Here is a 1942 dodge powerwagon WC truck that I use hauling my hay wagon. It started life as a military vehicle open cab truck. It is 4  wheel drive and it does work. It is equiped with the 4:89 gears both front and rear. I  installed a closed cab from a 1947 dodge truck and a homemade 6 foot by 6 foot flatbed. This truck is not stock but modifiied with the following: The engine is a Chevrolet 350 Small block bored .030 with a RV cam and roller rockers. Sitting on top is an Elderbrock carb. and intake.There are two electric fans in front of the original radiator to keep it cool aswell as a transmission cooler to keep the trans. cool. It has side pipe mufflers mounted behind the cab as stacks. It has electronic ignition and a 350 turbo automatic transmission with shift kit tied to the original single speed transfer case. I reinstalled the original hand parking brake back on it when doing the conversion.I installed power brakes(the booster and master cylinder are off a 1997 dodge 1500) on the truck with disc. brakes on the front (1978 chevrolet calipers and rotors)and used the original 14 inch drum brakes on the rear. It also has power steering but the steering is a little loose and leaking  from the gear box. The steering linkages are from a M37 military truck.I machined a custom dash cluster and used 1950's dodge passenger car gauges(they are not hooked up). The seats are from a 1991 honda crx and aren't mounted  down. It has a 11 gallon fuel cell mounted under the back of the bed with an access  through the bed. The battery box  is also under the bed behind the cab.The tachometer works as well as the 1942 GMC heater box and the roll out windshield. The head lights and tail lights work aswell  as do the blackout lights although the blackout lights aren't hooked up.The tires are about worn out and the driverside outer rear tire has a bad valve stem so it doesn't hold air for very long. This is not a new truck it does have age on it as it is a 71 year old truck.There is the usual rust associated with a truck this old. There aren't any turn signals on it as it isn't street legal.This truck doesn't have a title and is for sell as is. I reserve the right to cancel this auction at any time as I also have it forsale localy. Winning bidder is responsible for pick up and transporting it. I require $1000.00 deposit within 24 hours of auction end and full payment  Required within 7 days of auction close.

2014 Dodge Durango

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 14:59:00 EST

Say what you want about the Dodge Durango, but ever since it came on the scene in 1998, it has occupied its own niche in the SUV market - not too small, not too big, tough, able, not always the best on the road and not always the best off-road. If it were a football player, it would be a tight-end that can block and catch. If it were a hamburger - a double burger with cheese and bacon, but not the Whopper.
As part of a mid-cycle upgrade for what was already a very capable SUV that Chrysler introduced in 2011, and built on the same platform as the Mercedes GL-Class and Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2014 Durango has gotten some refinements worth noting that have cleaned up its tailoring and toned up its body and powerplant. The result is an SUV that shows itself to be a very good value in a category full of sticker prices that can run away faster than a kid who's been told he has to take ballroom dancing lessons.
Chrysler executives showing us the new Durango made a special point to reiterate that the Dodge brand is not going away, as has been rumored after the company took the Ram and Viper - the cream of the brand - out from under the Dodge umbrella. Turns out Dodge has been the brand attracting the most young people (who knew?) and has a younger average age buyer than Honda. The Dodge brand historically has also attracted buyers who aren't exactly Phi-Beta Cappa, which some companies worry about. Chrysler not so much. Dodge buyers tend to be more the working, high-school-educated, community-college-educated backbone of the work force in America. If they keep coming to Dodge, the Durango is a pretty good piece of hardware to save up for.

Roadkill pits every project car against each other

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 19:49:00 EST

The guys behind Motor Trend's monthly Roadkill series have collected nine of their favorite project cars from their videos and pitted them against each other in a battle royale to determine a winner. It's 44 minutes long, but it's completely worth the investment of time.
The cars run the gamut from a 1973 Chevrolet Ramp Truck, a 1975 AMC Pacer and a legitimately impressive 1967 Chevy Camaro, and they are pitted against each other to see which is the fastest around an autocross course. The drivers include Roadkill's two hosts and Motor Trend's Johnny Lieberman and Carlos Lago. It's reminiscent of the best episodes of Top Gear and worth a watch.
So it's the weekend - the perfect time to relax. Grab your preferred beverage, get comfortable and enjoy 44 minutes of some seriously ratty but utterly cool project cars as they are throttled within an inch of their lives (or past it). Scroll down to check out the video.

Dodge Viper to out-Hell the Hellcat with supercharged V10?

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 11:30:00 EST

The Viper wouldn't be the Viper if it wasn't the most powerful model under the Chrysler umbrella. But with the arrival of the Hellcat engine in the Dodge Charger and Challenger, the Viper has fallen behind in the bragging rights department: where the new supercharged V8 produces 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated V10 offers "only" 640 hp and 600 lb-ft - gargantuan output figures by almost any other standard, but crucially behind on the SRT power scale. Conner Avenue is going to have to do something about that.
Although the Hellcat's engine reportedly won't fit under the Viper's hood, SRT is now rumored to have another trick up its sleeve: supercharge the existing V10. According to the Pentastar performance enthusiasts at allpar.com, Chrysler has already taken delivery of the first such prototype engines so that it can begin the process of fitting it into an upgraded Viper.
The spooled ten-pot is tipped to produce around 800 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. More than that and the Viper's drivetrain, chassis and bodywork would have to be substantially reworked. Though beefier transmissions are available, fitting them would reportedly set off a domino-game of changes required to handle the added torque. Which may be something Chrysler would be prepared to do for the next-generation model, but in the meantime, 800 hp could prove enough to put the Viper back atop the Mopar performance ladder where it belongs, and give it an edge against the new Corvette Z06 to rekindle sales.
