    Hey Dave, I don't mean to hijack Matt's thread but this is a very nice offer. I checked the 1968 Corvette National Registry, but no soap. So I shared your info over on Corvette Forum. It's very likely if this car survived, the current owner will be a member there. The car Matt listed here has already generated some positive info there.

    Greg

    WOW!! Thank you. That would be cool!! This is the guy that owned it.

  2. Matt.

    This is from a friend of mine that lives in MI and he worked at the GM Tech Center in Warren MI from the 60s to the 90s as a engineer in the Vette section. He has owned many Vettes through the years bought through the Tech center. He bought new and still owns a 62 Vette fuel, big tank and brake car. He sent me this just recently. I remember this car in 70 at a 25 cent car wash during the Detroit winter. I was washing my 65 SS convertible 409 400 4 speed car when he pulled in. His driver side door fell off. both hinges broke at the same time. I help him to put the door back in place. I was 17 at this time period. I will remove if this is not the place to post this story. Thought that you being a Corvette guy would find it interesting.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Beautiful Car!!

    I believe 39 parking lights were mounted in the headlight.  That wasn't possible with the introduction of sealed beams in 1940.  So they were placed in a small pod on top of the headlight bucket, then went to cowl lights in 41.

    My 39 woth low mount headlamps.

    A shift handle for the auto trans being located on the dash is an exclusive identifier of a 1955 Mopar (any line).   The 331 Hemi was in the '55 Chrysler and Imperial.  The 354 came out with the '56 cars.

    Thank you sir. What trans would that be?

    WTB - Citroen Deux Chevaux - friends have requested one and prefer one in USA, not wanting to import one from France to USA - absolutely NO rust.  Please private message me.  

    I just hauled this 82 from WA to LA. Guy owns 200 plus cars from the 1900s to the 80s. He rents them to the movie studios. His big customer is NCIS New Orleans.

    Nice truck.

    And they were a low number build.

    With the VIN you can do a search and it is possible to get the build card.

    The nose piece is similar to a Fargo which were the same from 39-47.

    The stainless strips on the grill bars are the same for Fargo.

    All the parts one would need for a restoration are available from any supplier of 39-47 Dodge truck parts.

    Except the hood badges and the vertical stainless strip down the center of the grill.

    In saying that I would almost bet that vertical piece is the same as a Fargo just the badge is different.

    There have been a few Plymouth trucks for sale up this way.

    Probably the rarest piece with your truck and almost impossible to find is that original tailgate.

    That was the first thing to get tossed or placed in the barn or garage that never saw daylight again. 

     

    So for that price it is fair and a good candidate for restoration.

     

    By the way track down Eric Bannerman on here.

    He can probably give you some good intel from the VIN.

    Also I highly recommend his book.

     

    Good Luck

     

    Reproduction tail gates are available. we sold about 20 of them and they are excellent.

    I believe I have one for a car.  Has a metal panel attached to the rear of the clamshell for mounting.  I can probably cut this panel out as it's not needed for a truck side mount but hate to destroy it because it is so nice and someone may need it.  Would prefer the truck specific mount for preservation sake.  Figuring out how to use the forum so not sure if you've posted a picture or not?  If can't find one for truck believe I could adapt.

    I am home now for a week. Are you still looking for a cover?
