    1977 Single Cab ute for Sale - Don't!

    Normally not comfortable about bagging someone's car, but in this case!

    Owners lied about the condition, just looking for a mug to drop it on. Photos provide taken to hide the problems, kept changing the story on history (father owned for twenty, then 9 etc).
    Went & had a look, travelled 8 hours, hoping as explained & as photos provided (owners did not care less). Bog & rust everywhere - poor paint prep, looks like it's been painted using a spray tin.
    Give it a miss. They're asking $13,000, not worth half considering body condition, gearbox & the rest.

    Good heads up. It presents very well in the photos and at 13k it would be tempting to transfer the money and organise interstate transport sight unseen.

    Pictures do not tell the story of a thousand words - been caught like that before.
