    SORRY - the price is $13,500 OBO

    Well it's sad, but I have to get rid of the beast! I am using as a daily driver and its just killing me, gets about 6 MPG. I bought about a year ago and it's everything I always wanted AND more! Probably a little too much for me, as the axels are 1.25 ton and have detroit locker, which is not good for driving high speeds (I did drive from Idaho fine at around 70MPH). This guy definitely turns heads. I have all the receipts which total more than $30,000 in parts. The engine alone is worth around $9,000 and has been Dyno'd at 500HP. Guy told me with blower could get over 1000 HP out of her. I truely love this vehicle but just too old for it I guess. Would consider trades looking for nice pickup like 2001 Ford 250 Lariat (or even prestine 72 blazer that I could use as a daily driver), or other??, but needs to be "NICE" ride (preferably with heated seats!) Here are all the specs, please call or email me with any questions email: mailto:larry_edwards@luvshack.org cell: 406.579.2666
