1985 Dodge Other Pickups

1985 Dodge Ram W350 Crew Cab with drivetrain out of a 1992 Dodge Ram W250 Cummins 1st gen donor. Very clean truck, was originally owned by the Air Force inVirginia with minimal rust. It is a project that needs finishing. Currently runs and yard drives. The paint is decent driver quality. Overall a very solid truck that would make a great daily driver when finished.
If you're viewing this listing, you likely know how hard these are getting to find in this condition. 1985 was the last year for the Crew Cab in this body style. Truck is a factory one ton, four wheel drive. It has the original Dana 60 front and rear axles with 4.10 gear ratio. The inetercooled Cummins engine, a518 automatic transmission and NP205 transfer case are out of a good running and driving 1992 W250 donor truck. The only real rust on the truck is the bed floor, must have had water sitting in it for a while (see photos).
What needs to be finished:Rear driveshaft lengthened (Currently installed and functional for yard driving)Front driveshaft rebuilt and lengthenedFuel tank mounting (diesel tank with sending unit are installed but needs tank straps)Complete interior (I do not have interior to include in the sale)Some wiring under the dash (truck starts and drives, but the lights and gauges need a few more connections, mostly grounds)VIN tag swap (currently has the dash cover out of the diesel donor, need to swap the vin tag with the correct 1985 tag, I have the complete dash cover with tag intact)Windshield installed (after vin tag swap)Missing shift lever and linkage for the transfer case (needs sourced and installed)Shift linkage needs adjustment, but does currently go into reverse, neutral and drive.Likely other odds and ends not listed.
The truck is located in Pleasant Prairie, WI. Bidders are welcome to set an appointment for viewing in person. Feel free to call or text my cell with questions or to schedule a showing, 630.545.5020. Clean and clear Illinois tile in hand.
