RARE 1978 DODGE W200 ADVENTURER CLUB CAB PICKUP! ORIGINAL, RUST FREE, SURVIVOR!
This 1978 Dodge W200 Adventurer Club Cab is a very cool find. This is a very cool and very rare truck....you just don't see a lot of these. This was recently purchased by a mechanic from an estate on the West Coast. His idea was to do a complete restoration, but once he got it home and saw the originality and how clean it was he couldn't bring himself to ruin the originality so instead he did a complete mechanical restoration. This truck was completely gone through mechanically and brought up to snuff to make it a reliable and nice driving truck. He told us that the parts he replaced were original and the mileage is believed to be original.
The body on this truck is rust free and solid. Obviously there is going to be some patina, as you can see in the pictures, and the paint is original. This gives the truck a very cool look and personally I would leave it just the way it is. The interior is unbelievably clean! It has factory gauges which are working, factory tach which is working, and factory clock which is not working. Original Seat and original carpet are in great condition and the factory radio still works!
Mechanically this truck is amazing. The 440 V8 engine runs great and fires up immediately. It is all original except for a new Edelbrock Carb and was recently tuned up, new hoses and belts, new battery and cables, and oil change. The transmission is the 727 Automatic that was just serviced and shifts excellent. It has the NP203 Transfer Case with fresh fluid, new u-joints, new carrier bearing, new brake hoses and brakes serviced. Axles are both Dana 60's with 4.10 gears. He also replaced front hubs and added new shocks all around. New Tires and new exhaust were also added. As stated previously, this truck has been mechanically gone through and is ready to roll. It was made into a dependable driver for someone.
