Default Question about 1200d

Just getting ready to go look at a 1970 1200d 4x4
Owner says the brakes are shot, has normal rust, itís a 4 speed, with 345.
anything to look for problem wise, how bad are parts to find for brakes.
Overall itís a pretty decent looking truck
Thanks

Rust areas:
Top of windshield area of cab,
Lower portion of windshield frame,
Pop hood, look at hood hinge attach area on front inner fenders,
Rocker boxes,
Cab floor, pull up carpet/floor covering,
Aft cab corners,
Forward cab corners and front fender junction area,
Air inlet to cab air-box area, below windshield on each side,
Pickup box and tailgate.

Brakes:
Should be easy to find parts for the 8-lug Dana axles.
Drum brakes front & rear.

If it doesn't run and drive, price it as a parts truck.

Congratulations. Just so you don't shoot the messenger, this forum is sponsored by IH Parts America, for the primary purpose of generating sales for IHPA. So, as one of the forum moderators, the only recommendation that I'm going to make is to check the web store using the link in the upper right portion of the screen. I've already snooped around for brake parts for your truck there and I didn't find much. Not all the store inventory is represented on the website, so you could always call IHPA during business hours. Outside of that, you're pretty much on your own with whatever well known parts retailer you prefer, just like everyone else. These rigs are obsolete, red-headed step-children. Sometimes you can find what you need from one of the big chains and sometimes not. Sometimes you can make a "quasi-universal" part work well enough to git-r-dun. Sometimes you've got to have stuff custom made. Brake hoses could fall into that last category. Sometimes your best hope is to source a good, used replacement part. Brake drums might fall into that category. Life is a little easier with a Scout II, because of their higher popularity and ownership. With the less popular or lower ownership full size rigs, more creativity, persistence and patience is required. I know you were hoping for a more simple and straight forward answer, but that just isn't the reality of IH ownership. Sourcing certain parts for these things can be a tough road to hoe.
