Another has a cable for the parking brake looped around the pin and held on with a cable clamp instead of a proper clevis. No telling what the other end has on it.
Actually both sides are that way.
The tranny is leaking a bit as well.

In my e-mail to the seller, I also mentioned:

Mistakes
1.) The 235 engine was 105 horsepower not 92
2.) It did not have an oil bath air cleaner but a dry element type
3.) The "contrasting black running boards" are red in their pictures....that's got to be a bit embarrassing.

Missed selling points
1.) Air conditioning (not completed)
2.) Conversion to 12V and alternator
3.) Front disc brake conversion
4.) Later model Saginaw 4-speed transmission with $$$ Patrick's modified Hurst shifter.
5.) Later model rear axle (year and ratio TBD)
