See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.Seller Notes:"two small dings directly behind the passenger door(kind of visable in pictures)--small,(about 1") separation of drivers side seat seam--very minor body imperfections, scratches, gravel chips--temp gauge works intermittingly--drivers side door seems to be miss-aligned just a hair, like it got tweaked just a bit by the wind. You probably didn't even notice it in the pictures but I'm telling you all I know."

1978 Dodge W200 Custom 4x4. Automatic with the 400 engine. Dana spicer 44 & Dana spicer 60. This truck belonged to an eccentric WWll vet, (who has since passed), who had this vehicle prepared as his "the end is here, lets get out of Dodge" vehicle. He had the back of this truck packed full with the things he would need when he saw the mushroom cloud over Boise. The truck just sat in covered storage most of the time, ready to go. There are thousands of dollars in receipts for things he had done to this truck, for whatever reason. He had a heavy duty radiator put in, overload leaf springs added to the rear, a two stage shift kit put in the transmission, new exhaust system, trailer brakes, heavy duty rear tow bumper and more. The truck is sitting on new Michelin 10 ply tires mounted on beautiful chromed steel rims and has 2 fairly new (95%+tread) mounted 8 ply Uniroyal tires in the back for spares along with two extra Dodge rims. The body is really straight with the exception of two small dings just behind the passenger door, kind of visable in the pictures. There are minor gravel chips and scratches you would expect to see on a truck that has been driven this many miles. (I am presently driving this truck occasionally and expect the mileage to be around 32,000 by the end of September).  He installed a heavy duty rear tow bumper (the original chrome bumper comes with the truck). The canopy was built and purchased in Boise; it is in exceptional condition for its age, is wired, has working lights inside and comes with two locks on the canopy door. The whole back door wall of the canopy unhinges and is removable if you have a need to carry something large. With the condition of the bed I have to assume this canopy has been on the truck pretty much since new. The interior of the truck is hard to believe. Its got a working real classy :) push button am radio. The glass is perfect. There is no a/c. There are a few very small places on the truck that look like touch up paint but I don't know. The following description and pictures are some of what was left in the vehicle when I bought it. I'm not listing everything, but most of what comes with it is listed.
In no particular order: spare water hoses, 2 thermostats, 3 distributer caps, rotors, condensers, points, heavy duty equalizer hitch, 3 carburetor rebuild kits, 2 five gallon gas cans (full), 2 hydraulic jacks, 2 lug wrenches, 1 case of quarts of 30 wt Pennzoil, 1 large box containing brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, 2 gallons of anti freeze and more, 3 control modules, jumper cables, 1 dip stick, 2 sets of spark plug wires, lots of spare belts, upper and lower radiator hoses, 3 radiator caps, Dodge service manual, carburetor service manual, 3 oil filters, 1 air filter, 3 alternators, 1 starter, 1 fuel pump, 3 fan clutches, spare fuses, various packs of bulbs, rolls of wire and I'm sure there is more.If you would like to see more pictures or come see the truck, let me know...Rick...208-866-1121...NO texting please. The successful high bidder must submit a $1000.00 non-refundable payment deposit with PAYPAL within 24 hours of the close of the auction to secure the vehicle. I will not take PAYPAL for final payment or balance. I will take U.S. or Wells Fargo certified bank check or cash in person only for final payment no exceptions. Buyer agrees to pay remaining balance due within 7 days of the close of the auction. All financial transactions must be completed before delivery of the vehicle. This truck is approximately 30 miles west of Boise, Idaho and is being sold in an as is condition. For anyone who flies into Boise to pick up this truck I will pick you up at the airport (baring unforeseen circumstances).

2013 Dodge Dart GT offers subtle menace in compact form

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 09:20:00 EST

Dodge has already shared all of the relevant information about its all-new 2013 Dart GT, but it wasn't until now that we've seen the car, live and in person. The slightly meaner front fascia and bigger wheels look great on the Dodge, and the red-on-black perforated seats are sporting in an aftermarket sort of way.
To recap: The Dart GT also gets a bit more power, using a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to make 184 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. A starting price of $20,995 will get you LED taillights, dual exhaust, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and a 7.0-inch TFT display.
Feel free to re-acquaint yourselves with the full Dodge Dart GT information in the press release below, or have a leisurely browse through our gallery of live images.

Mopar '13 Dart is a bruiser of a compact

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 11:28:00 EST

For the fourth year in a row, Mopar is offering a limited-production car decked with a plenty of add-ons and a unique look. This year's black-and-blue car is the Mopar '13 Dart, which was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show with the now-signature paint scheme. Like previous Mopar models, only 500 of the '13 Darts will be built. Past models include the Mopar '10 Challenger, Mopar '11 Charger and the Mopar '12 300.
The all-black Dart gets a brightly contrasting, offset blue stripe running the full length of the car, and other styling mods like the aero-tuned body kit, gloss black grille, wheels and mirror caps. Curiously, Mopar chose to stick with the Dart's standard headlights rather than the darker, smoked lights. The interior gets a similar black-and-blue treatment, but this unique cabin features a blue leather driver's seat to go along with the black leather seating for the rest of the passengers.
More than just a styling package, the Mopar '13 Dart also gets some performance and handling goodies to complement the Dart's turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, such as upgraded brakes with slotted rotors, a lowered suspension, retuned electric power steering and a "sport-tuned" exhaust system.

Hero gets his truck back better than new thanks to community support [w/video]

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 19:21:00 EST

You ever hear a story and start cringing before you hear the end because you know how it's going to turn out? That could very well have been the case with the story from a few weeks ago in West Valley City, Utah, where a 14-year-old kid stole his grandfather's Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride - through a park full of children. But instead it turned into a heart-warming tale of heroism and a community banding together to do what's right... and then some.
Bryson Rowley was that hero who identified the danger and, rather than sit idly by and watch the joyrider potentially run over a child, got into his truck and drove it into the menacing runaway hatchback. The collision caused some $7,500 to his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, but instead of getting stuck with the bill - one which his insurance may very well have refused to pay since the crash was, technically speaking, intentional - his community pitched in a helping hand.
Bryan Ellison, who owns West Valley Carstar with his brother, saw the news on television and wanted to help. So he brought Rowley a rental car, picked up his truck and brought it back to his auto repair shop. People from around the community donated parts, and when all was said and done, some $15,000 of work and upgrades were performed on the Ram that was returned to an overwhelmed Bryson Rowley better than new. Watch the video below for the full story.
