    Yeah, but it's solid enough that it could be restored; The options it has are what matters here...

    oh yeah, no doubt. While I can't say for sure I've never seen a reg cab with power windows, that's definitely an oddity.

    I would love to find one to flip, there was one sitting in the weeds for years on my street and finally saw a guy in the yard so I stopped, naturally someone else had stopped just prior to me and bought the damn thing.

    Definitely, you would be hard pressed to find a 2WD around here.

    No, but I can tell you that the current owner had to do some work on the frame to get the truck to pass state inspection...

    I paid 18k plus 2200 for the supercharger back in 1997. Supercharger bought is 1998.
    The trd supercharger came out in 1998,
    1997 was the year they updated the ECU to be compatible with the supercharger and was the only year a supercharger was
    compatible and available in the single cab. 1995-1996 the ECU will not work with the supercharger.
    It’s a rare truck but beat to hell with rust and I see red tape covering the bed box hiding rust.
    It’s a shame the east coast weather will destroy these trucks so easily especially with 180k miles.

    on the other hand my truck is west coast with no rust and supercharged and just crossed 700,000 :)

    still looks like it has less than 100k on it!

    If I owned the red truck, I'd buy a totaled truck from California with no frame damage, then fluid film the hell out of the donor frame and put it under the red truck; I would seriously give the red truck a full restoration!

    I bet the frame is Swiss cheese seeing that all the body panels are rusted out!

    The current owner says he welded the frame; I got a whole new frame as a result of relatively small rust hole on my 2010, so I would probably want to replace this one myself even if it meant going out of pocket to do so...

    Seals definitely will ALL need to be replaced.
    I just had my AC serviced last month because compressor locked up. With it locked up mine had material floating in the system.
    So they had to replace the condenser, compressor, dryer and said most the seals were leaking. This is the 2nd compressor I’ve replaced in 700,000 miles.
