Got it fix bulbs and what should I do to the headlight bar? No, thanks for telling me.

As you say, the front wheels aren't the correct ones. I am not sure how much of a turn off that would be to a buyer, but if you paint them black, it may not be as noticeable.

I would sell it as is-looks fine and the buyer can make their own adjustments....

As others have said. "Paint the wheels black", possibly replace the headlights but give it a "hundred dollar" detailing and run 'er on the auction block.

You can never tell but the potential buyer may want a little Patina. Fix those ugly headlights even if you just put in the correct lens and reflector and not wire them up.

The front wheels aren't correct but for my use, I would rather have them than the original split rims. Split rims are DANE JUS and most are scaired to work with them. The wheels look close enough that I didn't notice it until it was mentioned. If you were close by I would trade you the correct wheels for them.

When I worked in a gas station years ago, we would sometimes work with split rims. I was told that truck tire shops had a wire cage that would go around them to protect the guys that worked on them.

That's basically a good looking truck (except the headlights & wheels). I certainly wouldn't mind driving it as is. What are you hoping to get for it?

I was thinking about putting them in the back and maybe reversing them. Defently going to go black after many suggestions. Figure the rear would be better with beefer backs

I thought about that, but seems like most have said the wheels should be painted black.

Yeah, going to do the light lens. Are you talking about the reflector on the front bumper

Ya got me. Check eBay and Hemmings, and perhaps the MAFCA website classifieds. I'd expect low to mid teens, unless there's something wrong not obvious from the photos.

Well, the speedo and gas gauge don't work, and the lights don't ether.
