Okay so a couple months back I got a wild hair and sold my "Pepe" 1986 720 KC. The interior was done, it ran and drove absolutely perfect and so on. But, it needed a ton of bodywork to make it right. So I actually got $1900 for it because I had actually done a ton of work in just little stuff and it was really clean. So, I was going through major withdrawals and found this one today on craigslist. It's a 1985 KC 2wd A/C. It runs like crap but the interior is pretty clean with no cracks in the dash at all. But the main reason I got it is because the body is almost perfect. It only has one small dent in the rear quarter panel. It's awesome!! And I got it for only $900!! WhooHoo!!
 
More pics to follow. I'm tired from driving all over today.

I'm hoping it just needs a tune-up. It still has the original plug wires so there maybe some other original parts that need to be changed. I scored a set of Chevy 1/2 ton chrome wheels today and then later in the day I was at another customer of mine and I ended up scoring a set of Titan wheels for only $100. What a funny day.

That's not far from me at all. I'm surprised I haven't seen it. There's a few 720's in Vegas but not many are done. Where do you live Smooth?

Here's some updated pics. So far I've changed the plugs, wires, cap & rotor (all were orginal from 1985 w/166k miles) It seems to be running much better. I'll have to run some clean fuel through it to know for sure. I have to go and get a temp license for it from the DMV before I can drive it to get it smogged. I changed the exhaust manifold gaskets and the tailpipe too. Next will be the radiator hoses. I took the seats out and cleaned the interior. I'll probably dye the carpet next and see how it comes out. It's a bit faded in spots. If that doesn't turn out alright then I'll just replace it like I did in my other one.
