Saw a cool Fargo...
« on: April 20, 2013, 08:52:52 PM »


I was doing one of my deliveries the other day, out of town I might ad,
and a very nice early 70's power wagon came rattling in.  Yup
rattling...had a cummins in it!  So the guy was sitting in drive thru so
 I decided to talk to him briefly about his truck.

I asked what
year the drivetrain was...he said it was a 93.  I asked if he got the
intercooler and everything behind the stock sheet metal and
grille...Yup.  The I asked what year the truck was...He said it is a
factory 1972 Fargo Power wagon W300 one ton regular cab!!  I knew how
rare that was and told him.  He was thrilled that I actually knew what
the heck he was talking about.  He says most people hear what it is and
shrug their shoulders and walk away.  It was an absolutely gorgeous
truck, and I wish I was carrying my camera at the time.  Would have
loved to see under the hood too. ;)

That's cool! Didn't know they still sold Fargo trucks in the 70s... I know where there's a very solid  unrestored '38 Plymouth Pickup, sitting in a barn about 10 miles from my home... very tempting!

There are a couple of those 38 Plymouth pickups for sale on craigslist, one about 20 miles from me, the other not sure. Nice shape, a little more than I want to pay for at this point, but very complete and drive.

1972 was the last year for the "Fargo" in Canada....so that makes his truck even rarer.  Hope to have him come by again so I can snap a few pics.
