Convertible '74 Repu For Sale

Located in western Montana. Body is in decent shape, minor dings and no rust. Battery compartment in good shape. Before my hubby removed the tranny to check on the clutch, truck ran great. Well, the clutch was fine, but the tranny is still in the bed of the truck. We don't have time or $$ to restore. Pretty sure the tranny problem is a slave cylinder. Interior needs carpet, mirrors, radio. Floor pan in good shape. Top is in good shape, but have new vinyl for it. The bucket seats have been replaced with the original bench seat.

This would be an awesome project, but with 9 kids, there's just not enough time or money to give this the attention it deserves. We hope it can go to a good home!

$1500.00 OBO

Hmmm..I think that's really pretty cool! Pics of the interior would help you, though.
Just picturing someone in the process of cutting off that top is gonna give me nightmares, though.

I will post pictures of the interior and engine...

I need to get my son's camera, mine's not behaving itself. The body really looks like the top was factory, although according to those who must know, it can't be. I will try to get a close up of the front with no top.

Back in the 70's there were several companies offering kits for all brands of "mini trucks" as they were called. They all had plastic molding to fill the gaps on the cab sides and came with a vinyl top as well, some also had plastic moldings and fittings, for the now removed top, so it could be put back on in the winter. Most of these kits looked pretty good when finished and back then the REPU wasn't a rarity, as you could easily see an average of 5 per day. What really kills the REPU as a Vert is the use of all the interior plastics, The constant exposure to the elements is just too hard on them, a really good Vert would have all metals, wood, canvas for interior materials but no plastic.

Still waiting on the camera

But I am almost positive that there was no plastic used. It's really hard to tell that it was not an assembly line convertible. Hopefully I will get my hands on the camera by tomorrow. Otherwise, I'll take my camera phone out there!
