THE GOOD:  There is a lot of life left in this classic beast. Could be the perfect rock crawler or hunting rig you've been looking for. Don't let the looks fool you. It's got the lift, it's 4-wheel drive, it's got the muscle and it has THE LOOK. It will require some sweat and love to get it off-road worthy, but it's begging you to take on the task. 
The engine runs, when it has a fuel source (see below) and in addition to the truck, you'll get a built 360 block (only, no heads) that's ready to drop in when/if necessary. It's a project, but a worthwhile one...and, there's a little bit of metal that still has some paint on it. ;)

THE BAD: There is a little bit of a rust issue as can be seen in the pictures. For most crawler enthusiasts, this is not a care at all. The fuel tank was removed due to the rot and therefore no longer runs. However, it was told to me that when hooking fuel up to the engine it runs really well. It technically is not 4-wheel drive until you add a proper length front driveline. When the lift was added, the stock driveline was no longer able to do its job. The windshield has a crack, but the glass is all there on this rig. Interior is fairly sunbeaten, and the headliner is gone. The rear window crank does not appear to roll the window down and the exterior handle is broken.  Do NOT think you are driving on these tires....they are goners!...beside, you won't be able to stop since there appears to be no braking power currently. So yes, there's a few challenges here, but nothing an industrious person couldn't handle. Once you got it to where it's needed you'll have everyone's attention! Great bones for rock crawler or hunting rig and even better with the not-so-great body.
