He won't reply to my messages or emails
I may have asked him so many questions & such that he didn't want to lie so much & get caught
The letter code in the VIN question ended our conversation as it seems That or the request for the codes from the data plate that he said was present

I've run into a guy who claims his truck is one of less than 100 77 D150 Custom with a 440




Since there is no possible way to prove this, he could say whatever.

I have one 2wd shortbed, two 2wd Longbeds and 5 clubcabs in registry.
4wd's? Have 15 shortbeds.




No way to assess that, no numbers for 77, but the car guru says 121 for 76 model, and 74 units for 78... soon who knows...sure there is something somewhere...but it has not surfaced yet.

Sam I would have to agree with you
I figured the car guru didn't put forth much effort in the truck department & let the numbers slide in the dumpster

I find it funny when these guys claim these numbers & actually no one knows

The guy I'd been talking with displayed every view & what I did see was the wrong angle & length on a in cab filler neck

131" wb Conv cab = Reg Cab with 8' bed
165" wb Crew cab = the farmers son I know is probably right

I know I've seen a bunch of tow,tug,dump,roll,sweeper & host of other commercial style trucks with an in cab & that is a given by it being available in the parts books up into the 80's

Dealer installed only or truck body vendor it seems possibly factory through the dealer commercial Truck department

Bob...
I still have to differ there, seen plenty of ssb 77 and a few 78 trucks with an in cab tank that was auxiliary.
Just to blow your mind a little, and I will have to look up the code, but there is a code that is for a special tank configuration in cab only, not in frame, and was on 76 and 77 d100 trucks.. have a 76 like this in my yard...

78 small block PW. There wasn't a switch or a decal
on the dash for one obvious reason.

About 8 people in the entire world care if a 70s Dodge truck gas tank came factory or not. All 8 found this thread.

I've got a '77 W200 Crew. It has the in-cab tank and NO external tank. It came this way from the factory. Frame tank required different cross-members, so if the truck came with one, I would see signs of the original cross-members being removed, frame re-riveted, etc. Bottom line, this truck left the factory with an in-cab tank and no other tanks...
