Needs: There is a small leak in the exhaust system, has temporary patch; needs to be welded up or section replaced; oil pressure sender leaked on front end of engine – sender replaced but engine needs to be cleaned up; tires have tons of tread, but are “lumpy” and out of date, should be replaced immediately (8.75R16.5 115R : $107 each at Walmart, $129 each at Firestone).
For Sale By Owner. I have owned this GMC for 15 years and taken many trips in it with family and friends. It has been continuously registered and insured that whole time. I am selling it to move up to a 1978 GMC Motorhome. I love these special machines!
Price: $16,000. CASH.
Scammers and low-ballers: Please do not waste my time!!! I will not discuss price over the phone – you need to come and see it.
Come to Santa Barbara with cash, see it, drive it, love it, buy it!
