Its got roughly 180,000 miles on it, z24, 1985.  I have no clue on the ownership.  Its a pretty rough story.  

I found the truck sitting at a widows house back int he summer. I spent about 3 hours with her that day talking about the truck, and life, and everything else you can think of. I even went inside and hooked up her telephone. She told me that the truck was her sons and he died of cancer a few years back, she said she had the title but it was in her sons name still in South Carolina. I told the lady I would come back later in the year to buy the truck.  My brother became very interested in purchasing it and I bough the 240 so I let him at it.  We went to buy the truck and the lady never would answer the door. Her car was there but it looked as if it hadn't moved in awhile. There was an awkward feeling at her residence.   We both go back a week or so later and there is cars all in the driveway, "great"! we though.  We pull up and a guy comes out with a strange look on his face.  I told him we had talked to the woman and we were there to buy the truck.  He said that He couldn't talk about it right then and to come back in a month.  We were distraught and left. A month later I was headed to the machine shop to drop off the KA stuff and I was going to swing by the ole ladys house to check on the truck.  Im cruising down the road and I see the damn thing on somebody's trailer!!!!  sh*t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I flagged the guy down and we had a conversation on the side of the road. He had just bought it for 375$   sh*t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    I got his name and number and he told me he was going to rip the doors off it and run it through the creek!    I rushed home and called my brother and told him the bad news, he was heartbroken. He decided he couldn't let that happen to such a nice 720 so he called the guy and made a deal.  The price was higher than what we originally were going to pay but the guy put a new starter on it and got it running for us.  We drove it home and it runs better and faster than the L20B in the blue devil!
