interior is nasty. dash is all messed up. if you manage to find some good early dashes both brandon and I are looking. i know the east coast was much kinder to early dash boards :thumbsup: .

i've decided to keep the springs at stock untill spring. ill need it for DD duty over the winter. I also have to do some paperwork as it has no title. but thanks to MT law getting a title is easy, so that will get done this week.

the engine bay is very simple with the carb so ill clean it up once its runnin. its getting the 1.8 p&p jh w/10.5:1 comp out of the rocco. so ill be carless over next weekend. i hope to have it running by my b-day, witch is coming up soon (1 week).

its gettin cold so i hope to have a garage soon

ps its inari silver l94a.

Did you score it with the dual round grille?! Well worth $75, I think. Also that thing has the euro fenders/quarters on it so that the Euro bumpers will bolt right onto it. What year is it? That thing looks like it is in really good shape, great find!!

Also, why does Zeke always wear a jacket?

7/79, thought only German diesels made it over here that late.

Maybe it came through Canada?

Does it have the green interior and dash?

Looks like the already started the bodywork, the lt fender light is shaved. :)

Now that I look again, the left and right fenders are different. The pass. has the orange light and the euro bumper hole, and the driver's doesn't. One is early US and one is euro. And with a dual round grille, that is one confused bunny!
