1984 Dodge Other PickupsI have NEVER seen another truck like this one! 1984 Dodge D350 Crew Cab, ong bed 2WD, ith single rear wheels and the Prospector trim! Body, nterior and seats are not perfect, ut are in great shape for being 32 years old!
I have paperwork for the truck beginning with the day it was sold new in Detroit on June 11, 984. The original owners moved to Tennessee the following year, hich explains why the truck is so solid.
The 727 transmission is good, he rearend is quiet, he brake shoes, ads, otors, rums, heel cylinders, alipers, heel bearings and seals, xle bearings and seals, uel pump and carburetor were all replaced when I bought the truck in 2014. The engine runs rough, ut plenty well enough to make it home to your shop for the inevitable Cummins swap. I'm the second owner, nd I've owned it for nearly two years. The rear spring shackle hangers were modified and moved up two inches to lower the rear, asily reversed to bring the truck back to stock height. The front coils were cut to lower the front, gain, asily reversed by simply installing stock coils. The 16" wheels are from a 2000 Ram, nd I think they fit the look of the truck perfectly. The new front bumper is a 1986-89 style, sing 1986 brackets. The tube grille was on it when I bought it.
There is rust (see pictures) at the front of the bed, n both sides of the interior along the bottom of the panel separating the front and rear doors, n the interior of the roof above the panel between the passenger side doors, nd a small spot on the passenger fender. The tailgate has rust, o a very straight, olid replacement comes with the truck. I questioned the original owner about the weird rust on the bed, ince the rest of the bed appears to be solid. She said they used it mainly to pull a 24 foot camper and always had a cap on the truck. The only thing we could think of is that the water ran down the cap and into two holes in the front wall of the bed, here it rusted that panel. I would simply weld a new one in as the rest of the bed seems very solid. The passenger rocker panel has some dings in it, ut both rockers, ab floor, ottoms of all four doors all are very, ery clean!
The gauges work fine most of the time, ut probably need the connections cleaned. Aftermarket A/C was installed by the dealer but it was a crappy system. Heater blower switch is bad, ossibly due to modifications made to the heater control for the add-on A/C? I would recommend transplanting a factory heat - A/C setup. It needs window and door seals. I have a spare one-piece OEM back window glass I was going to use to replace the slider, f the buyer wants it.
Overall this is a nice, olid, ERY RARE truck that deserves an owner who will appreciate the fact that he or she is driving something you just don't see every day! GREAT candidate for a Cummins swap!
Note: the pic in front of the city of Nashville shows the truck in 2015 at stock height with 245/75/16 tires all around. All other pics show it as it is NOW, owered slightly front and rear with 265/75/16 tires on the rear.
