I'm a bit curious about the 65-67 truck in background too.

With a 25 year collection you may be surprised at whats out there.
Tampa is a bit of a drive for you isn't it?

Tampa is about two hours for me. Love that truck you posted. Looks almost exactly like my first vehicle, except the Power Wagon part. Mine was '67 D100 utiline, short bed, 318, red.

67 must have been a change over year.

Some I see are that grill and others are this grill.
I had a 71 and it was a tank.
You didn't even have to remove the hood to change the engine.

For a long time I thought 65, 66 and 67 had the grille the red one has. That's the one mine had. But someone on other forum said they could be had with two different grilles. So maybe that's it, and 67 was a change over mid year. Yes! My hood would flip all the open and back to the windshield  8)

I wish they would have kept the hood in opening that way.
I dread having to take the hood off every time I change an engine.
The older I get the harder it is to muscle that hood off and on.
I had to get help on lifting this one that I'm working on because of the height.

Come to find out after I got it running that it has a sure grip in the rear with 323 gears.
I put a 88 Diplomat Roller 318 engine in it with a 360 truck cam.
The engine came out of a totaled front end collision, so bad that it punched a hole in the timing cover behind the water pump.
It lives on and man this thing runs absolutely excellent!.
This pic is before I did the last little things like plug wires.

I really want to keep this one and add it to my collection.
But I can't keep them all and I ran out of 2wd long beds to sell. :D

My dream is to vacation for a week at the MOPAR Ranch in East TX, and just bask in the glow of the collection, and watch the master at work as he would create yet another masterpiece!
