THE GOOD= Drives like a mountain goat on espresso! We tore up some hills here this summer in the high Uintah mountains, mudding, trailing etc, good times.Folding the windshield down is a blast. It really lets you feel like your flying. Sounds quiet enough to drive in town, then you can put the stinger tip on for even more speed and a huuuuuge sound. Shifts great, starts in quick second, runs all day! Real head turner, shiny and clean. %100 Street legal too! Enjoy year round (depending on where you live of course). It hooks up to your tow ball, and away you go. It's ready to mount off road lights too, just bolt and go, check the pics.

THE MEH=Needs oil temp gauge replaced, it was disabled for the hp cooling fan. ($40) Needs two bolts to re attach windshield wipers.( I took them off when we were trailing, and forgot where I put the bolts ($5) Other than that, it will need a carb adjustment if you don't live at 8000 feet above sea level like us. Simple turning of a screw.

= NO headaches cruising/trailing. No huge surprises and setbacks on delivery. You get what you see, and vice verse.

I have the title in hand and ready to sign directly to you. I AM NOT selling it locally, so THIS auction is it. I require a $500 deposit at auction close. Bank transfer or personal check, doesn't matter to me, either way it doesn't move until funding is complete. Buyer arranges transportation. I am willing to store it for up to 30 days, after that, we can arrange it to be stored, or I can store it in my other garage for a small fee temporarily.

I do not do this for a living, my car collecting days are slowing down. You'll love this buggy, we've enjoyed it. Good luck, and good bidding!

I almost forgot to mention that we just had a brand new King Pin front-end kit installed professionally as well. Zero miles on it. Really improves handling and ride. Also, You'll find the reserve price close to start and very fair. Good luck!
