Wow, haven't seen that one for awhile:)

A number of years back (2011), it was f/s as a stocker up in the middle of winter, but it was "Snowed In", the seller told a friend of mine, if he wanted it NOW, the cost to have a front end loader come in & cut a path to the Quonset was on him, otherwise, it would remain in the quonset until after breakup. (I know another fellow who lived in AK at the time, and having seen pics of the yard at his place that same winter, that loader would have been there for quite some time....)
It was a solid truck, as being a 2WD, I'm thinking it had been shedded in the winter most of it's life?? 300 I-6, 4 spd, one repaint, AK seller was asking $7900.00, which was pretty high at the time, but this one would have been worth it!
Well, AFAIK, Brian Pope made a deal, and the truck ended up @ his shop in NC, where they put a MII front suspension in the front, a 9" out back and changed it's altitude by a bunch.....I believe the fellow that posted the vid on youtube was in Calif??
Anyways, another one of those "Ones that got away" :)

**I still have a hardcopy of the CL Ad:)

Interesting. I was in Alaska in 2011. Don't remember it.
