    Project Disco 50!

    Hello all.
    Just thought I'd say hello and let you all know what I found. We had a 79 Red and Black D50 Sport bought new by my dad. It was traded on a K car wagon in 83. I was walking in a junkyard in Nova Scotia Canada a couple of weeks ago and found an '80 sport. It originally came from Dwayne Lanes Chrysler Plymouth Dodge in Everett Washington. Was brought here be a relative of the original owner. I couldn't resist so I brought it home yesterday. It is original paint, Rusty, and has the 2.6 auto like our original one had. As part of the deal I got a spare Passenger door and and a spotless front passenger fender. There is also an almost perfect spare Dashpad and tailgate which come with it as well. I'll be heading back to get those in a couple of weeks. The only thing I really need are door bottoms and the drivers fender. It is rusty and dented. This thing fired right up on a prime last night!!! Click image for larger version.

    Hi and welcome to mightyram. That is awesome. At first glance anyone would think this truck was a dead loss but looks are deceiving. The interior doesn't appear to be a disaster. Take some pics once you've cleaned it up and checked it over. Your dad would get a kick out of this thing I'd bet. They are a really great little beast

    That was what Geronimo looked like when I bought him new. That is a rare stripping theme - only on early 1980 trucks, and only on the topline Sports - lessor Black Sports had the narrow stripes. The stripping codes are called out in the 1980 FSM. Welcome to the forum - we need more pics as you work on this gem in the rough!

    Awesome info. Sorry for the delay in responding. I have a friedn who owns a graphics business. He is going to take measurements and colour samples before the paint is disturbed. We are going to make it a project to reproduce the stripes correctly. I also had the little truck out for its first yard dive under its own power in 10 years. no brakes yet but I have all the brake parts now and a new fuel tank ordered. I also hear the water pump rattling. My son took a video of the little ride. Hope to post it soon.
