Summary:

The future is bright

Faults:

This truck is so cool. It's the only one I have ever seen on the road. A one of a kind hotrod.

The clutch slips, the rear differential leaks, brakes are bad, hood spring is sprung, points are bad, and there's rust in the tank.

A dented left front corner panel, and the third coat of paint is peeling off.

Other than that, she's cherry.

General Comments:

OK, so it's an old truck with nice wheels, but I love it and someday I will have it looking and running like an American hotrod should. One of a kind.

These are pretty cool trucks, the old Dodge's. I saw many, many of them still in service in Bolivia after 30 years of work! This is actually the truck that first impressed me about Dodge trucks. When I was younger, I saw a guy with a '66 Dodge pickup, mounted on 2 1/2 ton Dodge military axles, climb the side of a gravel pit, with small trees hanging off the frame the whole way, and he only had a 318 in it! This was after he'd driven through a swamp with mud up to the door handles, knocking down tamarack trees the whole way. These things are tanks!

Previous carDodge Ram Pickup

Summary:

The only pickup I will ever drive is a Dodge

Faults:

Replaced clutch and break master cylinder.

Replaced clutch and throughout bearing.

Replaced starter.

Replaced alternator twice.

Engine was freshly rebuilt when I bought it at 200,000 miles.

Replaced clutch slave cylinder.

General Comments:

This truck will pull nearly anything.

It has a 3 speed manual tranny, so when your on the highway the engine is wrapped up high.

It handles like a tank and starts with ease when it's -10 outside.

It's noisy on the highway and having no ac it is a sweat box in the heat.

If you want something reliable then get something with a 225 slant 6.

I also have a 1967 Dodge 100 with a 225, and when my 94 Dodge broke down in the middle of a Kansas snow storm (-14 actual temp), went for the old truck that had been sitting for 4 months and she fired right up on the 2nd try, and drove through about 15" of snow to pull the Ram home. Love this truck!

Summary:

An amazingly reliable work horse!

Faults:

Nothing ever broke!!!

General Comments:

Bought this old truck for $900 in 1980. Needed money in 1985 and sold it to a friend of mine 5 years later for $995. Paul had it until about 1995 and sold it for $995. It had over 350,000 miles on it and was burning a little oil. Paul had replaced the alternator about 1990 and the brake shoes in 1988. The guy Paul sold it to did a ring and valve job and still drives it. I'll buy it from him if he ever decides to sell it.

Summary:

Better than most Chevy and Ford of same vintage

Faults:

Body is a bit rusty. Doors fit poorly. Engine required overhaul. Brakes needed work. What do you expect from a 30 plus year old truck?

General Comments:

Once the repairs were completed, the truck runs fine. Starts in all weather, very good on snowy roads at a reasonable speed. Heater is not enough for the still leaky cab, I have more work to do... The "close ratio" 4 speed is interesting. Shifts perfectly, but the "granny low" is not quite what you would expect. Low enough to pull, but not the creeper gear I was expecting. 3rd gear is higher than a normal 4 speed as well, 60 mph can be maintained up any hill.
