Seems like a reasonable price IF IF IF the body is truly solid. Looks like there's been body work or bed replaced and a door maybe shruggy Definitely worth a look for someone not too far away.

Wondering; what's the difference between a "Light Duty Cycle" engine and a "Medium Duty Cycle"?

Yeah the 80's sunroof and the mixed matched bed and passenger door are holding it back for me.

Weren't sunroofs an option on '78's?

(Hmmmm.... a quick google, and............yes they did but they look different. Maybe dealer installed?)

That has an aftermarket sunroof (I used to work for a Tuff-Kote dealer) all the rage in the 80's...now they look awful and hurt the value of the vehicle.

I believe the "Medium Duty Cycle" is a 4bbl. I say that based on the 2 CA. 360 4bbl trucks I have which are "Medium Duty Cycle" and the one 318 2bbl. that is a" Light Duty Cycle"

My 360-4 does have "Medium Duty Cycle" but don't they have a "Heavy Duty Cycle" also?

Pure speculation only, but the "Heavy Duty" would have not required emissions at that time?

Just a WAG on my part, I was thinking the "Heavy Duty" would be for the 600 and up series truck? work shruggy

The light duty and medium duty cycles are referring to the engine, not the truck. Perhaps a premium engine would be considered heavy duty and these would typically be used in heavier trucks.

Don't really care how many vehicles the cab, bed, doors, fenders, frame came from - they're all the right generation and fairly close in color. Don't think I see $8k.


75 Charger SE - 440/4, cop suspension
76 Daytona - survivor
76 Daytona - tweaked
77 PW - macho clone, sno-commander, frankenram
79 RC - this was your fathers 4x4

I understand that but it makes me wonder a bit if the frame and other hidden stuff are okay.
