    Ok Folks finished up the master cylinder rebuild...Not much happening the rest of the summer, waiting for the engine blueprinting, vulcanized rubber, emblem rebuilds and of course the bed and cab...as soon as items come back, I will photo journal it. Still need to purchase running boards and a tailgate. Big thanks out to Mark Wyman at Marksfinds4lessvintagecarpartsandmore.com by far the largest NOS catalog I could find... Until then, enjoy the photos...

    Here you go, I’ve even included the side splash guards that go vertical along the inside fender, notice the passenger side is riveted and the driver side was bolted....

    Hi John, I do have a complete set, taken from a Donor truck here in Norco, CA. I remember one of the panels had been bent but was still useable. I have not begun the refurbishment on them yet. I will pull them out this weekend and take some pictures. Vic Panza has a '37 at 99% complete in the refurbishment, also reach out to him. PM me if you need his contact info.

    Is a Dodge Slant 6 possible in a 38 Dodge rc truck?

    These folks can probably answer all your questions...http://www.slantsix.org/

    Is a Dodge Slant 6 possible in a 38 Dodge rc truck?

    I'd imagine you can fit anything in the engine bay, as long as you fabricate the mounts....But I suspect a slant will be tough, '38 was the first year for "floating" power....the front motor mount sits on two supports that are welded to the inside frame and the rear mounts are bolted to the two dog ears on the flywheel cover to the inside of the frame....all mounts are on vulcanized rubber, producing the "float"....advertising claimed it was an "economizer" feature. I am not so sure it would cheaper to teach the wife how to drive what it came with....GLWT

    vin # for dodge pickup

    Based on Eric Bannerman's book Dodge Truck Serial Numbers 1917-1980, you have a 1919 Dodge 4, 1/2 ton, with 114" wheelbase and a 212.3 CI engine. That year the number range was 303107 through 424145, So I'd say this one is a late model 1919.

    Interesting Truck division placed them on the driver's side, set back above the front shackle of the front axle.
