    Well, at least the front clip is. One thing we can say for sure is that it is not a 70-71 model.

    Colorado plates, prolly all ate up underneath. No saving that beast. And not a 71 by any means.

    Ahh, John. It depends on two things to not include in your search for a rust free Colorado ride. Mountain car or city car both have good odds of being infested with termites. Avoid those two areas. You have to center your search out in the plains/ farming part of the state to find the hidden jewels.
    North East Colorado, the Western end of Nebraska and Kansas are the productive areas. You go to the dirt road areas where the roads get soooo crapy in the winter that the cars are put up in the dry for months. You stop at every ranch and politely ask what they have stashed. You'd be amazed at the number of 50's thru 70's vehicles in sheds and behind barns that were parked because the owners either didn't know they could get new brake drums and rotors or needed an excuse to snatch a newer ride. Paint and rubber and glass might be a bit rough thanks to sand storms but the metal is nice and solid. Brought back a 63 Impala, 70 Impala, and a 65 Custom Cab Chevy pickup and got my eye on a super nice 59 Galaxie at the moment. Turned a heck of a nice profit on the Chevys back here. The Galaxie will be a keeper. The average 9% humidity in that area is your friend.

    Figured they salted the roads out that way, I dunno. At the very least, it's ugly.

    Not. Not only no salt but enough snow that you only might drive a huge tractor if you're lucky. Got trapped out there one December by the weather, had to get a neighbor rancher to drag in a rollback truck with his tractor then drag us out to the pavement, only 40 miles each direction. Sucked bigtime for my wallet. Snowplows and sand on the blacktop was all you got, even then you waited if they closed the interstate. Learned to watch the weather real close. Kinda' like the weather they may be getting now.

    Bigfoot could only get a highly modified cattle hauler up to 130 on a salted, slushy road,...tops.

    Anyone contact the guy about this 71/72 monster? See what's up?

    This interior...I've seen cleaner bathrooms at Wal-Mart....

    Anybody else wonder what is that 2-legged rusty object in the bed? Might be an alien spacesuit. If only Trikar was still around.
