    Here is the 57 D100 I recently picked up. I have hit a snag due to my lack of research. I got a low mileage 218 with a newly rebuilt 4 speed that came out of a 49 Dodge truck that I figured I could drop right in. Well after getting them both in the garage, I see the 49 bell housing mounts directly in the frame, not using a cross member like the 57 truck uses. Also, the z-bar is way in the wrong place, the master cylinder is pointed the wrong way. The list goes on. I am hoping I can find a C series bell I can use and the correct floating power front engine mount, as mine is also not right. If I can't find those things pretty quick I will sell this combo and go V8 like I really want to do any way. If anyone has parts, or would be interested in my 218/4 speed, please say so!

    Hey there, where in Colorado are you? Looks like a super straight truck you have! Do you happen to have the original transmission still lying around?

    Hey guys,

    Just picked up a desoto truck. I've always been an old Holden fan, first car and only recently sold was a 62 EJ sedan. I'm a furniture maker by trade and wanted an old classic to run around in, deliver tables, pick up timber etc. Going on the theme of old fashioned quality craftsmanship I thought it would be great to have an old truck to go with it. Any info you guys have on these would be appreciated. Not sure of the year, with the single screen I was thinking maybe 54-55? Pretty new to the mopar scene so have plenty to learn.

    I'll attach some pics.

    Cheers Heath

    thanks guys for the warm welcome , i live in Ireland and the dodge was stored in a local shed for over 20 years before we found out about it and managed to secure a deal to purchase it , the history of it as far as we can find is that it was imported to Ireland from the states back in 1952 as a standard pick up . than somehow it was badged into a hearse using aluminum sheeting , sadly they removed the rear of the cab during the refit ,

    it was seized when we got it but we managed to get it freed out and now it sits awaiting restoration ,
    i am going to have to try and source a replacement cab and rear tub for it and maybe some upgraded brakes and wiring ,

    these are a real rare entity here in Ireland and parts are not even heard of so i will have to get everything from overseas im afraid .

    some more pics .

    It would be a head-turner here in the U.S. for sure....and owning it in Ireland, would be even more of a interesting car from any visual you look at it....that would be one really cool car to be driving around in------------its your car, but it sure is cool, with lots of great potential....have fun!:)

    I love the look, I just fit the 295/50's on the rear and they tuck in well I think. Now to get everything else done.
