I've been working on this one for a few months now. It's been a lot of hard work, but it's finally complete! This was an ebay purchase and it was received as shown in the last pic. This Mounty had a lot of thick paint on it, as styled from the 80's, with a lot of neon paint splatter. It also had a cracked front axle housing, but I knew that as the previous owner did disclose this in the auction listing. Stripping all that paint was tough, but one really good thing about this truck is that everything was there! Except for the side mirror, which I luckily had a spare one of these. I had been searching for one of these trucks for a while now, to add to the original 3-speed collection. In the end - after a lot of paint work, wet sanding, buffing, rewiring, polishing the frame and rebuilding the transmission - this is the end result. It did get a little bit of light run time and shifts smoothly through all three gears. I'd also like to thank Bruiserbuilder for the excellent repro transmission caps and the tailgate badge. These bits really add the final touch! I've also added the older style incandescent headlights. Thanks for looking! Comments always welcome! ~Brian
