My father has got to let a yardful of toys and projects go. These were all hauled in from Fed Gov auctions over the last 1.5 years. Had plans to fix and sell, mix and match a project truck to keep, but must just let it go for various reasons:
Several parts trucks:
2 late 80's half ton trucks, one short bed, one long - both straight and need an engine.
3 M880's (all are 1976 models - low miles). All are red and are complete. Served time as forestry trucks. Not rotted out.
One late 80's 4x4 1 ton dually cab & chassis. Has a utility body to go with it. All 6 tires are very good. 4 spd manual. Ex military. needs an engine.
2 89's. 4x4, throttle body 360, 4spd manual. Under 80k miles. Ex county maintenance trucks from NJ (read: body rot!) - but the cabs look good. drivetrain is complete on both.
1 mid 80's. 360. runs vg. no title, bought at auction from a tow company. bill of sale only.
IF i had time and a garage, I would build a nice offroad truck with one of the NJ trucks and the short wheelbase truck. That would be an awesome trail rig. 360 fuel injected, solid front axle, 4spd man, short wheelbase, no rust, low gears... what else could you want?
Also considered buying a RamCharger or TrailDuster and putting the entire drivetrain from one of the 3/4 NJ trucks in it. That'd be a great family trail rig.
the train of thought for the 1 ton dually would be take the engine out of one of the NJ trucks (again, 360 fuel injected via throttle body). Mount the utility bed or put a flat bed on it and work it!!
Too many projects, not enough time. Wont be for awhile now either. gotta let them all go for now.
There's also another 1990 model 250 with accident damage, frame damage, but approx 70k on the 360.
there's other dodge stuff too (2 cargo vans, one passengr van, a 96 minivan, 2 K cars). Wish I had the time and money. I'd love to make a package deal as well. My loss, your gain. C'mon and get your HD Dana axles, 4spd manuals, M880's, 1 ton drivetrain etc.
We are about 20 minutes south of Atlanta.
