The Dents we find

Thought it may be a good idea to have a thread that was for the trucks we find on ebay, CL, local classifieds, other sites, etc. That way we can all drool over them, discuss what's wrong with them and generally just talk about the truck, that way we can cut down on the individual threads and have them all in one place. I'll get this thing started...


Here are a few that are over, but I thought they were worthy:

This truck is absolutely GOOOOOOOOORGEOUS, not so sure how I feel about the front bumper though, and it's in KNOXVILLE:

Here's another TN truck, thought it was nice, but the guy is whacked if he thinks he's gonna get 10k for it...it ain't that nice:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1979-...1%7C240%3A1318

Whoops...on edit found a new auction for the second link I posted, the guy still wants too much:

Just found everyone's favorite dentside seller, and he's selling a Bronco, I'll defer this to Scott, seeing as I can't tear apart a Bronco as well as I can a truck:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1979-...1%7C240%3A1308


I've gotta question the factory engine with a 4 core radiator...I consider the radiator part of the engine...and the SC radiator was the biggest and had 3 cores. Also gotta question the crow hop he's talking about...obviously not lifted properly. Anyone have anything else to add...looks like an alright Bronco to me...still don't like the guy though.

Not a 2by fan...but this crew looks amazing:

Hey Scott...too bad you already found your crew...haha...it's really not your style:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1978-...1%7C240%3A1318

I gotta admit I really like it, I would have to swap rims and tires though...and probably get an actual step bumper on the rear.

That first green crewcab is very nice. But there are some things I don't like. I don't like the color combo on the inside. I'm not too sure about the dash bezel. The front tires look like they tow out a bit (is that normal). Also, I'm not crazy about the front and rear bumpers. But, a nice truck indeed. I'll get back to some of the other trucks.

I guess I didn't really notice those things...I was just blown away by the exterior. But going back now, thanks for bursting that bubble Buck. But you're right, the interior doesn't really match...dash pad is light tan, and the carpet looks like a medium brown. As for the dash bezel...that grey is definitely outta place. You're right about the tires, and no, that isn't normal. I guess it's more of a truck with toooooons of potential, most of the hard work has already been done.

That blue crew is extremely nice except for the wheels. I'd definitely change those, but what a truck.

Ben I didn't mean to burst your bubble about that green one. I really like the exterior paint job on that one. I probably wouldn't have noticed what I did except there seemed to be multiple pics that were the same so when looking at them, just noticed a few things.

The Green one. My favorite color. But as you guys said, the interior is kinda funky. What is with the lighter being inserted in the dash next to where it is supposed to be?..
