I think you're probably right but I'd go over the thing with a fine toothed 
comb. Looking at the top of the rear wheel arches if it's not already rusted 
through the metal is probably super thin.

LOL, I suppose that is a "no rust" MA truck.

It amazes me what people are trying to get for old trucks, any old thing made 
in the last 40 years is $4000 or more even if it's all rusted out and not road 
worthy.

OTOH: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/429609375375672/
For those not on Facebook that's a 1953 Dodge dump truck for $1000. I'm HUGELY 
tempted by it for the vast northern estate but I keep telling myself I don't 
need that much project...

Re: [MBZ] Morons on w123 fakebook list

The stealerships are taking a blind eye toward who exactly is producing the 
junk they sell.   URO makes a number of parts which bear the magical seal of 
Mercedes Benz that pass through the dealer parts department.  Not under the 
cheep chinee marque, but passing as "Real Boys”.  Garbage, just like the new 
cars which are cobbled together out of Cheep Chinesium.  I was disgusted at the 
number of shite parts marked from the peoples republic of faked parts in the 
W220
