The Fargo is a cool truck! Doug has done aa lot of work to the former  Dept.of Forestry /6 truck 
The 68 383 came from a C body (gasp! LOL)
He installed the power windows himself and all the nice custom touches to give that 70's flavour.Slotted mags,wooden steering wheel,vintage valve covers,etc..
Glad to have you aboard Doug!
He calls me as much as Polaraco does!! Sheesh!! LOL
Now the rest of the world will know how much you whine..LOL!!! Just kidding!!

WELCOME!! Very cool truck!!  Always liked the '70s trucks, I had a
'77 3/4 ton I used for pulling the horse trailer... So I guess in CA a
Dippy was called a Caravelle? Here it was a tinny FWD K-car derivative
in the mid 80s as I recall...

Yep,the Caravelle was an M body up here in Canuckville,eh?
From 1977 to 1987,IIRC.
The stretched  K-car Caravelle was here as well.

I've always liked the '70s Dodge trucks.  I wasn't aware they built them in Canada that late using the Fargo name.  NICE!

1972 was the last year in Canada for the Fargo name on trucks and vans.

A pickup is almost fins isn't it?
 
By the way, we do cater to Pick-ups from 1955 to 1973 also.  But we seem to be running into the 80's now.   Sheeesh
