If you have already purchased the truck, I'll give you all the money in my wallet for it.

If you haven't purchased it yet, could you pm me the owner's name and #....?

The Marmon might have some cool factor but in the end that W900A will make you happier

I love to see a senior truck in that kind of condition. Would love to find another one like it. If it is as sweet as it looks, you can't go wrong if the price is decent.

Bargain with him.....sleeper isn't original.

What kind if seat is on the drivers side? With Bostrom Leathers, theres not much room left is there?

Thats aftermarket or homemade upholstry....not original VIT.

Looks good to me. Pardon my ..inquisitiveness...but what is the owner asking for it if you'll share that? You're among friends. Roger

Hey loghauler you forgot the most important part. What is under the hood a yeller feller or a cum a part? Like sledman said not the right sleeper should have a more rounded one.Over all nice looking truck.
