    Owner said it runs and drives, the reason it was taken off the road was because of a bad frame section ( aluminum ) back by the rear suspension.

    Has 8 bag suspension. 13 speed transmission, factory A/C too. Somewhere I have a picture of the door tag.

    Good Freind I’ve bought parts from for over 25 years owns it. It’s not an extender hood, but still could be a nice truck with some work. I can check to make sure he still has it.....

    you said it still has the KT in it, or has it been swapped out?

    What are we looking at in the center of the interior ceiling? Is that a headliner that is torn and drooping or something else?
     
    Bean Jr. Thanks this.

    An upholstery insert into the roof liner, it is separate from the fiberglass liner.

    Sorry just seen this.... I just called him and he confirmed he still has the truck. I was thinking it had a 13 speed but he said it was a 15 speed with a wet kit.
     
    650cat425 Thanks this.

    Everyone wants a ‘73 since it was the 50th anniversary. . I’ve seen lot’s of pictures of them and have only seen one in person at a show 10 years ago. Probably just as rare as the Bicentennials now.
