The cam bearings were removed and the block was hot-tanked, revealing numerous cracks; which cannot be repaired. A replacement used engine is included with the sale.

All parts which show as removed are present. This truck was a working truck utilized in the construction business. When it was running, it was unstoppable but very slow. Top speed might be 60 mph. It has a four speed transmission. It comes with a spare transmission with synchromesh second, third, and fourth gears. The truck has a heater.
