Well I hate to do this but here it goes. This is a 1970 Camper Special that was started as a custom project. Fortunately it has mild custom work so it can still be restored to original style. It has a roll pan, k&n filter and cover, all wholes welded, no mirrors, and missing almost everything. The paint (the reason it was totalled) needs to be redone. I paid a shop to paint it. The paint job came out crappy and insurance totlled it. By the way it now has a salvaged title. My insurance quoted the value as $8000 but with now a salvaged title I am not sure what it is worth. Never wrecked but needs bodywork. Pretty much needs TLC. Well just looking to see if anyone is interested.

Yea insurance paid me out because no one wanted to take us seroius. They would quote me $10000 to $30000 to repaint and said I need new this new that order this and that.... Then once it got totalled they were saying oh we could use the money to do this and that... I knew the truck had value all along and all the shops around here thought I was full of shit. Idiots. It sucks that I live in a small town with mostly rich stuck up people that don't want business unless you have tons of cash. So yea... I'm looking around since I have money. Here's my two choices....

Craigslist: Rare step side F-100 http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/cto/3608205323.html

Or....

Craigslist: 1971 Chevy Pick Up http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/3607638749.html

I must be missing something here . Why are the insurance involved in this ? I thought you were doing a rebuild on your own with it .Must be some paint job at $10000 to $30000 .

I don't quite understand it, either, but seeing the 2 trucks, I'd have to drive and inspect them first. Both look great and the price is too close for that decision. You'll know which one when you drive it.

Yeah I was rebuilding but the guy did such a bad job. I had full coverage on the truck lucky for me. Well he ruined my chrome, wiring, paint, and bodywork is not that great. So insurance being that is insured was handling it as vandalism and theft. Also he kept a lot of new parts I ordered (said they came from LMC damaged). As you can see total scum. So insurance paid me off.

Yeah I already love it! The guy before me lives 3 hours away and has a summer home where I live! How crazy is that?! He kept it clean and simple. Looks awesome!

Thanks! I will be careful! I found out what it can do on the 3 hour drive home from Phoenix, Arizona. Worth every penny!
