1984 Dodge Ram 1500 Custom 100
Up for bid is a regular cab 1984 Dodge D100 (not 1500) 1/2-Ton Short Bed Pickup Truck equipped from the factory with the indestructable 225 cubic inch slant six engine and Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission air-conditioning power steering power brakes and sliding rear window. From top to bottom this Ram is a solid body and frame 99% rust free survivor from its original factory paint and drive train down to its dog dish/poverty hubcaps and the original owners manual in the glove box. Even the exhaust system which is in very good condition appears to be the factory (all welded) system. The 5-digit odometer is currently at 56111 but it is not known if it is the actual mileage or not since I am not the original owner. The only non-factory alterations made include an upgrade from the original "lean burn" ignition module on the air cleaner housing to a more reliable and conventional fender-mounted ECU electronic ignition system the installation of a dash-mounted aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette Stereo plus door speakers and the replacement of the factory red carpet with black vinyl flooring.This truck starts runs drives and stops very well with no smoke leaks rattles squeaks or other noises and is a real pleasure to drive. The only driveability issue is a very slight shake at 50-55 mph which is believed to be caused by an out-of-balance tire which I will have checked this week.Due to age and normal wear and tear the following new parts have recently been installed to bolster the safety reliability and driving comfort of this truck: P235/75R/15 Tires (Bridgestone Dueler A/T)Tinted Windshield (with new rubber gasket) Motor MountsCarburetor (with new air and fuel filters)Alternator (with new belt)StarterIgnition Wires & Spark PlugsRadiatorA/C Compressor (with new belt) A/C Filter/Drier A/C High Pressure Refrigerant Hose Windshield Wiper ButtonsHeadlight Dimmer SwitchOil Pressure SwitchBlack Vinyl FlooringDoor Window SealsDriver Door Window CrankBrake Pedal PadThe only interior issues are the gear selector red indicator and the ashtray are missing and the driver's seat cushion upholstery is torn hence the aftermarket seat cover.Overall the exterior of the truck is in amazing condition considering its age of 31 years. Please look at the photos of the following described paint blemishes and body issues: The original paint has thinned primarily on the hood and roof resulting in areas of primer beginning to show thru the paint. Also there are areas on the lower half of each door and the passenger rear quarter where there is peeling from a previous spot repaint job. There are 2 minor dents on the hood and one on the tailgate. There is also a small dent in the grille surround and part of the driver turn signal lens is broken off. The only rust worthy of note is on the driver's door as a result of the driver resting his arm on the edge of the window over the years and wearing the paint off. With the proper care and maintenance which it deserves this truck should provide many more miles of enjoyable driving and is being sold "as is - where is" with no warranty expressed or implied. The winning bidder is responsible for pick up and delivery. Please ask any and all questions prior to placing your bid. Thanks and Good Luck.I reserve the right to end the auction at any time as truck is for sale locally.
