking 28k.
Allday moving is easier sad then done lol but i have definatlly thought about it more then once!
Thanks cornell
Stick pro yes carb enforcement is going to be cracking down across the board on or off road. I do alot of work for some of the major utilitie companys down here in so cal there already required to retrofit 33% of there offroad equipment bobcat,dozer,graders etc with dpfs. Its crazy ! Im sure its coming the private side soon.
Danny boy 400hp it has a power divider but no lockers. With the walking beam suspension it doesnt need lockers. Ive walked by alot of trucks with airbags and full lockers that have been stuck on jobsites she goes right through it excellent dirt truck. Zero electrical issues. Ive done alot of work on this truck to make it bullet proof. It honestly shows close to new condition.
thanks again every one

I wish I had a need and the money to buy such a nice truck. 359's are one of my favorites.

Could it be repowered with a modern engine and stay on the road?
