Seller's Description

I have a ton of interested people contacting me so I will save some time here and answer a few questions. - I won't take 500 bucks, I can cut out the drivetrain and get $1,000. - I would consider trading for motorcycle, old pickup truck 1995 and older, or an ultralight, those 3 things. - I work 3rd shift so my hours a different. - The reason I'm selling is because I don't have time to invest in it, that being said you will need a trailer with at least 1/2 ton truck to remove. - The garage it is parked at will work on it for you for a fee, I can arrange it or give the information and you can contact them yourself. - The needed work before I would trust it to drive across the country are - 4 tires - a battery - passenger mirror reattached. (Thread setter, or some form of sheet metal inserts) - fuel filter, flush fuel system to be sure no foreign debris, that would stop your road trip in its tracks. - Oil filter and change. - visually inspect brakes and rest of vehicle. - I think the price adjustments are reflective of current known work needed. - Ohkey Doekey? This is a rare odd Chinook floor plan, all original Chinook that I was going to restore. It has the 5.7 chevy small block, th400 trans, heavy-duty rearend, 58,000 miles. 16 1/2 rims. It has a shower inside with grey and black tanks, gas stove and cooktop with a hot water heater and furnace. Comes with the high tech dial tv set and vhs player. It is an all fiberglass shell, It has a rooftop air conditioner as well. When I found her she was sitting for 30+ years, I checked everything out, put gas can inside with a hose to carburetor, put a battery in and it fired right up and idled like it was parked there yesterday. I drove it 25 miles to where she is now. Unfortunately I never had time to give her the attention she deserves. Hopefully, one day she will be back to her former glory days. $1500, she needs a good home.. The pictures of the outside are exactly where and how I found it, after sitting 30+years. The tires I had to dig out they were almost halfway up the rims buried. The man I got it from said he bought it in California and drove it to NewYork to stay in while he built his house. He made 2 trips back and forth in the “80s and it was parked there until I drove it outta there in 2019, its currently at a garage parked. He said he had all the paperwork and was gonna look for it, I have been in contact with him since and nothing yet, I suppose 30 years is a long time, so he is willing sign paperwork if needed. I did some research and spoke to DMV and its old enough to get a title without troubles, even without his help. frame is solid, the front fenders are the worst of the rust.
