**Question about why on trailer: First off, these are the most current photos. Second, because as stated there are NO working brakes and the truck was on it's way to a swap meet 60 miles away. Brakes are the only thing preventing this truck from driving. They are ALL there, need bleeding and adjustment and I have no time plus it's 115 degrees this time of year.
