No better name than Far-Go for a durable vehicle!
Great old truck – love the patina on the hood. I’m curious about what’s under that hood. With the mag wheels I thought it would likely be a V8, but a tough old truck needs a tough old engine, and for a Mopar that would mean a Slant Six. Whatever provides the motivation, it’s great to see one of these old beasts still on the job. Good catch!
Nice truck. The only place I’ve seen Fargo’s, or at least noticed them, was on a vacation to Turkey four years ago. Interestingly, I think I see more BC plated Delica’s in California now than I ever saw Canadian-branded domestics like Meteors or Laurentians back in the day. But at least I was aware of those … I only heard of Fargo’s after discovering CC.
Fargo trucks were once a common sight here in Canada, and in other countries as well – they were built for export.
Here’s the Wikipedia link:
It just now occurs to me that FARGO has more unique letters to the name than DODGE
I find these final versions interesting. The grille was toned down to something fairly normal looking. But where the 65-67 used a straight side moulding to disguise the dipped ridge at the rear of the bed, these went back to highlighting it.
I wonder if there was ever a dealer selling these named Wells. A Wells Fargo plate or decal on the back would be fun.
The O is the only letter Chrysler could reuse… I wonder if they’re the same part.
R U sure?
Never seen a Fargo, but I think I want one now.
This is a “truck’s truck”, for real. In the best way.
