1984 720 purchase


Recommended Posts

I just bought a 1984 720 with 61,000+ original miles on it.

It has NO rust anywhere - surprising as it has been a Northeast Pa. truck all its life.

It has a 5-speed tranny.

It runs and drives great.


Story behind it is it was purchased used by the guy I bought it from in 1986 with 16,000 miles on it. 

He used it as a shop truck so it was only run around town and kept inside overnight.

After using it for several years it was "retired" and garaged but was used sparingly to run errands - hence the low mileage and rust free condition.

It was repainted in the original chocolate brown color many years ago and it still looks great.


The one thing that is missing is the console and the under dash plastic on both sides.

I don't know why these were removed and lost but I can use them if anyone has them. The dash is tan colored BTW


I don't have any pics yet but I will post some ASAP.

I think I know the panels you mean. I thought they mostly just hide the wiring. There are also vinyl spray paints out there if you can't get a color match. Maybe black so it isn't as noticeable?

Many trucks came without the passenger side tray in my experience. Even in vintage photos that tray is often not installed. Almost seems like an option?


I assume 2wd?


Center consoles with arm rest were an option. Or do you need the shifter console?


Pics you can use imgur or flickr or posimage.io.

Clean truck. Very nice. You never see bumpers and front valances that good of condition.


Please remove those hub caps immediately. Black Steelies look far superior to those any day. Even if you just rattle can some new black over dirt and rusted rims, it will still look better.
