Tulsa's Buried Belvedere Lid Section #2 being removed. These are some of the first glimpses of the car that had been buried 50 years.

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 http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/dodgerestoration.htm 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTaaCjzmg1E

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.
