Does anyone have any info on true spirit trucks? What was included in the package? I'm looking at a 76 360/2barrel tre spirt. Does anyone make true spirit decals? Thanks

My understanding is - they were basically a regional striping package that could be added on to any engine combination. No quantities where tracked. I have someone working on the stripes but it is not looking good cost wise - not enough demand to justify start up costs.

Get your facts straight before posting. Tuff wheel was not standard equipment. 4x4 True Spirits were made. Fleetside True Spirits were also made. Here is a pic of a un-restored 4x4 True Spirit.

yeah, i'm gonna have to agree.
one there are NO prodcution numbers for dodge trucks as of this time.

quad headlamps were 79-80 only NOT 76
Black interior was NOT standard. black was NOT avail with all colors.
What are western wheels?
15x7's were not an option in 76

the colors posted, most were not avail in 76 or 77
the CNA designation for stripe code would be INCORRECT. the Cxx codes were front axles

stripe codes were in Mxx codes and paint procedures were in Pxx codes.

noT everything is incorrect.
just that we know of some that exist, like 76440, he has a 77 sweptline, and it has parchment interior.

just like the musclecar era. never say never w/Ma.

EDIT: sorry, meant to say "not" not "no"

that was the book that Skip Gibbs made. he has a lot of information, but not all info. Like Galen, he is human, and can make mistakes, and will more than likely fess up to them, when the guru probably wouldn't....
