About

Truck is for sale

this is my second truck after my 1984 dodge's 318 took a crap on me.I bought this 1985 dodge for 1500 dollars with money i worked for full time all summer.The 1985 dodge has a very powerfull 318 backed by a np435 four speedwith granny 1st,np208 t-case,the heavy dana 60 rear,dana 44 front with cad.this truck runs very good.Smoking the tires is effortless with this engine.the truck is pretty much stock except for the addition of lt285/75r16 tires added by the previous owner.The truck has been a pretty decent truck since i bought it about 3 months ago.it has had its problems though.I have had to put the rear driveshaft on properly,i had to put a new wiper motor on it,had to recently put a new clutch in it(thanks to a 16 year olds heavy right foot),and now i do not have four wheel drive because of that stupid cad system.I have also painted this truck with semigloss black paint out of a spray can.i have also since added a aluminum diamond plate toolbox,new seat and carpet,a decent stereo,some new old 360 valve covers,and a new air cleaner.the valve covers came off a 360 that i bought for the 84 dodge.Well now on to my plans for this truck.Right now it is winter,so i am just going to drive this truck the way it is for now.Then next spring,i am going to redo the whole truck front to back.I am using the frame and cab off of my 1984(which i still have and it is still complete)which are in better shape then the present cab and frame.I am going to have the frame sandblasted and painted with a strong epoxy black paint job.i am then going to repair and paint the cab while its off of the frame.Then it will be put back together with all new poly body bushings,brakelines,calipers,pads,rotors,the 1984 dodge front axle(to eliminate the cad system),new motor mounts,fenders,doors,a rust free bed i found in ohio(gasp),the dana 60 rear out of the 1985 dodge,either the 318 out of the present 85 or the 360 which i bought for the 84,along with the 4 speedout of the 85,and the 208 out of the 84(again no vacuum hoses for the cad)This will be about it for this coming summer,because by this time,i will be back in school and out of my summer job.then afteri get it mechanically new,i will be adding several modifications to it.I will be lifting it about 11 inches with an 8 inch skyjacker spring lift,along with a 3 inchbody (which will be added when the 84 cab is done).my plans for tires and wheels are the new 40/16/16 super swamper ltb's tires on either 16 inch ae 589's or summit racing series 50/51 wheels,which are a 5 spoke star type wheel.by that time,i will also probably be building the 360 stroked into a 408(unless i can find a decent rebuildable big block).I also plan on taking many classic mopar styling cues in which i will not explain till i get them done and incorporate them into my truck.
