This truck was originally purchased by the US government for military use. From there, it was loaned to the WV division of forestry, who then loaned it to the Gauley Bridge VFD which is why it now has a light bar that is included and does work. The truck has like like new 16 inch tires, and like new shocks which I put on. The mileage is unknown because the cluster was messed up when I got it, so it had to be replaced. However, I believe the mileage to be low, like it is with most of these old gov trucks.
The truck runs good, but it does smoke on start up (valve seals) and the transmission shifts good. It has the 318 with the 727 automatic transmission. It also has power steering, many of which do not. The body does have a little rust, but the cab is 95% solid, and the bed only has rust on the driver 1/4 panel that is not all the way through the bed. This would make a great work truck seeing as it has the 2500 lb payload, or a great hunting truck. The price can be lowered if you do not want the 16 inch tires. They can be replaced with some 16.5 inch rollers This truck does have extra leaf springs to make it 1 1/4 ton, instead of a 3/4 ton.

The 2014 New York Auto Show will be a big one for Dodge, as the brand has announced that refreshed versions of the 2015 Challenger and 2015 Charger will debut at the show. This is a particularly big deal for the two-door Challenger which, visually, has remained unchanged since is burst back onto the scene in 2008 and helped reignite the muscle car wars.

As a sort of hint, this announcement was accompanied by the picture you see above - the Super Bee logo in the Challenger's new instrument cluster. According to Dodge, the New York debut of a new "powertrain combination" - possibly with the high-output Hellcat V8 - will leave enthusiasts "abuzz."
As for the Charger, Dodge is promising a full redesign that should be a significant departure from the blunt, angry looks of the current model. At this point, there's no indication that the Challenger's new powertrain could be fitted to the Charger, although considering how mechanically similar these two vehicles have been, it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility.

Want to get your hands on a new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and can't wait to be the first to get one? Las Vegas will be the place to be on September 27. That's where Barrett-Jackson will auction off the very first example. And you'd better bring your checkbook, because the bidding is sure to be fierce with all the proceeds going to charity.
The supercharged Challenger with VIN 0001 has been hand-painted in Stryker Red (usually reserved for the Viper) and features special badging, documentation and accompanying memorabilia - not to mention, of course, that 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8. The car will be on display this weekend as well at Barrett-Jackson's Hot August Nights auction in Reno.
The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven't changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam.
I started thinking about the "Gas Guzzler Tax" - considerably less well known as The Energy Tax Act of 1978 - when I was driving Dodge's new Challenger SRT Hellcat last week. Unsurprisingly for a car that can burn 1.5 gallons of gas per minute at max tilt, theoretically able to empty a full tank of premium in about 13 minutes, the Hellcat will be subject to the Gas Guzzler Tax schedule when it goes on sale.
