Last week BangShifter Aaron Lesniewski tipped us off to the worst car in the world which is currently for sale on the internet. We basically told him that if he pulled a stunt like that again, there would be consequences. In an act of reconciliation, Aaron recently sent us the link to this amazingly clean and nice 1960 Dodge big rig that is currently for sale. The asking price is $8,000 and it is quite literally painful to look at this truck and know that we can’t buy it! The money is good, the condition looks perfect, and the whole rig is totally awesome.
The engine is a two bbl equipped 413 and the transmission is a five speed (maybe a Clark?) that is hooked to a two speed rear axle. By the looks of it, this truck was recently restored and for the asking price it sure seems like a deal, especially if you love this big old iron. No, it won’t win you any drag races but it would be beyond awesome to rumble into your weekly cruise with this truck. The 413 likely sounds hot roddy breathing through the dual exhaust, right?
Of course one of the many reasons that these particular trucks are neat centers around the “wing” front end that swings out to give access to the engine. It was a novel design and as you look at the photos below you’ll clearly be able to see how wide open the engine was for work once those sides were swung out.
This is a pretty amazing and unique truck. The only thing wrong with it is that it’ll never be in our driveway. It could be in yours though and for the right price in our eyes!
