I have a really weathered, complete dodge tow truck that has served as a mascot for our 1967-1973 Mercury Cougar Wrecking Yard for years. If you watch GEARZ they showed a glimpse of it recently when they featured us on their show (they are currently building a 1967 Cougar). Anyway, I have a real itch to drive this to local shows and yes, even tow around a antique or classic wreck behind it! I do not want to disturb the patina as it is 100% legit and complete right down to the old hand lettering on the doors. I am looking for a package deal where someone has gutted a running driving original to make a street rod. Maybe an abandoned project where most of the mechanical work was completed? I do not need a field fresh rig as that is what I currently have. Here are a couple of pictures. Let me know what you have! Don Rush 503-463-1130
I'm new to the forum and am not sure if I'm posting in the correct section but I need some help. I recently purchased a heavily rusted 1928 Dodge Brothers dump truck for a yard art project. My truck has dual rear wheels on what appear to be early Budd style hubs. My wheels are so badly rusted that they cannot be used. I need to find some replacement wheels or will have to make my own. This truck will never again be on a highway and a couple of pounds of air are all that's required to hold the tires into shape . The truck will be on stands but will appear to be on the ground when finsihed. Can anyone give me some advice or suggestions for tire and wheel options? I would prefer to stay with very used tires and wheels to keep the look correct. Thanks in advance!
