For sale: 1980 Dodge truck cab.
Comes with rolling chassis consisting of;
Engine, trans, frame...etc.
It has surface rust only, the engine is a slant six, 727 trans (surprisingly
Standard cab, not Club or Crew, clean enough I'm just so close to ripping it off
and swapping the one I -just- fixed for it... It's just
that nice. I'll be including the column, seat..seat belts.. I wanted the truck
for parts, turned out that I stole it for what the parts are
The cab I hunted down and had to repair I paid $650 for and this one I'd want to
say is worth $800. The paint color is Ginger
which is in perfect shape ecept for some very minor surface rust and maybe a
couple minor but very fixable dents in the roof. I
don't want to take it off the frame because even the rockers which as anyone
knows are usually rusty, well, they're CLEAN. Cab
supports are SOLID, this thing got the full rust proofing treatment. Where the
cab light wires run, the wires are still wrapped and
in excellent shape.
So, while I would be selling this for the cab and all you can get a strong
running slant 6, 727 and everything to do with the frame
for the price of the cab.
Wish I'd found this months ago..would have had my truck running and on the road
by now, dammit.. Ah well, I got the parts I
needed.. Hell, I'll even throw in the hood, just get it out of here...think I'm
asking too much? Try finding a rust free cab you don't
have to fix in New England! This was a very well taken care of farm truck that
had been sitting and rather than see it go to hell
they decided to sell it and I've thanked the former owner repeatedly already.
If nobody grabs this it will go to a bone yard where they'll sell just the cab
for what I ask.. You can come drive the dang thing on
the trailer to see how good the motor is..fires right up. I drove it home after
dumping $5 in the tank. Doesn't care if you wanna go
up hills it still pulls like a bastard, I was shocked... Never saw a 727 behind
a slant six, knew they were around but hell, far as I
know they're rare. Might even be a lockup being 79/80 truck. 3.21 gears if you
ask. No, not limited slip..else that rear would get
plucked. Frame is okay but suffered a bit from salt after the rear spring
mounts. Again, fixable if you have time, nothing to do
with suspension or it carrying weight, just the part where the bumper mounts to
is rusted through, repair with welding and you're
I didn't expect this much from a 24 year old truck. Anyone needing frame wiring,
yeah, that's good too, no splices so far as I've
No, I will not sell other than as an all in one deal..buy it, you do what you
want.. I have the title for it as well, of course. Also
found the last registration too.
Sorry for being so long but I'm just that happy to have found all my parts and
be able to turn around and sell something from this
for profit for a change.
