1974 Dodge Other Pickups D200VERY RARE 1974 Crew Cab, with Long Bed and the 440 V-8. This was the 1st year the 440 was offered, & I was told this was #4 of only 26 of these made. It is in great condition, but does have some spots where there's a little body rust coming thru from the backside. Everywhere else is great. Structurally it's solid & the drive-train is all in excellent condition (see below).

I bought this about 27 years ago & have loved it all these years. Sadly, I got a bigger boat to tow & really needed a diesel & 4WD, so I think it's time for this guy to retire. It's a solid truck in good condition, that just needs a little TLC to be top notch. There is NO structural rust & the paint is beautiful. Unfortunately, there are a few pesky spots that have collected water & rusted out from the back side (see the pics). The AC works, but slowly leaks refrigerant so I would usually charge it up around July & it would get me thru the summer. Heater works & I just changed the water valve, but the push/pull wire broke (from the stress of the prev. bad valve). Muffler has hole from backfire (after changing carb...), but it sounds so good I never fixed it. I'd love to see someone cherry out this unique truck into a show truck or...? It's an awesome ride, really smooth, (not an old rattle box) & is just a pleasure to drive!
