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.

Dodge has added a bit of spice to its Hemi-powered Challenger for 2013, offering up this new Redline package that makes its official debut at the Chicago Auto Show. The R/T Redline builds on the Rallye Redline kit that was created for the V6 Challenger, and we like how these subtle changes add to the muscle coupe's already classic styling.

In addition to the black chrome 20-inch wheels with red accents, the R/T Redline adds subtle graphics along the beltline. Inside, cars equipped with the six-speed manual transmission get a performance tuned exhaust that allows the engine to send a full 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. (Redline Challengers with the five-speed automatic produce 372 hp and 400 lb-ft.)
The Redline package retails for $1,995 and can be had on both Challenger R/T and R/T Plus models. Scroll down for the full press blast.
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:
Not too long ago, Chevrolet got itself into some trouble by throwing the SS badge on just about everything it produced, so I've always been a little hesitant about the seemingly excessive use of the R/T nameplate on Dodge vehicles. For the 2013 model year, every model in Dodge's lineup has an R/T trim level from Dart all the way up to the Durango. Although the R/T name used to signified models made for road and track, I doubt anyone would be delusional enough to assume the Durango - and some of the other models wearing this badge - are suited for any sort of track duty.
Still, when this 2013 Dodge Durango R/T rolled up for me to drive for the week, I couldn't help but take in its big, mean and imposing stance. Sure, if I had my choice of buying any of the Dodge R/T products, the Charger and Challenger would be my top picks for sure, but it's easy to say that the Durango would be a close third - far above the R/T versions of the Avenger, Journey and Grand Caravan.
