it didnt really die..just kinda took it off the road and bought a new truck. had endless problems im 99% sure the thing had that many miles on it. towards the end had to put bit of money into it,whole clutch assembly, new plugs, wires, distributor, etc to keep it running. the motor always missed never ran on all cylinders, stalled quite a bit. even wires to the starter fried or something happened to it that had to run own electrical to starter and get it running..was rotting out on the fire wall even, had to weld and fix it cuz the pedal assembly was gettin pushed thru, thing was such a rot box. im pretty sure it had that many miles..dont know why it wouldnt..look at the truck and how old it is..
