Like I need another project to spend money on but I've wanted a 70's 2wd short bed for years. Have had a few but thy were rusty, no title etc. Found this little gem locally on C/L so now I'm the proud owner. It is a 78 D100 with a 75 front clip.and clear CO title. Was originally a Colorado CDOT truck. Really solid needing only a few real small patches. Solid floors, roof, rockers etc. Has as 86 318, 727, power dics and manual steering. Got it running. Have a bunch of parts including a bed though I'd like to fine a nicer one. Have a pair of real nice Ramcharger buckets. For now I'm just fixing and replacing things to get it on the road but later on will be getting lowered 3", a/c, 8 3/4, overdrive and a 5.9 Magnum with EFI.
250.00 well spent I think.

Would like to decode this date tag. Galen's book doesn't show anything.

I didn't think GG had started selling misinformation about trucks. Somebody, maybe Detroit Muscle or Vans, just spent years compiling a truck fact book that's worth tracking down. For now, I'll just say don't think about it the way you do car fender tags and build sheets because the truck side of the house worked differently up until at least the mid 80s. Everything starts with a T.O.N. (truck order number) which is exactly like the order number on the car side except that it shows up on the fender tag. No clue what went down the assembly line with the build in progress but I've never seen a car style build sheet. The thing ya did get was a "Equipment Identification" label on the bottom side of the hood showing all the option codes installed w/ handy english translations. The T.O.N. may also appear on the door jamb sticker.

Ya the Equipment Identification is missing from this truck as the hood is off of a 75 Power Wagon. I do have it for my 73 W200. Was just curious about the date plate on the core support. I know trucks such as Machos and Warlocks had the data plates.
It's not big deal cus this truck won't be like it came from the factory when I'm done.

Look for the equipment list on the glove box lid. I think I found it there on one of my old Dodge trucks.

The "safety orange" exterior with red interior is pretty wild !
Of course, that interior could have been changed...

there is a tag under the cowl, but I have no idea what info is on it. Pretty sure you have to pull the cowl to read it.

The red interior is from a later 80's truck, Original interior probably was black.
Orange is the original color. That is the CDOT color. Then was blue and then white.
I'll be pulling the cowl plate to clean out the leaves soon.

the fender tag does show the paint code - PYxxxx.

here's what the door tags can look like. one has T.O.N., one has MDH.

Yep the same tags that have been on the 30 or so of the 72-80 trucks that I've owned over the years.
I was just curios about the date tag on the core support. Most trucks don't have that. Here is one from a 77 Macho that I built a few years ago. Guess it designates the Macho package. Special trucks like Machos, Warlock and probably Little Reds got this tag., I'm thinking maybe because it was a CDOT truck is why it has it.
1978 was a popular year. I've owned several in the past and have another 78 D200 Club Cab that is getting a Cummins 12 valve with a 518 tranny. That will be tow rig. Also have another 78 W150 that I'm parting out.

no doubt, but I'd be happy to find a rusted to death one around here. Wanting to do a '70s dash swap in mine.

Trucks have a build sheet. It is a "Warren Truck Building Order". My original Roundup pkg. truck that I bought in late '78 had 3 (duplicates) and I have a LRE that came with 2. It does seem that probably many trucks got out the door with none.
I can post one if anyone is interested.

Yes please post a pic. I've never seen one for a 72-80 truck including for the ones that my family bought new which I still have one. The more that I think about I've probably owned more like around 50 of these. Heck I have 5 right now.
I've had the Equipment Identification some under the hood and some in the glove box lid. Have also seen the option tag under the cowl plate.

I've had the Equipment Identification some under the hood and some in the glove box lid. Have also seen the option tag under the cowl plate.
They can be found in several locations: under the floor mat, under the insulation padding that is under the seat, behind the dash, and the most bazar to me has been in the transmission crossmember. One of the 2 that I have for my LRE has dealer installed undercoating on it, luckily on the backside only. up
Here's one from my '79 4x4 Roundup pkg. truck:
