Too right.

That was an early '65 with the shorter wheelbase, 122"? and the "cab/axle" measurement was the difference. I think they changed it to the longer CA length in mid to late '65, because camper trucks were becoming more popular? I didn't know anything about this prior to owning that '65, I found out by planning to put as service box one it... Not a lot of service boxes floating around for that particular CA spacing...


The bed changed a lot also, with the inner wall to protect the outside sheetmetal, and the long tailights instead of the round ones.

The old truck high up in the woods over upper Spirit Lake ID?

Thx ;-)


I'd been going mostly up (steeply in places) for 6 miles when I shot that. Not too far after that, the road leveled out and dead ended. I got out and walked around, mindful of moose and bears. There were big patches of snow on the ground in shady areas still, which surprised me because it was mid June.


The picture is in a photo album, no digital cameras yet...

Here's my '69 Fargo W100, pulled the seized 318 and dropped in a strong running 360, ported J heads, 10:1, .506 Purple cam. Put in a new clutch, going through the truck and making it drivable. Hoping to have it on the road by early summer.

At least the insurance is cheap, about $15 per month.

My 66 W100 barely gets that much use. And it also takes up half the garage and slowly gets hidden behind stuff.Out two times this summer and insurance expires at end of month. Need to take for a drive before then. :pale

Working on it. Got it for my 15 year old to learn how to drive a clutch and work on a truck. He will keep it in the county and use it to get to school and back. Will probably see a lot of snow.
