906 285 0819 is the number
Yeah, I mentioned the phone number, but kind of afraid to call him just in case he didn't sell it... :oops:

Trucks are a weakness for me...my wife keeps telling me to get less registrations, not more...but it's a weakness... :roll:

If he did sell it, whoever got it is probably happier than a pig in $#!T, I know I would. :wink:

I was inspired by this truck when I seen it on eBay the first time. I thought it sold for 18k. I have decided to keep my express truck totally rust as this one is. I will have new wood in my bed and correct rear fenders.

Put a coat of non gloss clear on it to stop further rusting. Rust never sleeps. If it can't breathe it won't rust further.

I just wanted to comment about this AA express truck. I also wanted to know what happened to this truck. This truck was on ebay back in December of 2012. The reason I know this is that I was watching this truck like a hawk. I watched in amazement as the price got higher and higher. Also what was amazing is that this truck had the wrong fenders, incorrect spare tire carrier, no correct mounting hardware and also missing the rear fender spacers. ( some of the most expensive pieces to find and purchase). The truck still did look nice and I think that is why it was bid up so high. I kept a screenshot of the ending sale back in 2012 and this is what it said. :The sale ended on Dec 16 2012 at 19:00 PST. The location of this truck was in Yerington Nevada. There were 41 bids on this truck and the sale price was $18,100.00. Now fast forward to April 2018. This truck with a new owner was listed for sale again. The truck looked pretty much the same except the door signs and pin striping were painted on. One can only speculate as to why the truck was pulled from the auction. One thing I know is that this truck was being sold without a reserve. The bidding was around $10,000 when it was pulled. Once bids are received its kinda hard to stop the auction. But the auction did end early anyway. It would have been nice to see what the sale price would have gotten to. My feeling is that without a reserve price the truck was not receiving the bids to at least get most of his money back so he ended it early, and he still may have had to pay a fee to ebay even if he pulled it early with bids. Ebay has that in there rules for ending auctions early. They say they can still charge a listing fee.
