Why do people post stuff like this?

The trailer alone's worth more than that.

Took another look. Ad was posted over a month ago. Seems like something's fishy. At that price I can't believe they didn't sell the first day if it's legit.

To some, these are just yard waste to be cleaned up and disposed of, so we are probably lucky it was even put up for sale and not just scrapped.

And looking at the ad it might not have a title?

Posting for a friend?

Might have already sold, and someone selling again for the cash?

I'm gonna guess it it much rustier than it looks in the pictures, he is WWwwaayyyy out in the boonies, the guy does not answer any questions at all (so you ask if I can get more info and he answers: I am firm on $3500), and He is missing the title.

Not saying I would not be interested if he wasn't an entire Land of the free and home of the brave away from me, but I am guessing that is why it is still up.

I might give it a look see

Maybe I'll go check it out. According to the map it's not that far from me.

Don't know if you are looking for another project but those m715 jeeps are very cool and we only can dream about such truck on this side of the water.
So I hope you have good results with it!
