Well I just got super lucky and bought a Mint 1985 4 door truck.
Life took a change and I had a little boy ( yippee I am a DAD )but
the STD Cab was not going to cut it anymore with the family
growing.. so I had to make some decisions..
1st idea: get an ext Cab truck and convert mine to ext cab..
2nd idea: get a 4 door crew cab and convert that to diesel and run
that. They are Hard to find.
3rd idea: sell my STD cab and buy a newer truck with back seats..
- So I got a EXT cab but it needed a lot of work and it would not
fit on my frame easily.. so that was not going to work.
- So I listed my truck for sale. I had a bunch of tire kickers but
no one would settle on a price or come up with money, then diesel
fuel raised to $4.00 a gallon and all the calls stopped.
At this point I was getting irritated and wondered if this would
work out or not. or would I be stuck with STD cab.
then out of the blew a friend sends me a link to a 4 door Dodge for
sale but with no pics.. so I contacted guy.. and he still had the 4
door.. WOW. so eventually he sent me pics and it took a few weeks to
get it, but man I am so HAPPY.. this TRUCK is MINT.
So the project plan is to take the drive train out of my STD Cab CTD
and put it into this 4 Door Dodge.
So here are pics of my new project..
towing the truck home:
yes the Chevy has a Cummins :)
Here are other pics.
