Stroll round overview

By no means have points on begin up, even prolonged durations. Typical 60 diploma morning, 1st begin up. As a behavior we normally “double faucet” the glow plugs (new quick glow plugs and relay convertion).

Begin up, all lights functioning regular.
Word: alternator mild wants the preliminary slight rpm kick to “wake it up” as all of those older programs did. I will get an up to date video.

The spouse was abit nervous over video taping the beginning up… smoke free Giles tremendous pump and injectors make all of the distinction.

Tastefully optioned and upgraded. Not many authentic rust free stable examples like this one left. The unique beneath hood paint highlights the rust free regular “sizzling spots” like the everyday shock tower and ground excessive rot out areas! Chances are you’ll by no means discover one this rust free. Household owned, leak free and storage hold truck. Flip key driver standing. Take it anyplace. Regular Ca. registration. NO biannual smog verify on these “beneath the radar” early diesels… even right here in Ca. Able to any alternate gasoline though I’ve solely run Chevron high tier fuels. Extra dependable than my TDI Jetta SportsWagen and simply as enjoyable. The spouse affectionately named her “peanut butter” for a number of apparent causes.

Able to ship or you’ll be able to fly in and drive dwelling. One of many highest m.p.g. automobiles ever constructed. Bid with confidence.
