Richard Gross Jr. won’t deny that his ’73 Dodge 3/4-ton is aesthetically challenged. But he says it’s under construction. The engine has been rebuilt, the stock 318 was bored 0.030 over and an Erson cam was installed, the radiator was recored, and a Carter AFB sits on top. The rest of the drivetrain is as follows: a four-speed tranny, an NP205 transfer case, a Dana 44 up front, and a Dana 60 in the rear. There’s no power steering to turn the 36-inch meats, and Richard has a broken steering gear to prove that it takes real muscle to move ’em. All this cost Richard $500. What a deal.
