My doctor gave me this!
Its a 1958 W500 Dodge Army Fire Truck with a HOWE bed and a rare Power Giant cab. Plans are to resto him to good usable parade condition.
We want to some super single military tires on it like the newer military trucks are using and lose the 20 inch split rim widow makers. It has a 318 polyblock that need some loving right how. A rocker arm is eaten on the bottom the shape of the top of the valve, and is dangerously close to the keeper. This would be a great learning project for someone who want to learn engines. I will be throwing a rebuild kit in the engine, redoing the heads, and upgrading to an electronic ignition.
This is Old Blue, a 1964 D500 Dodge truck Hopefully it will yield up the used parts needed for that repair. Old Blue really should be turned into a 2 ton rat rod, which would be a fun project, but that’s a whole other page.
