  1. If he buys the property I would assume he will be making it accessible so he can get to it. A person buying the trucks shouldn't have to do it.
  2. What makes it unusual with the small radiator is the L cab. I don't recall ever seeing that.
  3. I think Rob would switch the positions...
  4. Detroit powered Dodge truck pull.
  5. It looks a lot like this prototype from 1949.
  6. It looks like the toe panel is indented where the clutch pedal would be when all the way down - for the trucks that have a clutch pedal.
  7. It could be comparing it to its predecessor - the B model - which would be true.
  8. I think Daryl Gushee had a yellow one like that.
  9. The A model was built 1950-53. Do a search here for A40 and you will get a lot of posts about them. There were other A models as well that would be similar. If it is that complete, you might consider keeping it original. The sleeper cab would make it rare.
  10. It appears that it still exists. Or it is a different one, it states that there were three. https://bringatrailer.com/2017/04/19/one-of-three-aluminum-unibody-prototypes-1953-liteway-cargo-truck/
  11. A classic - including the arm out the window.
  12. Nice pictures - heavy on Dodges.
  13. True. The bottom line is too many people that want too much stuff. And regulating the population isn't going to happen. No country wants to be weak by having too few people.
  14. It is certainly correct about GM putting new ideas into production in that era - from about 1960 to 1966. All had been done before, but they were different for a major American auto manufacturer at that time. Some of the things they came out with in addition to the transaxle were the aluminum engine, the overhead cam, front wheel drive, rear engine, V6 engine, turbocharging, pancake engine.
  15. Make a copy of this thread and get it to him.
  16. The production list lists three of them built until 1990, the R686R, R688R and R690R. I don't know what the last R is for. 1990 was also the last year for the RD.
  17. If you can't buy it, build it. Get some small lights. Buy a regular bulldog and poke its eyes out. I just skimmed over this, but it seems more complicated than it has to be. https://jalopnik.com/238353/if-you-cant-buy-it-build-it-wanky-the-safety-cat
  18. Have you asked the dealer? If the guy owed them money, they probably did service work on the truck. They may have all the service records and someone there could have a good idea of what is wrong with the truck.
