This auction is for a 1934 Dodge KC factory suicide door truck. This was a 100% original and rust free southern truck when it got a paint job about 4 years ago. The paint is a single stage and has a great shine to it. There are a few chips and scratches in it now but nothing major. All the metal is very straight, no dents. There has never been any rust through on this truck, it is super solid. I cannot find any evidence of rust repair on the truck. Everything fits and closes like it should. The drivetrain is the original flathead inline 6 cylinder mated to a 3 speed manual transmission and it runs very good. Compression is good on all cylinders. It has good oil pressure, does not smoke and never overheats. It has the tilt out slide lock windshield. The dodge now has fiberglass front and rear fenders because the guy who owned it before me did not want to straighten the banged up metal ones before he painted it. They are very thick high quality fenders. The side mount spare tire has an original J.C. Penny tire on it. There are two things on the truck that do not work. The first is the cowl vent. It seems to have sheared the hinge pins that keep it on track so it will not stay open. The second is all the gauges work except for the fuel gauge. When I had the gas tank professionally restored I could not find the correct sender and just put the old one that didn't work back in. I just fill it up before I go out for the day, never had a problem running out of gas. I drive this truck all the time and never have any issues. The odometer says 15136 miles which I was told by the previous owner it is correct, and from the condition of parts on the truck like the instrument cluster I would not doubt it. I have a clear title in my name. Call Jim at 815-252-7247. This truck is located in Peru, IL. Here is your chance to own one of these factory suicide door trucks that rarely come up for auction in complete original condition. These trucks are getting close to $50K in the big auctions for a fully restored example.
Here is a list of what I have done to it:

Dodge is only building 500 examples of the black-and-blue Mopar '13 Dart, but the majority of them are now being recalled. Part of the Mopar upgrade included replacing the stock seat skins in the Dart with black and blue Katzkin leather, but the seat-mounted side airbags were reinstalled improperly during the upfitting process, which could affect the performance of the front seat side airbags.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin, a total of 374 Mopar '13 cars are being recalled due to side airbags that might not deploy in a side-impact collision. There have been no reports of the airbags not going off, but Chrysler will still need to reinstall the bags to ensure proper deployment. The recall notice is posted below, which gives information for Mopar '13 owners to contact Chrysler and NHTSA.
The guys behind Motor Trend's monthly Roadkill series have collected nine of their favorite project cars from their videos and pitted them against each other in a battle royale to determine a winner. It's 44 minutes long, but it's completely worth the investment of time.
The cars run the gamut from a 1973 Chevrolet Ramp Truck, a 1975 AMC Pacer and a legitimately impressive 1967 Chevy Camaro, and they are pitted against each other to see which is the fastest around an autocross course. The drivers include Roadkill's two hosts and Motor Trend's Johnny Lieberman and Carlos Lago. It's reminiscent of the best episodes of Top Gear and worth a watch.
So it's the weekend - the perfect time to relax. Grab your preferred beverage, get comfortable and enjoy 44 minutes of some seriously ratty but utterly cool project cars as they are throttled within an inch of their lives (or past it). Scroll down to check out the video.
My younger brother bought a Dodge Dart earlier this summer. It's a basic SXT, in Maximum Steel Metallic, with the 2.0-liter engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and not a whole lot else. Unfortunately, at the time, the Dart was one of the few cars in the compact class I'd never driven. I didn't know a lot about it, and therefore, didn't have a lot to say when he bought it. I think the words "based on an Alfa," popped out when I first saw it.
As it turns out, he's grown quite fond of the dark gray sedan, so it was with some degree of enthusiasm that I paid him a visit in this bright-orange Dart GT. I was excited to see what it was about the Dart that he enjoyed so much, despite my tester featuring a different engine, transmission and a lot more tech. After a week with the car, though, I must say: I don't quite see what all the fuss is about.
