1965 Dodge Power Wagon Fire Truck, 250 gpm pump, equipment for fighting wildfires, or serving beer. Two seperate tanks, combined hold 150 Gallons of water, or two half barrels of beer. Tanks are insulated for ice and beverage storage, water, or both. Truck was refurbished in 2005. Paint is substantially good, but needs touch-up on floor areas. The hood and fenders can be buffed back to full color. All equipment shown stays with the truck and is in great shape. Tires are 80%, standard 9.00-16.00 Good Year Hi-Miler mud and snows with a "D" range. The 16,930 miles are original miles. All major components (engine, trans, tranfer case, etc) are the original components that were on the truck when it was built. I am the second owner of the truck, it came to directly from the fire company that was the original owner. The truck is geared low, (5.83 gears) and does a max speed of 45mph. The engine runs like a top once it warms up. No engine issues at all. The carb may need a rebuild at some point, but works fine otherwise. The clutch and tranmission are excellent, it shifts very smoothly, if you know how to drive a Power Wagon. (standard NP435 with syncros) Brakes are good, but bleed down if the truck is not run after about a month. The brake booster is not original to the truck and was added before I owned it, but is needed to stop it when fully loaded. (the truck is heavy!) Winch and PTO work excellent, it has been used to move things and pull things, but never the truck itself since I have owned it. I did not take this truck off road since I have owned it, and has been cared for in a great way. It has been moved outside and needs to be stored inside somewhere else, and that's why I am selling it. No room anymore. The driver's seat will need to be rebuilt, as will the bottom cushion for that seat. The truck will need a few dabs of paint here and there, but is ready for any parade, picnic, show, or general task requiring a strong truck with a winch. Included in the sale are 2-18 foot chains with hooks,(10k lbs) and 8k lbs snatch block. Winch has 150+ feet of 7/16 wire rope. Siren works good, but has no siren brake. Locking hubs on the front axle make the drive alot better, they are included. The truck has been a big hit at concerts in Philadelphia, Eagles games, fire company wet-downs and musters, benefits of all sorts, the list goes on. I will assist in any way for transportation of the truck, but expences and arrangements are entirely on the buyer. The truck is available for inspection by appointment ONLY. Do NOT show up expecting to see it when I am not here! Read this part again to be sure you understand! Any questions or appointments can be forwarded to me through ebay, or my phone number.....609-859-5433. I hope this truck finds a good home, good luck bidding. Last note....the truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.

Auto enthusiasts love a good debate, whether it's Mustang versus Camaro or Ferrari against Lamborghini. But how about a battle between two very different vintages of classic pickup trucks? In this case, the fight is between a 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express and a 1933 Ford Model 46 truck with a flathead V8.

The shootout comes courtesy of the internet series Generation Gap, and its concept is super-simple. One guy prefers classics, and the other likes newer rides. They choose a category, pick two vehicles and put them head to head. In this case, neither is exactly modern, though. The Ford is more than old enough to receive Social Security checks, and the Dodge is hardly a young whippersnapper.
Other than both being pickups, these two models were made to serve very different functions. The Li'l Red Express was basically the progenitor of today's muscle trucks, with a big V8 that made it one of the quickest new models in its day (admittedly, 1979 was a rough time for automotive performance). On the other hand, the '33 Ford was just meant to work, with little pretense for anything else. One of the hosts describes it as "the simplest, most difficult" vehicle he's driven because of the tricky double clutchwork necessary to shift gears. Scroll down to watch the video and try to decide which of these two American classics you would rather have in your garage.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and its Ram brand following a number of reports regarding the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup. According to 15 consumer complaints, the trucks' rear differential locked up while in other cases, the driveshaft separated at its connection to the diff.

Nearly half of the reports claim the truck was traveling at or above 50 miles per hour, while two consumers reported that the diff lockup/driveshaft separation sent their pickups into a spin. Most troubling, though, is that consumers reported little to no sound indicating there was a problem with their truck.
We reached out to Ram for additional information, such as how many vehicles may be affected or what equipment might be fitted that could cause the issue. Unfortunately, the company wasn't willing to elaborate on specifics.
As a reporter covering an auto show, the one opportunity you never want to miss is going to the Sergio Marchionne press briefing.
"This undertaking to bring Alfa back is a one-shot deal... We are not going to do this twice."
There just aren't that many real characters left in the auto industry. Marchionne, who sits atop both Chrysler and Fiat, is not only one of the smartest execs in the business, but also the most frank. Herein, a sample of the quotable always-sweatered executive:
