    Default 1970 800A for sale - V8, automatic, 65k miles

    Have loved this little truck for 14 years, but no more space, and time to give someone else a turn.

    This is a nice little time capsule. It is not perfect, but is very original. The issues are all "punch list" items that can be easily addressed.

    1970 800a, 304 V8, automatic, 65k original miles.

    Thorough videos and photos posted - cannot post here due to "0 posts" but will email link to anyone interested.

    Truck is in Cohasset Mass.
