First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before shooting the vid!

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
1940 Dodge 3 ton truck WW2
Some old footage from 2000 showing the Dodge's six cylinder engine fired
up. It was leaking a little oil, the tyres were all soft, and the fuel and
ignition were jury-rigged together to make it all work. The footage isn't
the best as it was lifted from a 10-year old VHS tape, transferred to DVD,
converted, then edited into an mpeg file.
This 3 ton truck has been off the road since the mid 1950s. I'm always
looking for spare parts for the "big" engine - 331 cu in - so if you can
help, please get in touch. I also need a spare wheel - 10 stud, 20"
diameter, by Budd, split rim.
The ongoing restoration of this lorry can be followed on
Footage of the truck's engine running in 2011, for the first time since a
comprehensive overhaul, can now be seen on this later video:
