“This truck has been renewed and refreshed in original equipment without disturbing its authenticity, experience, and patina. It served as a service station vehicle for many years in Bellows Falls VT until it turned about 44K miles in 1991. From there is sat, little used, and was discovered in a barn in 2014 where it came to CT and underwent a full restoration of its aging or failed parts and systems. Now it drives several times per week on local trips and has attended local parades and Caffeine & Carburetor shows. The only non-OEM changes have been the addition of three point restraints and the electrification of the wipers. Currently odometer shows just under 47K miles.
Inline 6 cyl 226 engine, three speed transmission, transfer case, front wheel locking hubs, one ton hauling capacity, full fold-down tailgate, three-point restrains. Everything on the truck works and the four wheel drive is amazing – also it drives happier with a half load than empty.

Replaced, repaired, or renewed:
Entire brake system from master cylinder thru lines, slaves, drums.
Front springs, shocks, and some bearings and tie rod ends
Clutch and brake pedals repaired, radiator flushed and new hoses, new speedometer cable, new electric wipers, new passenger window mechanism and glass
Full tune-up, new wires/coil/distributor parts, new fuel pump and filter, new headlamps and turn signal unit, new LED brake lights.
5 new original spec steel wheels, new Cooper AT3 tires in the original proportions. New wiper motor, three point restraints.”

    Dave, is this the type air filtering system you were looking for? I can’t remember if you found one.
