My dad had 4 of them at one time in the 70s. He used them as service trucks for his HVAC company. They only lasted adout 1 1/2 yrs due to rusting of the frame and body.Engines were good but rust was bad. He then switched to the Dodge Ram pickups (same size basicly) and had the same result, rust. The couriers had good gas mileage. they were sticks. Roger.
