Here's a couple of 900 Dodge's I saw in Troutman, N.C. a few years ago. They were out of Georgia and 2 of the best looking trucks there.

I always liked the looks of the Bighorns. They were ahead of their time in looks, like a Diamond T, and were a better looking truck than most of the trucks on the road today.

Ah-hah! The things you can learn here! That reminded me of this article i'd read about the first Bighorn. I'd never put 2 and 2 together before, but it was indeed written by Tony Youngblood.

This blue Bighorn was at Troutman too but either the year before or after the 2 900 models were.

the 900s look just like the one that my great uncle had. (except not that nice) and his was a coal truck with a 20 foot dump bed. the last tine i saw his truck after he sold it it was a log truck and that was about 15 years ago and havent seen it sence.

These were built by Dodge with FWD noses for a new car hauler. They did this so the engine was accessable with the tractor mounted car rack.

That may have been the case with the upper picture, I have seen that one before and I think it was shop built by an auto transporter. The standard C model was also used for auto carriers. The supports were placed so the fenders would swing.

The lower photo was originally one of the Clark Transport Trucks. They wanted the conventionals so the upper rack would be lower.
