Is this truck worth anything?

Hey guys, new to the forum here. I'm trying to get some advice on a truck I just purchased. It's a 1977 Dodge D100 5.9 360 2wd single cab longbox.73,000 original km. Trying to decide if a truck like this is worth a full restoration? Are these a desired truck? Do people ever restore them? Or are these a dime a dozen sort of deal? Not very familiar with classics and there values. I am a light duty auto mechanic and shouldnt have many problems doing the job. I just want to make sure it's worth the time and money. Any advice would be appreciated!

If, to be honest, your choice isn't that bad. But, it depends on what you want to do with that truck in the future. The truck is quite old, so you will need to repair it somehow. Better find some stations which can fix it. And the principal thing is that the probable company that made the truck doesn't make auto parts for your model. Lookup for a used truck and check https://wealthtender.com/insights/money-management/questions-to-ask-when-buying-a-used-car/ before buying something. Let's hope that you will get the best option.

So old and only 73 000 km? This is amazing, it's very rare that you managed to find one with such a low mileage. Usually, trucks which were produced in that year, have at least half a million km mileage. Mine is from the beginning of 2000's, and it's in a very good shape. I found this offer on

, and I am very glad, because I saved a lot of money by not buying a new one. I don't think that it's worth buying new trucks for a cosmic price, when there are so many used, but in perfect condition.

      FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky.
      Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-bay facility and mobile repair units in addition to 24/7 roadside support.
      The Service Center at 355 Farmington Ave. will team up with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, “creating a complete value proposition for customers,” according to FleetPride. Adkins and his son, Jake, will remain involved in the day-to-day operations.
      “This is an outstanding opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate the access to a nationwide network of parts and service, and our employees will have the ability to grow and advance in FleetPride’s new service organization.”
      “We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, general manager and vice president of service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted independent service providers, which customers have come to depend on, in Louisville.”
      “Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with owners of parts and service companies who are seeking a succession plan, or a partner that can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers. We look forward to the partnership with the Nationwide Truck Service team to carry on their tradition of service excellence while expanding service capabilities to our existing customers including large regional and national fleets.”
      FleetPride continues to grow its national parts and service operations. If you are interested in learning more about how to become part of the FleetPride network, visit

      I didn't think it would be this hard, but having no luck at all with the logo on this Hubcap made into a paperweight.
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Dana Incorporated showcased its newly customized Jeep Gladiator at the recent Winter X Games Aspen 2022. 
      Featuring an Ultimate Dana 60 front axle and an Ultimate Dana 80 prototype rear axle, along with Spicer performance 1350 driveshafts, “this one-of-a-kind vehicle is destined to be the talk of off-road events across the country,” Dana said in a news release.
      “Our friends at Expedition Vehicle Outfitters did an incredible job building this custom off-road vehicle,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana.  “We are calling this adventure rig ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ because it is loaded with premium-performing Dana and Spicer parts, along with other accessories to explore the wilderness for long durations of time. Having it on display will show off-road enthusiasts how Dana aftermarket performance parts enhance durability and performance, even in extremely rugged conditions.”
      A unique feature of the Dana-modified Jeep Gladiator truck is that some of the body components – including a majority of the vehicle’s bed – were built using the remnants of a 19th-century steel bridge that was located in Sydney, Ohio. 
      To further enhance overlanding excursions, a snowmobile track system from HellTraxx will provide deep-powder winter access when the vehicle is not traversing rugged trails in the summer.  Top-of-the-line upgrades such as lights, shocks and suspension are added features, and a water-filtration system, stove and tent are included for extended outdoor adventures.
      “We know ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ will be a show-stopper at off-road events,” said Nunnery.  “We encourage all serious off-roaders and campers to stop by and check out this incredible vehicle and see how Dana can help them upgrade their own off-road vehicles.”
