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:

You've got to hand it to Dodge for having the gumption to put the original Viper into production in the first place. It was, after all, much more of an emotional decision than a practical one, and a move which saw the first production V10 engine placed in a road car - long before the advent of the Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi R8, Porsche Carrera GT or Lexus LFA, not to mention the other Ford, BMW and Volkswagen Group models that used such engines.
It's now been 22 years since the first Viper entered production and the Viper still rolls on several generations later, but we're sad to say that courageous decision has not always been met with overwhelming sales success. In fact parent Chrysler was forced to idle the Conner Avenue plant where the Viper is made back in April due to slow sales. And while production resumed again as planned on June 23, it apparently didn't do the trick.
As a result, Chrysler corporate communications chief Shawn Morgan revealed to Autoblog that the assembly line has been shut down again for another two weeks. The line was up and running for nearly two full work weeks from June 23 until the holiday weekend that started on Thursday, July 3. But instead of coming back online today as planned, it's been idled again for the weeks of July 7 and 14. That means it will be July 21, at the earliest, before the serpentine supercars start slithering down the assembly line at Conner Avenue again. Once it does, however, production is set to resume at the same pace it was before the shutdown.
Judging by his collection of cars, blues musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd (shown above, at left, with fellow musician George Thorogood) is an enthusiast of classic Dodge muscle cars, so it's no surprise that he is an active member of Mopar-related online communities. When his 1972 Dodge Charger turned up missing from an LA-area warehouse last Wednesday, Shepherd took to the forums of Moparts.org in an attempt to get the word out in hopes of recovering his custom classic.
The Charger was stolen along with four other vehicles, and Hot Rod reports that two women have been taken into custody since - but still no word on the car. With its blacked-out appearance (including custom Foose wheels), this car is definitely hard to miss, but Shepherd also said that the car might be even more distinguishable now due to some body damage that may have occurred as it was being driven from the warehouse lot. Shepherd's website has a full gallery of images for this '72 Charger, which also has a modern 392-cubic-inch V8 under the hood and a six-speed gearbox pulled from a Viper.
If you're in the LA area and happen to see this car, Shepherd asks that you call the LAPD West Valley Division at 818-374-7611. Here's to hoping this one-of-a-kind Charger turns up unscathed.
Dodge has released several more of its Anchorman 2-themed commercials, starring Will Ferrell as inept newsreader Ron Burgundy. The four spots, one of which is a sequel to a previous commercial, follow roughly the same pattern as previous ads, with Ferrell's Burgundy misunderstanding or generally making a fool of himself. For some of the ads, though, Burgundy is selling more than just Durangos - the red-suited host of San Diego's most watched news broadcast shilling the entire Dodge lineup.
We've included all four ads down below, and you can also hope over to our original posts to see some of the older commercials. Oh, and if you're getting tired of these - we aren't, aside from the Do-dge spot - just remember that Ferrell reportedly filmed around 70 ads for Dodge.
