Sims Andrecht Complete vintage old 70's pig skateboard

This auction is a fundraiser to pay for the collectors medical bills. The owner of this board contracted Lyme disease and lost his ability to ride a skateboard (or even walk for that matter), and he has been undergoing extensive treatments for the last 6 or 7 years. He has long been financially exhausted and has now come to the point that he is willing to part with his collection in order to pay some of the medical expense. Please check my other listings for other skateboards collectibles. The item for sale in this auction is a late 1970's Sims Andrecht pig. It is black with beveled rails, with silver foil inlaid in the recessed rails with the Sims logo. It has a taper at the tail and wheel wells. The deck is 11"1/8 at it's widest point. This board is well used and has some character. The plastic mini rails are off-set, and the tail guard is in decent shape. The trucks have Independent base plates, the front truck is narrower than the back and the hanger shapes are different. My knowledge of 70 era trucks is limited, but they look like they could be two different stages of Indys. The wheels are Alva - 2 yellow and 2 red, wide and conical about 2"1/4 wide. The bearings are still rolling. T are two small stickers, one Indy sticker and a paper one that is indistinguishable. The board has a rasta color theme with a mix of bushings,

I prefer to ship in the United States only because International shipping is more that buyers usually are willing to pay. Shipping is $15 for Parcel post, or $25 for Priority with Insurance/confirmation. The package weighs 8 pounds+/- so please be aware I am trying to be fair on the shipping. As the selller I am making no money on this transaction, it is a benefit auction for a sick friend. Please bid responsibly.
