There is more than meets the eye, though. While it may be a ’63 Crew Cab, the ramp truck it replicates is a 1965 model. As for the chassis, a 1977 Dodge M500 motorhome was deemed perfect for hauling a vintage car such as the pictured Plymouth A/FX replica. We’re sorry to mention that that the A/FX isn’t included.
A visual aspect that doesn’t quite fit the bill is the contrast between the patina of the cabin next to the as-new condition of the bed. Still, the finished product is growing on us. Currently located in Pierce, Colorado, the Dodge NASCAR ramp truck at hand is 100% functional. It’s a capable machine to do the long haul, alright. As for the bed, the owner built it in the style of a Baker hauler bed, electric winch included.
The 221-inch (561.34 centimeters) wheelbase is thoroughly impressive, but the clean condition of the interior is even better. Under the hood, you’ll find a mammoth 440 cubic-inch (7.2-liter) V8 connected to a 727 auto and a Dana 70 heavy-duty axle. Before you head on to Craiglist to check out this workhorse, you may be interested to find out that the motor sits 6 inches (15.24 cm) lower in the motorhome chassis than it would have in a real Crew Cab's engine bay. How about that for "because racecar" attitude with a twist?
