​​​​As the desirability and collectability of these vehicles continue to increase we felt it was time to collect the most important information and consolidate it into a manual. This is the first of its kind comprehensive technical reference manual related to Dodge and Plymouth Trucks and SUV’s. The core concentration of the material is between the production years 1972-82. However, there is VIN, serial number information covering trucks from the 1920’s to 1990’s. This is not your run of the mill coffee table book.
This reference manual will assist the restorer, journeyman, enthusiast, hobbyist, event judges, restorer, car clubs and collector to understand the finer points of Trucks and SUV’s. The contents of this manual covers, VIN tags, serial numbers, trim tags, powertrain identification, fasteners, factory documentation, technical illustrations, broadcast sheets, confidential frame stamps, etc. This guide will help you sell, buy, judge or restore your vehicle with confidence.
This manual is spiral bound with laminated covers. It consists of over 450 pages with a combination of color and black and white images printed on heavyweight paper.

Like we always say “Fill your library before you fill your garage”

 Available now is this Red Dodge die-cut tailgate decal, made to exact Dodge specs from the original blueprints.  This decal is for the person that doesn't want to go through the extra steps of using the "reverse out" decal, (shown below).  It is easier to use and once it's on, you are done.  


Below is a picture of the Red Dodge painted on the lower tailgate wood, using a reverse-out vinyl die-cut decal.  This process duplicates the original "silkscreened" process produced by Beyster Lumber on the original wood supplied to Dodge, made to exact Dodge specs from the original blueprints.  

(Comes with complete installation instructions)
