More pictures are available upon request, I tried to take a picture of the stars/paint cracks on the hood. They turned out crappy due to flash from the camera. I will take a good picture and upload it when I can take it in the sun. I contacted the owner Tom Pagano and he said the star was probably from the type of hood prop I was using and he estimated the repair cost to be up to one thousand dollars.
This is a sweet ride which has received over 15 trophies during the two years I have shown it in the local shows. I would keep this truck however I am locating to Montana and I am not sure how much use I will have for it there.
I have tried to be as truthful regarding the condition of the truck as possible, the pictures are an indicator of the condition and should be considered as part of the description.
