My grandson just turned 16 and now wants to take drivers test in my 740GLE D24T. This scares me cause he hasn't been wrking on the 544 and I'm afraid he's gonna want to keep borrowing the 740. I tkink I'm gonna have to put my foot down and insist he gets his civic on the road. I love my tractor too much to risk having it wrecked. Pics of said cars r back farther.

My daughter's old 1989 740GL with a stick is for sale in Hinton. Less than 300K, 2 sets of tires and rims for $800.

Thanks but he loves the diesel, wants one of his own as well as the Corolla AE86 his dad told him he could have when graduated. It's gradually being updated. Has GT suspension all the way around now but looking for a tranny and DOHC engine for it, period pieces of course. We have a few 740s for sale down here, running and not too bad shape.
