78 Dodge Adventurer pickup

Posted (edited) · Report post

This is a 78 Dodge Avenger LI'L Red Wagon that I changed to a base model trim except for the interior that kept the bucket seats. The 360 V8 was changed out with a 225 slant 6. I added wiring and plumbing under the hood including the brake lines. The resin bed came from eBay . Please enjoy and your comments are always appreciated.

I love that, even sits right, my Cousins had a '85 with the slant, it sat just like that.

Now that is a nice old Dodge. Brings back memories of a few trucks, just different colors.

Oh yeah, I am liking that a lot. In the 70s, my father owned the body shop that was attached to a Chrysler dealership.

Very nicely done! How was the bed? Good piece of resin did it require much work?

The resin bed was in good shape just a little sanding to smooth out the surface other wise it fit with out any modification.

Nice Adventurer. (that was the name of the trim package, not Avenger--Avenger is a modern FWD Dodge sedan). I like the color and wheel choice, the stance is perfect..pickups w/ a relatively empty bed usually sat high in back like that... I have one of those resin short beds along w/ a '79 4 headlight grille and hood, plan to do a replica of the '79 Power Wagon I learned to drive in..

I had them in my parts box but I believe they came with the A-100 Dodge van.
