3 speed transmission with over drive, 2 speed transfer with locking hubs.
It shifts good and doesn’t pop out of gear.
All lights, turn signals and gauges are working, good oil pressure and the charging system works.
No speedometer (see photos).
Twin fuel tanks, full roll cage, tilt wheel and good tires.
Has one small rust spot underneath (see photos) and a front end alignment is due.
