My new project

Hi !! Here a few pics of my new project. Second heavy truck I bought.

First my 1980 Pete. Was too nice to alter so I sold it.

At last,being a "mopurist" I found a cool 1972 Dodge L1000 on ebay that I bought lately as a project.

These were all diesel. This one has a cummins 250 with a 10 speed. It s quite rough specially compared to the 1980 Pete 352 I bought last year but I'm a Dodge maniac. So to me it was mandatory. They are also quite rare so eye catcher too.

Yea the pete was cool looking. My dad drove a few of them, lots of room in them. THe dodge is diffrent. you dont see alot of them restored or running around anymore. Looks like a few feet of frame rail would be needed to really get a decent ride out of it or to add a flat bed to it

Update

Since I created my profile on here lots of things has changed or I should say been added.I now have 3 Dodge L1000. are very rough to bad and latest is mint mint mint. Here are a few video link.

This one is a nice running and driveable truck I found in a forum. Truck was in Red Lion,PA

This other one is a donnor for my daycab,which I wanted to swap cab on the lil jackrabbit. But I'l have to rethink all of this as the green truck needs minor repair to pass DOT and will be upgraded to single axle air ride and unimount Alcoa wheels.
