Up for sale is a 1968 3/4 ton 4-speed vintage Power Wagon with factory LU2 Braden PTO winch. The truck is equipped with Dana 44 front axle and Dana 60 rear. I bought this truck from the 2nd owner. They bought the truck in 1970 and was used on their ranch in Elbert, Colorado. When they bought the truck, they had Dodge install the Braden winch. The truck was originally a 318 V8 but was replaced with a big block 400 in the 80's. The truck had been sitting for quite a few years before I purchased it. I put in a new starter and the engine runs very good; does not smoke and holds great oil pressure ( 80 psi). Obviously, it will need tune-up parts, gas tank and lines flushed. The engine has an old school Offenhauser intake manifold and Holley 4-barrel carb. Brakes and hydraulic clutch will need work (I can bleed brakes and clutch to move the truck). Unfortunately, when the big block 400 was put in the truck, they did not put the pto drive shaft for the winch back on the truck and was miss-placed a few years later and was lost. I do have the drive unit that mounts to the transfer case but no pto shaft and no lever to engage the drive unit (see pics). The pto drive shaft can be made along with the lever. This Power Wagon has the usual cab rust that these trucks have. The rockers, floor boards and three of the cab mounts (driver's side, rear cab mount is good and solid) have rust - nothing to extreme. The fenders, doors, cowl, firewall, radiator support and frame rails are all rust free. For the trucks age the body is nice and straight. The only sizable damage is the passenger fender and is definitely repairable. All glass is remarkably in very good condition for its age. This truck had an old flatbed on it that I took off and scrapped. So as you can see in the pics, there is no bed. There are still plenty of 2-wheel drive D100's and D200's parts trucks out there, and a bed can be obtained. This is a very good foundation for a nice restoration project on a truck that is getting very hard to find. I hate to sell this truck, but I have to finish another project that is close to completion. I will be answering any emails in the evening. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. Please don't ask what the reserve is; it is very reasonable. If you like the truck, please just bid. I will accept Pay Pal only if the buyer agrees to pay the Pay Pal fees; otherwise cash on pickup. $200. deposit due within 48-hours after end of auction. Thanks for looking.
With its troubling sales figures, the newly rechristened SRT Dodge Viper needs to come out swinging for 2015. To do that, Dodge has made a number of tweaks and changes that will hopefully carry the V10-powered sports car into more successful days.
First up for 2015 is a new GT model, which aims to marry the reasonable price of the base car with the adjustable suspension and trick stability control program of the GTS model. The GT also sports a cabin that's covered in Alcantara suede and Nappa leather as standard.
Also new for 2015 is the SRT TA 2.0 Special Edition, which expands on last year's Viper TA by adding new aerodynamic bits and bobs, including a larger rear wing, which ups downforce at 150 miles per hour from 278 pounds to 400 pounds.
Ladies and gentlemen, let's get the most salient bit of information out of the way right off the bat: $63,995*. That's the amount of money Dodge dealers will be asking for (at the very least, naturally) for a 2015 Charger Hellcat (*plus $995 for destination on all pricing figures). That rather reasonable sum will bring home its buyer a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine boasting a supercharger to post such gaudy figures as 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, leading to a top speed of 204 miles per hour to go along with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.0 seconds.
With that out of the way, the rest of the 2015 Dodge Charger pricing information breaks down as follows: $27,995 will deliver a sedan with a 292-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Moving up one step of the ladder nets the buyer an SXT model with the same engine, but a nicer chunk of technology and optional equipment for a $2,000 premium. All-wheel drive adds another $3,000. Hemi V8-powered R/T models now boast an eight-speed transmission bolted to the same well-loved 370-horsepower engine as before, for a base price of $32,995.
The SRT 392 model that had hitherto been the top-performing Charger brings with it an asking price of $47,385 while bargain hunters can equip a Charger R/T Scat Pack machine with that same 485-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi, albeit with somewhat less posh interior bits and pieces, the removal of the 392's adjustable suspension and hi-po wheel and tire package for $39,995.
The reborn Dodge Challenger might be getting a bit long in the tooth, having been on the market in its current form since 2008, but Chrysler isn't going to give up on its brutish, full-size two-door just yet. For this year's SEMA Show, the Challenger will be getting a new Mopar edition, as well as a retro-cool shaker hood on the 5.7-liter, Hemi-equipped R/T models.
As we mentioned last night, the Shaker Package will cost $2,500, but includes the Super Track Pak (new steering rack, brake linings, upgraded shocks and 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires), a $595 option on its own. The shaker hood result in a performance bump of any kind, but the blacked-out, pop-up scoop is a nifty feature that hasn't been seen on a production car since the Ford Mustang Mach 1 in the early 2000s.
The Mopar '14 Challenger (pictured right) follows the cues of previous Mopar Editions, which have included the 2010 Challenger, 2011 Charger, 2012 300 and 2013 Dart. Only 100 Mopar '14 Challengers will be produced, and they'll include the new shaker hood, Mopar's distinctive blue graphics and wheels, and whatever is pilfered from the accessory catalog.
