What do you think would be a good price for an HJ45? It's a 74, Imported from South africa back in 77. They took out the a/c out and put in a heater, H41, H-diesel, been a hunting truck. Pretty minimal rust. Cool smokestack , custom roll bar...neat camo... 3k? 5K? 7K?

I really think that truck should be mine! Ben....you'll just pimp it out anyway....thats no way for a 45 work truck to live!

Not sure...lol...that's what I was told, a dealership in denver got some in back in the day or traded, or mail ordered some bride's and got the trucks with it...

It was a guys sons who has passed away prolly around 5+ years ago. They have had offers, just bad ones and really want it to go to someone who really likes cruisers...(don't mention the roll to them )

So I'd imagine it's possible that it's South American model if he couldn't remember...but I thought they were mostly gassers there? Again, many more knowledgeable people than me on this.

My plans would be to keep her pretty damn stock...fix rust, repaint, cleanup and factoryize it. To me it's just not the right one to make gigantic and beat up.

They used to drive it all over colorado hunting. But I don't think it's been moved from it's current location in over 5+ years. (could I still be more cryptic? ) TJ knows where it's at...but I have sworn him to secrecy on it or else a heard of rabid chihuahua's shall come and attack him

If I decide to pass on this, I'll definitely make sure you guys have the first crack at bringing her back to glory.

All vehicles sold new in South Africa are RHD, so if it was bought there, it wasn't sold new there. Most sub-saharan African countries got both gassers and diesels, Including South Africa. South America is different, for example Venzuela never got any diesels at all, but Costa Rica got a lot.

Maybe South American import?

Jump on it. 45's are hard to find and that one looks pretty solid. You only live once, right?

If you don't go for it you should let Buckroseau in MN know about it. He's ready to do another ground up resto and is fiending for a LWB 45. I'm sure you've seen his 45lv wagon resto. Amazing.

So more than likely they just forgot where it came from would be my guess. What would you think is a good "ball park" price for something like this?
