Bought this vehicle from a dealer that
marked it "salvage only" on the bill
of sale. Clutch was rough but overall
this was a runner. I put a new clutch
in it a few months after purchase
(easy job!), rebuilt the brakes, and
added new tires. This old 5 liter V8
runs great, uses a little oil but
leaks considerably from front and rear
mains. If it didn't run so darned
good I'd have it rebuilt. Never see a
used lower mileage 5 liter for sale.
Reliability, comfort from the
captain's chairs is better than any of
my previous 58 vehicles including a
Mercedes. Good looking old rig!
reduce the price of components like
starters! Geez, mine went out and
even with a deep NAPA discount, still
paid $125. !
