Here is a 1942 dodge powerwagon WC truck that I use hauling my hay wagon. It started life as a military vehicle open cab truck. It is 4  wheel drive and it does work. It is equiped with the 4:89 gears both front and rear. I  installed a closed cab from a 1947 dodge truck and a homemade 6 foot by 6 foot flatbed. This truck is not stock but modifiied with the following: The engine is a Chevrolet 350 Small block bored .030 with a RV cam and roller rockers. Sitting on top is an Elderbrock carb. and intake.There are two electric fans in front of the original radiator to keep it cool aswell as a transmission cooler to keep the trans. cool. It has side pipe mufflers mounted behind the cab as stacks. It has electronic ignition and a 350 turbo automatic transmission with shift kit tied to the original single speed transfer case. I reinstalled the original hand parking brake back on it when doing the conversion.I installed power brakes(the booster and master cylinder are off a 1997 dodge 1500) on the truck with disc. brakes on the front (1978 chevrolet calipers and rotors)and used the original 14 inch drum brakes on the rear. It also has power steering but the steering is a little loose and leaking  from the gear box. The steering linkages are from a M37 military truck.I machined a custom dash cluster and used 1950's dodge passenger car gauges(they are not hooked up). The seats are from a 1991 honda crx and aren't mounted  down. It has a 11 gallon fuel cell mounted under the back of the bed with an access  through the bed. The battery box  is also under the bed behind the cab.The tachometer works as well as the 1942 GMC heater box and the roll out windshield. The head lights and tail lights work aswell  as do the blackout lights although the blackout lights aren't hooked up.The tires are about worn out and the driverside outer rear tire has a bad valve stem so it doesn't hold air for very long. This is not a new truck it does have age on it as it is a 71 year old truck.There is the usual rust associated with a truck this old. There aren't any turn signals on it as it isn't street legal.This truck doesn't have a title and is for sell as is. I reserve the right to cancel this auction at any time as I also have it forsale localy. Winning bidder is responsible for pick up and transporting it. I require $1000.00 deposit within 24 hours of auction end and full payment  Required within 7 days of auction close.

Dodge engineers trying to shoehorn Pentastar into Dart?

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 17:31:00 EST

The fact that the Dart's launch has been a pretty dismal affair isn't what we'd call secret. Judging by its mounting inventories and poor critical reception, Dodge's successor to its unloved Caliber has struggled since it hit the market. And while both of those are difficult problems to address, at least their cause is well known - the powertrain.
Even Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has acknowledged that the powertrain options in the Dart are substandard, admitting at January's Detroit Auto Show that the powertrains are "less than ideal." Leading with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Fiat 500 Abarth left a bad taste in the mouths of consumers thanks to the laggy engine and dead throttle response (to say nothing of the manual and dual-clutch gearboxes that needed more refinement). The addition of the 184-horsepower 2.4-liter Tigershark in the Dart GT has helped matters some, but apparently Auburn Hills doesn't think it's quite enough.
If rumors are to be believed - get that salt ready - a possible solution may be in the works. A report from Allpar is claiming that Dodge is considering fitting a Pentastar V6 into the Dart's engine bay. As the Mopar-obsessed website points out, the critically acclaimed Pentastar is available in three different sizes - 3.0 liters, 3.2 liters and the original 3.6 liters. We don't get the 3.0 here in the US, but the 3.2 can be found in the new Jeep Cherokee and the 3.6 has been seemingly fitted to every model Chrysler can shoehorn it into.

Watch this Dodge Viper get clawed to death

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 12:30:00 EST

There's a scene in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale, where Daniel Craig's Agent 007 is captured by villain Le Chiffre, played by Mads Mikkelsen. Le Chiffre tortures Bond in a scene that is rather difficult to watch (especially for blokes) and impossible to describe on these digital pages (Google at your own risk). This video is the automotive equivalent of the Casino Royale torture scene.
It shows a Dodge Viper - a late, first-generation GTS judging by the center-exit exhausts - getting assaulted by a giant piece of heavy equipment. The large claw shows no mercy on the V10-powered sports car, rending its muscular curves into pieces and then running it over, just for good measure. It's a painful video to watch (and hear!), made worse because we don't know what the Viper did to deserve such a fate. About a third of the way through the video, the cameraman indicates that the man with the claw is a new operator from Chrysler, and it appears there may be some fire damage, but beyond that, we don't have much to go on.
Scroll down for the video but be warned, it isn't for the faint of heart.

Chrysler recalling over 280k minivans because airbags may deploy on wrong side

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 16:29:00 EST

Chrysler has issued a recall for some 2013 Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and Ram C/V Tradesman vans built between May 10, 2012 and June 7, 2013. These vehicles may have a software error that would cause the wrong side (opposite side) airbags to deploy in a crash. With this defect, a left-side impact would cause the right-side airbag to deploy, etc.
The recall affects 281,500 vehicles in total: 224k in the US, 49,300 in Canada, 2,900 in Mexico and 5,300 in other locations. Chrysler will notify owners of effected vehicles, and reflash the offending occupant restraint control module to resolve the issue.
