Dodge d5n300 resto
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:25:17 AM »
Hi, I am looking for any info on a dodge d5n truck that I'm restoring, were there any dodges used by the army? Why I'm asking is that it's a dark green truck and Im having trouble finding out the paint code, it's Dulux 13209, it's proberly not a ex army vehicle but I would like to make sure so that I can restore it to its original condition.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum Matt, unfortunately I can't help with your question but hopefully someone who may be able to assist might be along before too long :)

Have you got any idea on the model/year of your Dodge ?

The army did have a few Dodge 4 ton traybacks in the 70s,as I remember......I remember a CMF one that rolled on the way up to Tin Can Bay,loaded with cans of softdrink.  They were very fast trucks,and often driven at 70mph+ on the north coast highway.
