    1974 RS700L parade truck

    Im going to retire and have to downsize right now where I live I don't have a place to park it indoors and hate to see it sit outside to let the weather ruin it. My insurance company wants to raise the rates because of the liability of people riding in the back too. I will turn it back into a semi tractor if it doesn't sell and just do truck shows with it. I thought I would just put it out there to test the waters and see if there is a good market for it Im not eager to sell it but will if the right person and cash come along.
