Took me a minute to like it but at $3k US I like it. /6, heater delete but that can be fixed.

Huh...I've never seen a Dodge version of this. Plenty of Fords, never a Dodge. Interesting.

Is the 'conversion' done in steel or fiberglass?

I see fender to firewall bracing regular trucks don't have.

How hard would it be to register stateside? work

Wow, never saw one before. I wonder what it used to have for taillights/rear doors. Van stuff? I doubt that was stock stuff.


Facts are stubborn things.

If you find a Ford one, the back door, tail light treatment is almost identical, so I'm guessing it's just a universal 'one size fits all' kinda deal.

Hmmm.....poking around on Google, came across Chevy PU's with similar tail light treatment. Wonder what the reasoning is?

The tail lights and rear panels could be due to a "domestic content" law.
There was some kind of PU/van thing on Ebay a couple years ago, similar kind of "homegrown" look to it.
Mexico & South America build a lot of cars that are quite different than ours, though some look similar.
Some of them have similar corporate styling themes, but are totally different than US models.

I must have some kind if sickness as I look at that and think of easy everyday truck since I need a truck.
Toss in the 360 roller last year they made them. With new rings/bearings/cam gaskets from Summit Racing.
New iron heads that are what 600?
Have my buddy build the trans that came on the 360 magnum.
It was all in my dad's 3/4 or 1 ton van that ran well but was high mileage and never out since new did not smoke.

No easy cool stuff is ever close

Good Gawd..

I thought the standard canopy most of these Turds have plopped on them was ugly, but this is significantly worse.

Send it back to the smelter.

The rear lower body line looks pretty crude, almost like someone did it by hand and bondo. The big slab needs some upper lines or something to break it up a bit. The Ford one looks quite a bit nicer in that aspect.
