1982 Dodge D150 Custom 225 Slant 6 from North America
The best truck I've ever owned
Clutch linkage weld snapped after 25 years.
If you're looking for an old beast that will never let you down, then this is the truck for you.
I got the truck from my stepfather about a year ago, and the only thing I had to do to it was have the clutch pivot arm re-welded because the weld failed.
The 225 Slant 6 was just rebuilt in 2003, and runs like a clock. The Hurst 4 Speed trans. is what really tops it off though; a little hard to get used to at first, but once you get it you'll never get stuck. For example, last winter it snowed like 1 foot overnight, and I didn't even have to shovel out the tires. I just warmed her up, put her in 1st and it climbed out like it had tank tracks.
I plan on getting something a little better on gas for work, but I'm going to restore the truck to show quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
