From Mark :

Found this classic Chevy Task Force truck in the local Tradin' Post about six months ago. I bought it, non-running, for $1900 including delivery.

The only rust on the truck is the rear corners and the bottom of the passenger door. For Illinois, this is really very good condition.

The truck is from Arkansas and last ran in 1994. The 1994 plate and inspection sticker are proof of that.

The Arkansas owner sold the truck in non-running form to a guy in northern Indiana five or six years ago. That fellow parked it in a heated garage. He didn't work on it at all and sold it to a guy in Bloomington Illinois. That fellow also parked it in a heated garage, but he added a brand new starter and ignition. He soon tired of it and sold it to me.

I have since rebuilt the brakes, added a new rear main seal, new fuel pump, new carb and spin on oil filter. I've gotten it running pretty well, but I need to tinker with it for a few years before I call it quits.

The plan is to haul gas for the tractor, or run to the lumber yard when needed. I am a big fan of the original look and don't plan to paint the truck just yet.

I do plan to add the Midget Farms logo to the doors though.
