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:

Chrysler has some good news and some bad news. First, profits were up 16 percent over the second quarter of 2012, bringing the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based manufacturer $507 million on the back of strong demand for trucks and SUVs (a recurring theme this quarter, particularly in the US). Q2 revenue was up as well, from $16.8 billion in 2012 to $18 billion in 2013. The bad news is that the Pentastar's overall earnings forecast for net income in 2013 has been trimmed from $2.2 billion to between $1.7 and $2.2 billion, according to Automotive News.
In addition to the adjusted net income forecast, Chrysler tweaked its operating profit from $3.8 billion to between $3.3 and $3.8 billion. This has gone largely unexplained by Chrysler, perhaps hoping the news of a three-percent increase in its transaction prices for Q2 will allow it to sweep this adjustment under the rug.
The star of the show for Chrysler has been its US sales, which saw a 10-percent jump, both bettering the industry average of eight percent and improving over the same stretch of 2012. As with the increase in transaction prices, Chrysler has the new Ram pickup and Jeep Grand Cherokee to thank. Perhaps most worrying from this report, though, is that every brand in the automaker's stable saw an increase in sales... except for the Chrysler brand itself.
We think this officially counts as a tradition. Every year going back to 2010, Mopar has rolled out a limited edition version of a popular product from the Chrysler Group portfolio. First it was the Mopar '10 Challenger, then the Mopar '11 Charger, then last year's Mopar '12 300, and this year it will be the Mopar '13 Dart, which will make its official world debut next week at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
Limited in number to just 500 units, the Mopar '13 Dart is no mere appearance package, though the demeanor of the Dart will be murdered out with a gloss black finish, gloss black 18-inch wheels, a set of Mopar blue stripes and a mean-looking Mopar ground effects kit. Likewise, the interior is touched up with leather seats (a blue one for the driver and black hides for the passengers), gloss black and black chrome trim, blue accent stitching, a sport pedal kit and other Mopar interior accessories.
Turning our attention back to the mechanical bits, the Mopar '13 Dart comes with the car's most powerful engine, a turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir four (shared with Fiat 500 Abarth) that's paired with a manual transmission. Those big, black wheels get wrapped in low profile 225/40R18 performance tires, and keeping everything in check is an upgraded brake kit with slotted rotors. The steering has also been calibrated for performance, the suspension lowered seven millimeters, and the exhaust tuned for better engine breathing.
Dodge has officially unveiled the most powerful vehicle to ever wear the Challenger name - the SRT Hellcat - complete with over 600 horsepower courtesy of a supercharged, 6.2-liter Hemi V8. It will be offered alongside the 485-hp Challenger SRT.
The new, force-induced V8 isn't just the most powerful ever fitted to the Challenger, it's the most powerful eight-cylinder Chrysler Group has ever built. Power figures aren't finalized, so expect to see "over 600 hp" bandied about quite a lot. That fury will be channeled through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. Yes, over 600 ponies through an eight-speed auto. So far, the only vehicle we know of that delivers more output through that many gears is the as-yet untested Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Sadly, we don't have performance metrics just yet, although if this thing can't crack four seconds to 60 miles per hour, we'll be pretty surprised.
As is the theme nowadays, the 2015 Challenger SRT features a number of driving modes, governing power output, shift speeds for the 8AT, steering effort, traction control settings and suspension settings. There are three pre-programmed options - Default, Sport and Track - and a Custom mode that allows drivers to mix and match to their heart's content.
