74 repu parts truck in CT

Today I found a 74 repu in CT for sale. The truck is complete minus the motor, tranny & bumpers. The interior and glass are in ok shape. The floors do need some work. The reason I went to look at it was because I want a few trim pieces for my 75 repu. I dont need much off the truck but i do know that they are getting harder to locate. I would buy the entire truck but I dont have a place for it and like I said before I dont need much off the truck. Plus if my wife found out about it I would be sleeping in it. The guy will only sell the truck complete and is not willing to part it out. If someone is interested in buying it together with me let me now. All I would want is the few trim pieces I need for mine. Besides that whoever buys it can have the rest of the truck. I figured I would post this seeing that these trucks in the northeast are not common. Looking at the truck it can be made road worthy but it would take work.
Let me know what you guys think.

Hey Hector,

Where in CT is the truck,and how much does the guy want for it? What color is it? I don't have any money right now,but if the deal is right I could possibly find it. Would you be willing to split the cost? I can take the truck to my place.

Hello Chris,

The truck is 20 minutes from my house in Hartford. It it green but it looks like like it was painted once or twice. The guy said he wants $500 for it but his friend who told me about the truck said that he needs money to finish working on his other car. So I figured on offering him $4oo to see if he would let it go. His friend thinks he would let it go for that price. I wouldn't mind sharing the cost since I could use parts off of it. I think I may have found a place to store also. I'll get back to you soon.

Hector

I don't need a lot of parts,but I am interested in having a parts truck laying around,for when I ever get around to restoring my truck. Maybe we could split this thing three ways,and each get some parts. I wouldn't mind storing the frame,body,and such at my place after you guys get what you want.I have plenty of storgae space(mostly outside,but no one complains).

Hector,did you see if the headliner was still the original white,and in good shape? How about the weatherstripping? How was the grille,headlight surrounds? Thanks for posting this. If we can split the costs I could afford this I am sure.

i'd like to join in!

i dont have the space, but i would definitely be interested in parts off the truck if they're available.

i would be interested in the front grille, front turn signal lenses, and tail light trim rings if they're available.

thanks!

I'd be interested in the Windshield, tailgate, and ring & pinion.

This might turn out nice if everyone needs different parts.

Just talked to the guy about going this weekend to see the truck again. Like I said before I'll take pictures and post them here with all the info I can get. Who knows, if the price is just right it will probably come home with me.
I'll keep you guys posted.

Hector
