Grab those bucket seats. If I'm not mistaken, they are the same for the A100, and were used in the factory Hemi Darts and 'Cuda's.

Allan would be a good guy to ask to make sure.

I have to tilt the cab to unbolt the seats from underside, maybe I will keep the entire cab!!!

Seem to have a nice original ''RPM'' in that truck.

That's what I said to Larry (the owner of the yard) but he just buy an enclose car trailer for his race car (Boss 302).

I can ask him how much he want for the Fargo.

Yes, it's complete! I remove and keep the missing parts in the pics: grill, headlamp rings, etc.

Just call Larry, he can remove the fire truck box and scale the rest and sell it at twenty cents per pounds ($0.20) if you are OK to buy it.

The engine is a 361 ci. in. gas engine

The truck is locate near Sorel, Québec. If you need more infos, just say so!

You're welcome to ask any questions Bruce.

Like you see, they put a truck over the Fargo and it ''dent'' the top of the cab (and the step). All the mechanicals are there but I never tried to make it running. If I remember well, around 60,000 miles on the odometer.

That is a recycling yard, so they pile trucks and buses to dismantle them in winter time. They didn't get to the Fargo yet!!

It's not the first cabover that I tried to save (Dodge, International, etc) and they are all ex fire trucks so in relatively in good condition for this part of the world. If I ask to take it out of the hole and put it aside for better pics, it won't last long. Larry's brother is not a car guy!!!

You're welcome. If you want just the frame and cab, you won't have the fire truck stuff. The wheelbase is 129 inches.

I will send you a PM with the phone number of Larry.

haha, yeah for sure alan. just noticed there is two dragsters in there, i have a quote going with u ship and its done to $1400 thats really not bad if you think cause its about a 2000 klm trip for me and im sure i would burn up at least $700 worth of fuel and then stay over night somewhere for $200 with a meal plus odds and ends, so thats handy to a grand this way i dont have to leave the house.
