Ran across this Luv “Mikado” in San Antonio. Waiting for the guy to call about selling it. Looks rough. Not been registered in 10 years. Couldn’t get very good photos because it was parked between two cars. Haven’t seen under it or under the hood yet. Any first impressions from anyone just from these photos?

Update: finally spoke with owner. He said the body and frame are still intact with surface rust only. Said the engine is not seized. Was running fine 8 years ago when his dad hit something on the highway that broke the timing chain cover and timing chain. Said he covered the truck and never tried to get it repaired. Is that a hard part to find or fabricate?

Plan on replacing the motor. If the chain broke while the motor was running it probably had some piston to valve contact.

It looks like it is all there. I would buy it if the price was right. Surface rust is still rust but the rockers look pretty good. Lift up the carpet and look at the floors. The reality is there are fewer Luv's around and you have to grab them when you see them. You can swap in whatever you want for the motor. 8)
