Truck Car for sale in rumson, New Jersey 07760
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
THIS IS A REMARKABLE RESTORATION (No credit to me).
I bought this truck November 2017. I haven’t had the time to enjoy it.
owner bought it in 2003. FRAME OFF RESTORATION was done in 2005 using 1979
factory red color. Repainted again in 2014. A NEW GM ZZ383 CRATE ENGINE was
installed along with a JASPER REMANUFACTURED TH350 TRANSMISSION. Restored truck
has about 3,000 miles on it.
During restoration, new; doors, fenders, inner fenders and hood were installed instead of working out all the minor dents. All other parts were stripped down, primed, cut in and painted. The frame, axles, fuel tanks, and engine bay components were also stripped and painted. Also installed were new factory looking wheels and trim rings, new chrome trim, new grille and emblems, seat upholstery and new dash pad and OEM gauge cluster. The engine has aluminum pulleys, edelbrock intake, edelbrock carb, MSD HEI distributor and electric fans.
2017 a new radiator was installed along with front and rear 3:73 pinion gears,
front and rear differential bearing kits, high stall torque converter, front
drive shaft slip yoke, new seals for the transfer case, rebuilt/adjust transfer
case assembly. THE COST OF THAT WORK ALONE WAS $4,000.
There is also a new classic looking but modern stereo and speakers yet to be installed but is included with the truck. The truck has always been garaged. The underside of the truck is as clean as the top.
TRUCK IS A HEAD TURNER. I GET STOPPED AND ASKED ABOUT IT EVERY TIME I DRIVE.
PEOPLE MARVEL AT IT. RUMBLES like a muscle car.
I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT HAS BEEN SPENT GETTING THIS TRUCK TO IT’S CURRENT CONDITION. But it’s time for someone with more time than me to enjoy it.
