It's a real shame that you so-called truck collectors would rather let this truck sit out and rot, instead of letting it go for a decent price to someone who might actually do something with it. It seems some of you people are more worried about bending someone over on the price to make a buck, then actually preserving this wonderful piece of history. If I knew this truck would end up in this situation, I would have bought it a few years back, when it was offered for sale at $5000.00. At least it would be inside instead of rotting away in a field. Just my opinion

Are you talking about Superdog that started this thread? I sincerely hope you did not intend your post to put him down - he has single handedly save hundreds of trucks from the scrap heap and is an asset to the hobby with his knowledge and experience.

You admit you could have bought it years ago - well, he did buy it. It is his now - you are the one that missed the boat. If he wants to light it on fire, then it is his right to do so, he owns it.

Thanks Rob, Thanks Olivetroad. The great thing about the big truck hobby is that there is no overly queer judging, of trucks or their owners. A truck just pulled from a field gets as much attention as an over restored museum piece. It's mutual respect for all who enjoy the same interest at whatever financial level they can enter. Speaking of that, hey Vinny, have you been able to turn a wrench on your U during this vacation?

I recently purchased replacement metal hood latches for an R model, and a air shutter cylinder. Both produced in China but I have to admit, they do match the original(s) in outward appearance quality.

Did anybody ever end up buying this rig or were you all too busy bickering over the condition that it's in? It's nice to see such a rare model still exist, and the price should be high so you know the person buying it has the dough to put into it, I'm sure it wasn't exactly in pristine condition when Superdog purchased it...

I wish they made more of this model actually, my dad really likes it, and he's a big fan of old LTs so this COE version he likes a good bit since he started out driving old CFs, and we just don't have them money to buy a decent LT or the money to restore one that may not be so great, let alone one of these rare Ws! Maybe one day after he finally retires or me or my brother strike it rich somehow...

I believe it’s still at Mike’s dog farm, I still would love to have it too. I just don’t have the coin to give it a proper resto, maybe if I stopped playing with race cars and Harley’s, I’d have some cash in the bank
