    I know my good friend where I work for his. I saw those dodge d500 it look best shape than my 79 f150. He want $700 from me but for anyone he want $1,000.

    It have 318 with 2 barrel carb plus transmission is 4 speed manual. I look at frame it look really really very stout than I have see before.

    Most is hood in bad shape but cab and frame no rust. Stake is nearby 12 foot but look strong not weak I am sure it can haul 20,000 pound or more with no problem.


    Would 10 foot plow great for this? I know it not 4wd but have dually. I thought put heavy thing on stake would help traction to push heavy snow.

    It worth to get it? This truck was military now it just sit in junkyard but all parts still there because no one want that because rare. Miles on that is 016,000 miles but no leak. Yes it really 016,000 I see with my eye. Sound it will last until 500,000 miles.

    Lucky it not need commercial license because it under 9,000 gvws if it was 10,000 gvws then I won't buy this.

    I think in July I will buy this truck for sure if you say it worth it. I know seat is bad because dry plus sun make seat's cover more brittle so it already broke.

    You don't have near enough power in that 318 to push around a truck of that size plus a 10' plow.

    Post some pics...

    I can get pic tomorrow if he go junkyard because he have key to gate.

    Well that true but would 9 foot plow enough for this because rear tires which is dually.

    it is green but I notice that paint is actual thinner skin because you touch it peel easy. DO Dodge use cheap paint in 60's?
