looks pretty nice. Color change kills it for me though.

Me too on the color change. They just never look right.

I too prefer the turquoise but it still looks pretty good. I have always been partial to the 64 models. It could be because I had a 64 back in the day.

Outside cosmetic restoration only but pretty nice. The wheels look dorky.

Pretty darned nice truck. I'd buy it (If) and drive it.

Yep, if the truck checks out as well as it is described and appears; a little expense for adding the turquoise back would still represent a bargain! Advertising a truck supposedly in Olathe in the Tulsa C/L at that price would need more understanding than the paint, IMO!

Paul, can you explain your comment?

Also wanted to say that it's not the color change that bothers me , it's that it is very difficult to do well and not get overspray or paint on rubber and trim etc. I can always see it and it bugs me. I don't mind the white, just want it to be done well. That's usually not the case. Example is the overspray on the hood hinges and the obvious turquoise firewall. I'm not knocking anyone's work here, it's very difficult to do. Just tdon't change the hue and repaint the same color, much more forgiving.
I have a 64 that has someones repaint where they changed from Academy Blue to Black. I think someone got a new spraygun and wanted to try it out in the backyard that weekend. Would have been better if they had just "put the gun down and walked away". :P
But, I'm not changing it. It's got character! (read black and blue all over with primer and surface rust) Today's sought after patina. :roll:

The color change wouldn't worry me much. Laquer thinner cleans hood hinges, it's probably ready for new rubber around the glass..

Why the upper radiator hose is sucked shut in the middle would, how long has it been doing that, and how hot has it got would.

Yes a new radiator cap is easy, but the head gaskets that fail later and the set rings spell headaches to come... Y block rebuilds are sooo cheap...

My bet is, it is being sold do to a "strange" intermittent over heating problem that can't be found.
:2cents:
