Well I got it listed on Ebay today. If it sells fine, If it doesn't that's fine too.
Drove it all afternoon just for kicks.
Somebody on here needs to buy it.

I had a guy ask if I'd sell this without the motor and transmission. He wanted a 350 Chevy. I get the Chevy's are cheap and available thing but why would you take a perfectly good 440 Dodge motor out of a Dodge truck?

I'll be glad when this auction is over Friday! I'm tired of all the "NOISE'' and requests for hundreds of additional pics I've sent.

I don't have the patience to put up with people that can't build their own telling me how I should have built mine.

I'm thru bitching now.

Damn! What kind of idiot would want to pull the 440 to put in a 350 chevy As you said, I get that they are cheaper and available, but that only makes sense when you are building, not for something that already has a good and infinitely cooler engine in it!

Don't worry about it Pops. The guy probably can't afford your truck, but has a 350 and figures he could get the truck for a price he can afford and put his drivetrain in it. Stick to your guns, your price is way too good and someone will see that.

I agree with all of you guys; strongly agree.
I especially like your saying, " I don't have the patience to put up with people who can't build their own telling me how I should have built mine."
I'll stop now before I go on a rant.

I'd ask what kind of gas mileage you get, but since it doesn't have a speedo cable I'd guess about 35 to 40.

I'm sure some fool has already asked.
