    Default I have Green Iron Disease

    Well my wife and daughter left me and my son unattended this past weekend while they were gone to a dance competition and the Green Iron Disease bit again. So across the state we went to pick up another 1967 M725 to add into the motorpool. I bought this one well under market value as it complete and 100% original with no missing pieces plus the owner had just done the brakes and a carb rebuild. Plus there was a load of extra parts to go with it including a set of NOS front fenders and things like spare water pump, fuel pumps, carb, gaskets, spark plugs, dist. and wire set and a front bumper. It runs and drives great with only a few small issues, the exhaust is broke at the flange in front of the muffler and the fuel tank has some scale and needs to be cleaned out (right now it's running on a secondary tank under one of the rear bench seats) I have a spare complete exhaust system and all new gaskets so I will be fixing that in the next day or so and then we will start in on the restoration of it. Should turn out fantastic since it's all original and complete.

    Thanks John, I don't know if I would call it charmed, but it's been pretty lucky. It also helps that I'm a picky buyer and I'll wait to find the best deal on the best vehicles. But when one of those deals pop up, I usually jump all over it. This one popped up on a Thursday and we were in the truck on the way to pick it up on Sunday.

    Seen your post on AR15.com first.

    Wow, You sure found a good one.
    So complete, and in amazing condition.

    Any idea what base it was used at?

    The previous owner didn't know where it came from and the owner before him had added some bogus 101st Airbourne markings. When I get a chance I will be gently sanding on the bumpers to see if I can find any original unit markings.

    And the number one reason why you fix a broken exhaust pipe or hangers right away on these trucks. The previous owner left the exhaust pipe broken at the muffler for years and here is the result. Broken off ear. Luckily I have a spare manifold in my parts bins but man this sucks.
