Older Dodge crewcab questions

What years was the older body style crewcab shortbed trucks available? We have one at work doing plow duties, and I believe it is a '76. I would love to find one and turn it into a family snow truck. Any suggestions other than the forest service to find one?

the body style like the one you have at work was ended in 79 or 80, but crew cabs were made until 85 for civilians and until 93 for military/public services.

85 and older with a slight body style change in 81. I'm not saying that Duane is wrong, but every crew cab I've seen that claims to be newer than 85 is either an aftermarket conversion or an older truck with newer sheet metal/interior swapped on.

I happen to have an 83 with a CTD that is not quite finished for sale.

well, i know over on ramchargercentral.com, there are a few with crew cabs newer than 85. they were only offered to the good ole USofA government, and were obtained through sales and auctions. every once in a while you can find some long bed crew cabs on that government liquidation auction site. the 4x4s are more rare.

Most of the ones I have seen have been Air Force rigs- that is probably your best place to start, as they seem to have the best bodies.
