Originally an NC DOT truck. The only original 1981 parts are the cab, rear doors, frame, hood, one fender, and lower control arms

A 1993 Ram D150 bought at a used car lot provided 95% of the parts

Entire drivetrain

Dash, instrument cluster, and A/C

Entire electrical system

Entire fuel system


The parts truck had 107,000 miles when it donated its life to this truck. The odometer (original to the parts truck) now shows 215,000 miles. I did not rebuild the engine but it doesn’t leak or use excessive oil. Magnum engines live a very long life because they have fuel injection and roller camshaft.

Restoration finished 2006

Professionally appraised at $46,500 in 2007 (BEFORE the sunroof, stereo, and custom instrument cluster was added)

Featured in Custom Classic Trucks magazine Nov. 2006 (article still on motortrend.com)

Entered in several car shows - took first place at Chryslers at Carlisle

Been on Hot Rod Power Tour twice

Daily driven in NC from 2005 to 2020

Hauled a 1969 Charger on a 2000 lb trailer (6000 lbs total) with no issues
