Been seeing a Dodge power ram that has been sitting in a parking lot for years now behind a shopping center. About 2 years of just looking to the back of the lot and saying, hey look at that old dodge truck back there. So around august of this year I decided to go over and look at it. As I got closer I realized that it wasn't just a 2wd it was a Power Ram! and it was a manual with a creeper gear! So I told my dad that we should try and buy it since he sold his 89 a few years back to one of his friends and miss's it. But he really didn't seen to interested so I forgot about it to. Then about 2 months ago we just happened to be in Hatboro and he was with us so I told him he has to go back and see it up close, Since he didn't believe me that it was the np435 trans. Well he saw it and was feeling sick at the time so he hardly even looked at it. But I just kept bothering my parents that we should try and buy it. after a few weeks my dad started to like the idea that he could get basically his old truck back and one in better shape. He said the only reason that he would want that truck is because it has that transmission in it, the same one his 89 had. So me, him, and my friend drove over in my Ramcharger to put a note on it. To make a long story short, I told them the guys probably just gonna throw the note away, lets just find the owner. We found him, talked to him, he said he'd sell it for the right price, gotten offers for $1500 for the bed trans and engine, so I thought oh well so much for buying that for a good price to fix up.
But we gave him our # anyway, never thought he would call back, untill he did about 2 weeks ago, he said he wanted to sell it, said some other guy wants the engine and trans for $500, but if I want the whole truck to restore I could have it for $500. So I bought it and now its mine. It should be a fun summer project for me and some friends.
