Man this thing is awesome! The dually you see before you is very much in the “what exactly is it?” category because at first blush you’ll think that it is a cleanly restored 1979 Ford F350 dually that someone swapped a Cummins diesel into, making it a Fummins. Then you’ll notice the interior and realize that it sure looks like a 1990s Dodge steering wheel and dash, and then you’ll really get interested when you look under it and realize that this is a 1997 Dodge truck that wears the body of a 1979 Ford F350 and the whole thing is done so well it looks factory.
The engine is a 12-valve Cummins that is backed with a NV4500 stick shift trans. The motor has been woken up a little but nothing crazy has been done. We’re sure that this rig scoots down the road just fine with the work that has been done and some of the other upgrades. Good parts are used throughout the truck like a nice South Bend clutch, Curt manufacturing hitch, billet wheels, and a whole bunch more. There’s a Flowmaster exhaust on the thing so we’re guessing that it has that cool Kenworth like tone as it rumbles down the road.
The seller is asking $19,000 for this truck and we think that the price is right for the amount of work, the parts, and the finish on this thing. You can haul with this truck, show it, pull it some, and even make some drag strip hits if you want. It’ll be super unique at shows and as you can tell it really spins our crank!
