1984 Dodge Ram 50

This was my dad's truck, which he bought new. Manufactured for Chrysler by Mitsubishi Motors. Originally it was silver with red graphics, he eventually painted it a woodland camouflage pattern, then finally the flat black seen here. I didn't drive this one much, I didn't particularly like it when it was new, but I liked it better once it got older (it rattled and clanged, like what I think of a truck).

Fuel tank needed replaced, when it needed replaced a second time and broke the fuel pump my dad converted it to gravity feed by fastened a plastic marine fuel tank atop the sideboard just behind driver door and connected it to the fuel line. Numerous mechanical problems and hasn't been ran for several years.

Currently rotting in the back yard.
