Adopted another stray...

As some of you know, I seem to have a knack for finding abused PSDs, bringing them back to health, and giving them a good home. Found this 95 with some rust, minor frontal collision damage, a leaking fuel pump, and 2 weak injectors. The engine runs well on 6ish cylinders, no smoke or blow-by, I'll compression test before getting too serious. Interior is what you'd expect for a 16 year old truck, some wear and a few cracks. It is full load with power driver seat and deluxe visor, anti-theft, and keyless entry. I have no idea what I will do to it yet, but for $1200, I couldn't pass it up.

rebuild the injectors, fix the fuel leak, exchange some parts, and make it a reliable tow/plow rig, or resale it and make some $$$
