I picked this truck up for 900 bucks. I am in the process of converting it to a carbureted 4.3. Someone started it but I guess I’ll finish it. All the engine front parts were missing and there's a lot to still do. I needed another truck as my ‘93 Ford Ranger is going to need a lot of TLC, but that's another story.
I bought my Dodge 2nd hand. My daughter picked it out on the lot with 54,000 miles on it. It currently has 210,000 miles on, factory paint all original. I installed updated gauge cluster with all gauges on it from another year, installed auto dimming review mirror, dodge emblems to the front fenders. This car has taken me and up and down the east coast with cheerleading comps, to the beach several times, through the storms and ice and snow, cranks up every time and its ready to ride, this is my trusty stead.
My father and I purchased this bad boy roughly about 3 years ago in my parents’ home town of Fresnillo Zacatecas. You could say it was abandoned in a ranch, just sitting there going to waste. That's when we took the initiative and purchased this truck. We just couldn't let such a beautiful Cheyenne just sit there and rot. What other people saw as a "waste." We saw nothing but potential and beauty.
I bought it about 2 years ago. It has a 2.2 liter engine with a five speed in it. She had about 200,000 miles on her and still running strong. I bought her to make a prostreet out of it. I have done most of the work myself. I did all the body work and paint, put the engine it and trans which is a 355 / 700f4 trans. It is a narrowed 8.8 Ford rear end with disc brakes and 456 gears. It is a blast to drive and I would not sell it for any amount of money.
