  • 52 fargo custom

    my dad, brother and i are kinda cleaning up the spare parts lying around the yard. we are doing this by building a custom:ROFLMAO: we are taking my 75 d 100 318 auto and putting my dads 52 fargo body on it. the fargo started out as a bin truck hauling apple's s being a 2 1/2 ton it has different fenders than a dodge pickup of the same year. should be a cool custom. any problems i come across will be asked about in the trucks section any help or comments would be cool.

      Friend is building a 56 (I think) Fargo 331 hemi decided to use a 92 Dakota frame had to shortened (professionally) a bit for it to sit right on. So the 331 is rebuilt and done, the SB 727 it is adapted to is rebuilt and ready frame is done rest is coming along but rebuilding the 360 in his Cuda as slowed things down a bit!!
      Looks like a need project

            a bit of a mock up of how it will look

            from the front. and dodgeboy8 fargo was an independant compony bought by the dodge brothers in the early 30's i beleve. they made mosty industrial trucks. in canada dodge called some of there trucks fargo's i think all of the fargo trucks where made in canada too. this one was and ive been told they all where.
