1967 Dodge Movie Truck Photo Gallery
This project is going to be quite a job!

We located an extremely tired 1967 Dodge D200 Pick Up Truck for a special project for a Movie Company.

This Dodge D200 truck had been sitting in a field for approximately 30 years rusting away before we located it for this project.

It had the original "Slant 6" motor. It was seized from sitting....

After quite a bit of work we were able to start and run the motor. It sounds great!

Watch the YouTube video with the engine running here http://bit.ly/1HoxUX0



The truck had a 4 speed manual transmission on the floor, which needed to be replaced with an automatic transmission with the shifter being relocated to the column.

The movie company had several requirements for this custom build. It needs to start, stop and drive. Carry three actors/actresses safely in the cab, look rustic and tired visually, but be safe and reliable.

After a few brain storming sessions, we were able to come up with a theme for this "movie star truck".

With the movie being filmed in Halifax, Nova Scotia the fishing theme with a lot of colour on the truck seemed to fit!

Once the motor was running and tuned up, the manual transmission was removed and an automatic transmission was obtained and freshened up. Transmission crossmember supports were fabricated and mounts were also made from scratch. A steering column and wheel were obtained and modified to fit the truck.

We made new linkage and connections for the carb, shifter, gas pedal and brakes. The braking system was completely redone. A new brake master cylinder was installed, all new brake lines, flex lines, new brake shoes, springs and adjusters were installed. All the bearings were replaced with new also.

The rear differential plate was removed, fluid drained and new gear oil installed and the plate was resealed. New axle seals were also installed.

With the new radiator in place and fluids added, the mechanical work was well under way. Our attention turned to the structural and body of the truck.

The cab floor and rocker panel areas received new square tubing and new supports, new sheet steel was fabricated for the floors and the cab hinge areas were reinforced for the new "custom hinges" to hang the doors. Old street signs were obtained to help with the rustic appearance and to cover the new materials that were used to strengthen the vehicle.

This trucks bed section was removed and replaced with a Chevrolet truck bed with the stepside fenders removed. New bed supports were made with square tubing and bolted to the truck frame correctly. The bed floor received a new sheet of heavy duty 3/4 Inch plywood and street signs covered the painted bed floor.

At this point of the build, this is where the "creative side" came out. We dry fitted several items for the mock up for the "new" rear fenders. We settled with a front fender from a VW Beetle and the other fender is from a 1950's Oldsmobile.

We continued with adding several unique features to the truck. Virtually every item on the truck appears to be ready to fall off, but is very secure and safe.

Walking around the truck, it gives you the impression that the owner of the truck did this all himself in his driveway, obviously a passion to keep his old truck going and display his passion for fishing!

The truck received numerous test miles, and performed extremely well.

Stay tuned as this very unique build continues......
