I have a one of a kind, but not in the sense that most people think. I bought this 84 Dodge for $300 7 or 8 years ago as a spare for my boy and I. One side was beat up from rolling downhill into a woods. As things go wrong with it, I just fix it with whatever I have or as cheaply as possible.
The ignition started giving problems so now it has an 81 Dodge distributor and a '73 GM ignition system. Same with the alternator. It's a GM one wire now.
My boy T-boned a guy that ran a stop sign. Got a $1000 check from that guys insurance, beat the fenders off the tires, and put in a radiator. Bungeed one headlight in place. ( it even stays aimed right!)
I left it out of gear in my yard a couple months ago. Rolled into the ditch 10 minutes later. Beat the fenders out again and had to re-aim the other headlight.
The wipers and heater fan run on household light switches. The hood safety latch is a piece of stiff wire. Installed a cheap battery disconnect. Completely rewired turn light switches.
I run Lucas hub oil in the tranny to keep it from leaking. Its a bear to shift in the winter.
There's more that I cant think of now.
I have a '78 Chevy heavy 3/4 ton I bought new in '78 that is my workhorse. I put a flatbed on it about 25 years ago.
