70 Ford SMB

Hi;

This Ford popped up in a search:

http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/car ... 12761.html

Check out the interior!

No affiliation, relation, or destination.

Regards,

Gavin

Nice looking rig for its age. Looks well maintained.

Re: 70 Ford SMB

All it needs is an original “Pathfinder” 4x4 conversion kit and its set!

Re: 70 Ford SMB

“Advanced 4x4” door jamb stickers from back then are also the same, I wonder if it has anything to do with a vehicle modifier legal requirement or did they just buy decals in bulk to save money?

Re: 70 Ford SMB

I don't find the logo questionable in any way, obviously original, just wondering if it is time for a graphics change/update

Mebbe a little New Logo contest on the Forum, sponsored by SMB with a nice prize to the finalist

Aaight, aaight, I'll go back to work now
