1978 Dodge Other Pickups

I'm a collector who got a little carried away last fall on a buying binge and bought too many cars for my storage space. One of them was this cool survivor truck that was acquired from a Dodge truck collector.
A few of the photos on this listing are from last summer when the previous owner had the truck for sale. All of the rest were taken by me today (1/18/2017).
This is a basic all-American truck that could be an everyday driver/work truck or a cool weekender to take to Home Depot... and it certainly won't look out of place at your local Cars & Coffee. The photos tell the story.
The basics:
318 V8 that runs great, starts immediately, idles smoothly3-speed on the tree... column mounted shifterall original paint (getting thin in places but has a nice patina). The top of the cab is painted blackall original interior (except for a newer in dash am/fm stereo)clear glass all around and both windows crank up and down as they shouldsliding rear windowvery clean 8-foot bed with properly working tail gate (bed is excellent as the original owner had a cap on the truck)very little rust... a few pin holes starting at the top edge of the bed, very small spot on lower right side fenderOversized side mirrorsWood side bed railsFront fog lampsGood chromeClear Virginia title
Recent maintenance in the past 2,000 miles:all new emergency brake and brake cablessynthetic oil changenew U-jointsnew heater corenew clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing (flywheel turned)New tires (15 inch wheels/tires)rebuilt carburetor

Also included:The original Dodge build sheetoriginal owners manual and some service recordsbench seat covercolor matched touch-up painta box of extra parts
All in all, it's an honest truck with many more years of work life ahead. Located in Earlysville, Va. near the Charlottesville Va. airport. Personal inspections welcomed with an appointment. Questions? Send me an email and I will respond quickly. Happy to assist your shipper.
