Sure would like to own that dually but it ain't in the budget.

Hope they don't let her go to scrap. How sad would that be?
Would be a fun run out to get her. Have truck would like to travel. 😄

There currently is a 48 on market place for $250.  Note said, “Ran when parked, flash brush  fire so parts truck”. It doesn’t look too bad. But no mas, have plenty to do.

Speaking of brush fired Dodge trucks - read an article a while back about the MASH film location in Malibu Creek State Park. Apparently the vehicles that were hauled up there for the filming were left and then later on burned in a wild fire.

I have this 63 VW, body and most of the parts to reassemble it. Bought it for $80 as a parts car for the Empi build.  I’m going to attempt to do a trade of this VW for the 48 Dodge.  People won’t likely crush the VW but might the truck. Don’t want that.

 

Question. Dual rear rims, does that mean it has a heavy duty frame and suspension?

I sure hope you get your trade made!!! I would guess duel wheels = heavier frame and springs but not for sure.

Will know more in a day or two, photos forthcoming. Tomorrow will take photos of the VW and list it in the classified. This car was garaged fOr 30 years, it is clean, rust free. The 63 is the love bug year. Should keep it, but no real interest and too old to properly build that car.

Cool picture, I remember as a kid every time we saw a semi blowing black smoke my dad would say “his injectors are not right “. Not sure if it’s right but I heard it a lot.

 Cool ! Finally able to upload a picture of my 52 ! Thanks. This beauty spent its life on the Mt. Home Idaho AFB. Has 57k original miles and runs and drives like a dream ! Lots of looks and thumbs up ! It's a boyhood dream come true. I intend to leave it in it's original "patina" ! I figure it's earned it !
