Rare special ordered Silver, 1 of 665 made.
The engine code J indicates that this truck came with a 400 big block, which was changed to the 440. Still a very rare big block truck. 440 4×4 short box step side, 9 1/4 rear end rebuilt both frt and rear diffs with 4.10 gears, new brakes front and rear, new master cylinder. New fuel pump, complete tune up wires, cap rotor and air filter. New ball joints, has flow master duel exhaust, 4″ lift with rancho suspension 33 x12.50 tires. The seat was reupholstered.
I bought 5 1/2 years ago maybe only 2 registered owners. Have new floor pan for drivers side heater core started leaking have one that goes with the truck. Thermoquad was just rebuilt and linkage and throttle blades were replated. Bed needs new wood. The cab, hood, core support, and passenger door are original, engine and trans, drive train, original lights and heater working, has new fuel tank sending unit, and fuel pump and filter. Cleaned out old fuel.
This truck was an experimental truck made november of 1975 and set the platform for the Warlock which was produced in June of 1976 restored worth 60k plus my original information came from Chrysler historic vehicle which they claimed the J was a 440 vin decoder shows otherwise. It doesn’t look like the engine was ever changed though!
