About “Pace Truck”

My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)

About “Ugly Dog”

I bought this truck in August of 06 from a local farmer with the last name of Dodge. His father had bought it off the showroom floor back in '71 brand new and it was in his family ever since. he was selling it because he had just got a brand new Dodge truck. I purchased it from him for $600. it has all of the original trim minus one piece that is missing from the pasenger side front fender well, it has the original 318 V8 and 3 speed + Granny manual transmission. I also have all 4 original wheels and hub covers. I will post some new pics soon. **UPDATE** Through study and decoding of my VIN on the truck, I found out that the motor that is in it now (318) is not the original :(. The Original motor was the 226 V6, So my hopes of keeping it all original have gone down the tubes :P. But I plan on putting a new 318 in it in the next few weeks :D. I will post more pics as soon as I get back from my deployment in Iraq, so keep an eye out.
