Description

Lot #742 - Resto-Mod 1946 Dodge truck. Almost every aspect of this truck has been restored or upgraded with modern performance parts. Starting with a healthy 392ci HEMI V8 from a 1958 Chrysler; the engine has been bored .030" over with a shaved block and heads and has a Comp camshaft with high dome pistons. Custom dual-cone air intakes feed the Edlebrock carburetor with an electronic choke. The carburetor has been fitted with MSD electronic ignition for reliability. The builder clearly intended this truck to be driven frequently, thus he added the MSD ignition and a brand new Northern aluminum oversized radiator to keep the 392 HEMI cool. Mated with the HEMI is a TorqueFlite automatic transmission that handles the added power with ease and shifts seamlessly. To finish the performance aspects of the truck is a true-dual Thrush exhaust system exiting in a custom center housing. Dripping in beautiful Copper Mango Tango paint, this all-steel body show truck has been tastefully modified to give a very sleek custom look, paint and body are excellent and will stand out at any show or car event. The most noticeable custom cosmetic feature is that the side hood panels have been removed to display the 392 HEMI; the builders did manage to keep the original hood top that still opens in the clam-shell style. All of the exterior handles have been shaved, as well as the front and rear bumpers. To continue the sleek lines, both the headlights and taillights have been frenched into the fenders. Every reworked piece on the truck has been color matched with the body paint color. This includes the power bed cover that protects the refinished wood truck bed.
