The pedals and the seat and all are like new. The underhood area is very clean as the hood was not opened in a long time. Unfortunately it sat out under a pine tree stand for three yrs or more and got slime and dirt everywhere. The rust is mostly surface except in the bed and the bottom of the pass. door. The rubber mat in the bed held water inder it, as the drains were stuffed with pine straw.
We pulled pine needles out of every little hole.
The engine sounds like 18k when it idles. I never checked the mileage until we started pulling maintenace receipts out and they were like 1983 6000 miles, 1992 14,000 miles, 1995 17,000 miles, etc. The last was 18,100.
