1966 Dodge A100 By Charlie Buzzell

 My truck is a 1966 Dodge A-100. It was totally stock when I bought it for $700. It took about seven years of part time work to construct. A 1/8" steel plate "U" frame was installed over the original unibody frame to strengthen the chassis.
 
 The engine is a 1968 426 Street Hemi with a 6-71 blower with two Holley 600 carbs. The transmission is a 727 hemi unit with a short tailshaft assembly driving into a New Process P204 transfer case which "V" drives back into an 8-3/4" Posi rear axle with 3:23 ratio (6:46 Effective ratio w/transfer in low range) Ring & pinion rotate in reverse with this setup.
 
 A large four core radiator and electric fan are located in the original engine doghouse in the cab. I did all the work at home except the bodywork and paint. The truck was driven to Carlisle in 1996 (600 miles) and got 10.6 MPG on the interstate. It's a fun street driver, gets taken to a couple of car shows each year and running it through the gears is great therapy after a hard day at the office.
 
Thanks
Charlie Buzzell
