Dodge has not made pickups based on passenger cars so I decided to create one. I had a junk Revell Coronet R/T body and some its parts.

Here I started:

After some cutting, filling, sanding gluing and painting pickup was born

Engine is slant six with turbo.

Chassis has been modified from stock and get brake and fuel lines.

It was fun to make although it took 6 months to finnish.

Nice! My only comment would be that I would have put the rear glass at a more vertical angle.

Looking at that build , it certainly looks like Chrysler missed a financial opportunity to have built a Ram truck!

That is really creative! The slant 6 turbo was a surprise - I expected to see a 383 or 426 hemi! Great work on this model!

Kari , that is one of the nicest projects I have seen in some time !

Its wood-floor is gorgeous !

That oxidiser-infused 225 Slant Six was truly a surprise ; a welcomed surprise at that !

 

Excellent work !

Mopar missed the boat on this one. Would have given the Ranchero and El Camino a run for their money. Great idea and build.
