really clean looking, wonder when it build date is, early 85 or late 85? Looks sort of weird with the small tires and such.

Looks like a repaint for sure with the rear mud flaps gone, no snake blinders, and obvious undercoat in the wheel wells. White's the easiest color to hide body filler with too. There would be at least a few rock chips in that paint if it was original.

I agree that the the door shot shows a sheen that looks like a repaint. Also, it's just unlikely that it is *that* clean after all these years.

is that the one that our flipper friend in Bailey or wherever sold last year? Bought it for cheap, gave it a $100 detail, and sold for $5k more than he bought it for??

It's the chrome strip on the rockers under the doors.

Tail light lenses are also cloudy and glazed looking. In my experience, the paint would be in similar shape over time. I can't explain exactly why this is, but it is usually true. Looks like it has been repainted, but still a beautiful truck nonetheless.
