yeah, you heard me, Fargo. A Canadian Dodge truck sold by Plymouth dealers.
well here it is...
it has a suspension and wiring from a 79 d150 and a 383 big block from a 64 police interceptor car, backed by a 727 torquflite pushbutton. I'll keep you posted on it.

Very strange front end never seen anything like it before. Should be a real head turner. Very nice work.

Cool old Fargo. What year did they quit making Fargos and switch to the Dodge name in Canada?

we had dodge since day one, we just had twice as many truck dealers, the dodge/desoto dealers, and the Chrysler/ Plymouth dealers. for a while, we even had plymouth trucks, and mexico had desoto trucks. Fargo trucks were phased out in the late 70's, so you could probably have a fargo trailduster out there somewhere...

okay, here's an update. the wiring is being updated and more parts being grafted in to the wiring system. I'm still looking for a pair of doors for the truck, if someone can give me some help with that I'd appreciate it, although, I may just rush the doors on to the truck and weld the bottom of the drivers door closed. I've discovered that I can't go any farther at this point on the suspension, and I figure it's now simpler to just find an entire frame and re mount the body on the new frame, but even with a short box ram reg cab frame I could still get a long box bed on with no problem. and I'd really like to keep the frame length I have. the problem with the front end right now is that when I grafted it on, I made the caster alighment way too much, and so the truck will steer like mad if it hits a bump in the road. I'm glad I found that now, and not when I'm driving it.
