    1953 Dodge 'coupe' truck project

    Greetings, is that the original motor? (is it a KEW) because none of the ones I have have an external bypass in the cooling system. According to the workshop manual 6 cylinder automatic Chrysler Royals had a 3.54 diff so the earlier Plymouth/ Dodge / Desoto sedans may have too (the manuals had 4.1 and 3.9 in the Royals). Cheers

    3 Fargos And A Dodge...

    Good looking fleet, I believe in Australia all Pilothouse trucks got the corner windows (except the deluxe which is a different shape back of cab).
