1965 Dodge Power Wagon Fire Truck, 250 gpm pump, equipment for fighting wildfires, or serving beer. Two seperate tanks, combined hold 150 Gallons of water, or two half barrels of beer. Tanks are insulated for ice and beverage storage, water, or both. Truck was refurbished in 2005. Paint is substantially good, but needs touch-up on floor areas. The hood and fenders can be buffed back to full color. All equipment shown stays with the truck and is in great shape. Tires are 80%, standard 9.00-16.00 Good Year Hi-Miler mud and snows with a "D" range. The 16,930 miles are original miles. All major components (engine, trans, tranfer case, etc) are the original components that were on the truck when it was built. I am the second owner of the truck, it came to directly from the fire company that was the original owner. The truck is geared low, (5.83 gears) and does a max speed of 45mph. The engine runs like a top once it warms up. No engine issues at all. The carb may need a rebuild at some point, but works fine otherwise. The clutch and tranmission are excellent, it shifts very smoothly, if you know how to drive a Power Wagon. (standard NP435 with syncros) Brakes are good, but bleed down if the truck is not run after about a month. The brake booster is not original to the truck and was added before I owned it, but is needed to stop it when fully loaded. (the truck is heavy!) Winch and PTO work excellent, it has been used to move things and pull things, but never the truck itself since I have owned it. I did not take this truck off road since I have owned it, and has been cared for in a great way. It has been moved outside and needs to be stored inside somewhere else, and that's why I am selling it. No room anymore. The driver's seat will need to be rebuilt, as will the bottom cushion for that seat. The truck will need a few dabs of paint here and there, but is ready for any parade, picnic, show, or general task requiring a strong truck with a winch. Included in the sale are 2-18 foot chains with hooks,(10k lbs) and 8k lbs snatch block. Winch has 150+ feet of 7/16 wire rope. Siren works good, but has no siren brake. Locking hubs on the front axle make the drive alot better, they are included. The truck has been a big hit at concerts in Philadelphia, Eagles games, fire company wet-downs and musters, benefits of all sorts, the list goes on. I will assist in any way for transportation of the truck, but expences and arrangements are entirely on the buyer. The truck is available for inspection by appointment ONLY. Do NOT show up expecting to see it when I am not here! Read this part again to be sure you understand! Any questions or appointments can be forwarded to me through ebay, or my phone number.....609-859-5433. I hope this truck finds a good home, good luck bidding. Last note....the truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.

We won't beat around the bush: The all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger is not a brand new car. This generation launched in 2011, AWD models and all. But for 2013, Chrysler has added an optional sport package to the AWD model, available with both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the sweet, sweet 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The upgrades for this new sport pack are mainly cosmetic; a gloss black grille, new 19-inch alloy wheels and body-colored rear spoiler make up the list of exterior changes. Inside, there are new sport seats and paddle shifters, and the eight-speed automatic transmission has been reflashed for better performance.

But because vehicles like the Dodge Charger mainly stick out in our minds as being rear-drive bruisers, Chrysler wanted to give us the opportunity to test out the LX platform's foul-weather prowess. And perhaps no place more appropriate to test such a system was way up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the dead of winter.
With the exception of some notable truck and van introductions, Chrysler brands have tended to use the Chicago Auto Show to bring out new special editions, pimp their aftermarket parts support or indulge in the occasional flight of fancy. That plan is holding true for 2014, as well. Cases in point are these new Satin Vapor Editions of the 2014-model-year Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 - all from SRT.

The Satin Vapor name may sound like a failed 1970s glam-rock band, or a pseudo-gynecological diagnosis from the Old West, but is, in fact, pretty much a tape-and-trim package for this trio of hi-po Mopars. 300, Challenger and Charger alike come shod with 20-inch aluminum wheels finished in Black Satin Vapor Chrome, and are accented with Satin Black bits aplenty. The 300 gets blacked-out mirrors, spoiler and roof; the Challenger applies it to mirrors and its fuel door; while the Charger has the stuff covering its roof, hood and Super Bee tail graphic.
Interiors of the cars have been mildly updated as well, with all three getting some combination of Nappa leather, ultra-suede and carbon-fiberish finishes.
Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.
This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
