My credo
built, not bought
wonder how mine would fare on the trail ride, 2wd open 4.10s, winter tires (cause thats the only set of rims that I can use my ‘70’s hubcaps on) if theres a mild trail I can do, im all for it, but I may need to be drug out. prepared for that with hookup points, and tow strap (and I may toss in a chain)

YouTube it, the stock trail doesn’t look too bad.

You will be able to get around on a lot of the stock trails.
May have to stay away from the sand and hill climbs lol. But there are bypasses around most "hard" obstacles.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

The b-pillar reminds me of a Dodge. Maybe a mid/late 60's Dart, tho the body doesn't quite match my memory.
Darts had long skinny trunks. I figured it was something euro.

I intend on being there dragging my choptop for the trails. Right now I’m fighting engine trouble. Going to dig into the other 4.0 motors I have after work and see if one can be made to work. Otherwise I’ll be seeing if I can blow this one up on the trails 🤣

That would make more sense.
Upon further review it was Norway.
