This article makes me feel good. Pretty rare in that grey color too. Plus all the miles that the owner has enjoyed on the road.He even beats my milage. :wink2:
He doesn't beat mine. I have a similar story with 35 years of owning my '72 except I never sold mine. I have about 380,000 total miles according to the admittedly not so terribly accurate odometer.

What is amazing about this story is that after all those years and miles and having done such extensive rust repairs and body restoration he has never touched the bottom end of the engine or transmission? That sort of leaves me scratching my head because nothing beats the joy I experienced with a completely rebuilt motor and new synchros. I know the lower end is pretty stout but after 300,000 miles it has got to be pretty tired. These things aren't diesels.
