Like the old Powerwagons . Just don't see many of them anymore . Almost bought a 77 last year , but mother nature has started doing her thing to the cab supports . Don't need another project right now .

I had a 727 in my '81 D150 Custom mated to my (custom) 318! :D My '81 Beast might not have been the grandmother to my shiny truck, but a good matriarch to the family, lol! :smileup:

Mmmm the ole 727... much better than the 904 I used. Well the three that I used. Split one down the middle, blew through the bellhousing and clutch plates on the second, and the motor went before I could destroy the third. Never could get my hands on a decent 727, and the 904 people were almost giving them away at the time. As a high school kid, had to do what was cheapest.

I have been on the hunt for an early 50's late 40's d100. For some reason really like the look of the bug eyes. Doesn't hurt they make a good looking street rod.

There are some of them ole flat fendered ones Im thinkin early 50 or so up around the mountains, I missed a deal on a 6x6 that was made for carrying loggers up in the mountains, wasnt a home made truck either it was factory ordered and was still running,coulda got that thing for 1200.00 but the wife went to sqwallin and fussin so I let it pass, now shes gone and I bet that truck is nowhere to be found now...
Ive got a 75 club cabpower wagon 3/4 ton thats one tough rascal, I ran it in a truck pull and made a full pull with 19750 pounds on the sled, went to make the second pass and the rains started and the event got called off..and this truck is pretty much stock I had groundhawg tires on it then, that and the tractor weights I mounted on the front was the only thing that wasnt stock lol
I would like to find somewhere around the same year with the 4 door cab

Don't feel bad man, lol, that 727 was the fifth tranny we put in that truck. We went through 2 standards and 2 automatics! We just couldn't kill the last one! :smiley_thumbs_up:

My old '69 Camper Special 3/4T Dodge was a nasty beast to look at but it ran great. Too bad the body rusted off the frame.
