She's alive! I fixed all the wiring that the rats chewed up. It actually wasn't that bad. All the gauges still work and the lights and everything. Good deal

I got a new clutch kit for it and a good tranny I need to put in. Mine only has second gear. haha Here she is as is now though

I found a 76 and it's just about exactly what I'm looking for! It's even a big block. The 86 needs to go

Any takers?

I know I know! I always wanted an old Power Wagon and the first closest thing I found was a 1990 D100 318 auto. I paid $200 for it and got it running great and then traded it for a 1974 W200 Power Wagon 360 4 speed 4x4 single cab long bed. Pretty much the exact truck I wanted...the problem was it was the biggest POS ever. Most of the trucks you see in a junkyard were nicer than this one, but it ran and drove pretty damn good. So I finally sold it to buy a 77 club cab W100 318 4 speed but the deal never went through and it's gone now. So I had a 1979 Ford F250 I was tryin to trade for another PW. Some guy called me and said he had an 86 4x4 dodge 318 4 speed. I said "close enough.'

I love the 86 but it's just not quite old enough and I really wanted a long bed W200. And this ones a big block so it's a lot closer to my dream truck.

It's a 383. I wish it was a 413 or a 440. I want that long stroke for the low end torque!

I don't know TX law but do know that here in MN that if you sell more than 3 vehicles in 1 year you need to pay dealer fees and taxes. If you don't you get into big fines. Just a heads up, don't want you getting into trouble.

Thanks Chris. It's 5 here in Texas. I think I've only sold 3 in the last year. The 59 Lesabre, 67 Skylark and the 62 Catalina.

I wonder if parts cars matter. I didn't have a title for the 59 or the 67. Oh wait I also sold a 1993 Exploder 4x4.

I believe it only counts if titled. Cause the state would go by transfer of title to determine number sold.
