Thanks to all who expressed interest in the little blue 40. It found a good home.

Thanks to Ige - you were right. The problem was just the hub. :thumb:

Sky Blue was the OE color for '78. Was it repainted?

Voodoo, sky blue - Smurf blue. PM replied to. Whoever gets this one is going to be happy. This was Denco40's find. The only thing it doesn't have are the original wheels and the smog stuff. Has the aircleaner on it still. DUI dizzy and good maintenance. Well above average shape and great mechanically. And it's a great deal.:thumb:

How much does he want for it?

My old man is looking for a clean cruiser, but not at the current "clean cruiser" prices.

Damn. Kids have been asking me when I'm going to buy another 40. I just don't have the space to keep it out of the rain.

The blue 40 has a good home. I appreciate all the interest. If anything changes I'll let all those who expressed an interest know.

Weird. I wonder why he's selling it.

yeah ditto, seems odd unless he's just trying to make a buck on it. Wasn't the pretense no flippers?

Anyone know what the asking price from the original seller was? I'm still interested in this truck, but I don't think I am at $8k.
Thanks

To clear up any confusion, the original deal fell through. I apologize for any mix-ups. I will consider offers from this group if any are interested.

Original post:

I finally ended my 40 search, but would like to pass on a great deal on a nice 78 that was my second choice. Voodoo blue,uncut daily driver, original w/little rust. Was going to buy it too, but one white elephant is all I need right now. Send me a PM if you're seriously interested. Don't bother if you're a flipper.

Just curious...what deal fell through?

Sorry all those who were interested in the 78 missed out on the deal. This was DenCo40's find originally so he had first dibs on it when I passed. I wanted to keep it for myself as a daily driver while I redid the 77, but my tow rig and trailer fell through and I couldn't get both out here at the same time. Plus, the blue just wasn't me. I think he was thinking of redoing it for his son to drive eventually, but the blue wasn't for him either.

He got a good deal. If he makes some money on it I'm sure it will go right into his 77. I was thinking of Razor when I originally mentioned the flipper thing.

Is that alright with you Matt? :rolleyes:

Abe, that was not an 8K truck when I saw it.

I wish this whole thing had been more straight-forward from the start. I hope that the people on our forum are here because they love cruisers, not flipping for profits. That is Craigslist stuff. Maybe I'm too simple and trusting...

Thanks Sascha,

I appreciate the insight. That is kind of what i was thinking from the pics. Much like you, even if it was worth 8k, it also kind of rubs me the wrong way to pay a premium to someone that never added any value to the vehicle & just got their first.

Best,
Abe

What a bummer.
