1953 Dodge D250 – Gary C.

August 11, 2020 | Tags: other

Project 53 I grew up on a small farm in South Texas. The farm life teaches you things even if you are not interested in learning. The constant repair of equipment requires welding, fabrication of non existence parts and constant mechanical work. I can't say that I always liked it but little did I know where it was going to lead me. I had the Camaro’s, mustangs and many other cars during my life. I even ended up co owning a circle track car and was crew chief on that asphalt burner where we just raced local tracks never ... read more >>

1979 Dodge Warlock I'd been trying to find a Warlock for years, every time I found one and contacted the seller it would already be sold. I finally found one close to me, hurriedly got in touch with the seller, went to look at it and handed him cash. The truck had a 360 that wasn't running, the right fender and front bumper were damaged, both front floors needed replaced, someone had stolen the seats out of it. So, I've been working on it for a little while now, got the 360 running (unhooked ground wire was all it ... read more >>

1982 Dodge D150 – Jo G.

Back To It’s Glory A fellow employee's husband purchased the truck new in 82. The BASIC options were a slant 6 with an automatic, PS and power brakes. At later date we used a 318 and installed till I took ownership of the tired truck in late 2018. Thinking I would just sell the truck and having that chance fall through. I decided to rebuild it and that’s when it all broke loose. Truck had to be taken all the way down with floor boards being replaced as well as a section of the roof cause of rust. Luckily ... read more >>

1986 Dodge D-100 Restored Back to Life I purchased this ole truck in 2016 for $700.00. It was a total mess. The motor was locked up and had a bad transmission in it so, I decided to start from the ground up in doing a complete restoration. It has been a real work in progress from day one. I am so glad I could get the parts I needed from LMC. Everything has been replaced except the front and back bumper which I left to remind me of what the ole truck was like before I started... It was ... read more >>

1979 DODGE LITTLE RED EXPRESS TRUCK Mine has been a long outstanding love story ever since these trucks first came into production and I tried to get my Dad to sell me one new from a Mopar dealership where he was a salesman. It was not to be at that time as he convinced me that it was not a practical truck. However I never lost interest in them. Finally about 6 years ago an opportunity to full fill my dream came up and I bought one that only needed minor cosmetic work to bring it up to my ... read more >>

I purchased my truck new in 2001 from a local dealer. The truck had all of the amenities that I wanted and was even my favorite color. It was used as a farm truck for almost 20 years and not once did it let me down. I so love this truck that I did a restoration with many new updates. All the dents were ironed out with new two stage paint and numerous parts replaced. New sound system for Sirius radio, navigation, phone and back up camera. The truck has more features on it then when it was new. ... read more >>

I bought a 1986 Dodge Ram D150 2wd. It used to be red outside but the person I bought it from painted it silver. Not bad. The interior is red. It has a 318 cu. In. Engine with a 2bbl carburetor. Runs great. It has around 98,000 original miles on it. It has aluminum after market rims on it wit Goodyear Wrangler tires on it. The person that owned it put lowering springs on the front.

Gator's 1998 Ram Survivor I've been a Mopar guy since I saw my first Road Runner in 1968 at the age of 14. Many years and many Mopars later, in 2009 we bought this 1998 Ram with a 5.2 and 130,000 miles. After having her checked out, we found that she had good bones and was solid throughout. Knowing I didn't have 40 grand for a road runner, I decided to turn my focus to the Mopar in front of me and make her MINE! I named her the survivor cause' she's 22 years old and still here, and ... read more >>

1979 Dodge Power Wagon – Suzanne & Matt C.

July 3, 2020 | Tags: DC

Suzanne's 1979 Dodge Power Wagon 150 We bought the truck in an online auction in Washington State and shipped it to our home in Long Island New York. We bought it to build a Macho Wagon tribute truck. I built a similar truck in the late 80's that Suzanne saw a picture of and wanted to build one for herself. I rebuilt the 318 engine that came in the truck with 360 heads, an aftermarket cam and a 340 intake with an Edelbrock performer carburetor. It has a torqueflite trans and 4.10 gears with 33"x 10.5" tires. The paint ... read more >>

Second Gen. "Saved a Survivor" I drove 5 hours to Baltimore and purchased this low mile, 6-speed manual, Cummins 2500 on February 29, 2020. The pictures and information the owner sent me, seemed to good to be true. He said this truck had 112,000 miles never had any body work done prior and was 100% rust free, with all original panels! The inside of the fenders looked as clean as the outside! The one big issue with the truck was typical "Dodge Clear-coat/paint peel problems." She was in dire need of a small "face-lift." A co-worker of mine offered ... read more >>
