We shipped this for a US resident customer a little while back. He ran out of time / desire / money to deal with it while in NZ or was freaked by the compliance check list (even though he said it hadn't been compliance inspected!). We were happy to take on the challenge.
1981 F100 short be 2WD with 4.9L six, 4-speed trans, power steering, power disc brakes. Excellent rust free body. Nice paint with cool hand painted sign writing (just polished & looking awesome).
