#18 Driven by Joe Ruttman
Restored 2004

STK 2635 1998 Dodge Dana Race Truck

In 1998 the Dana Corporation announced that it would be the primary sponsor of a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series racing team owned by Bobby Hamilton. This fully restored (2004) Dodge 'Dana' is one of five virtually identical trucks that were built, crewed and campaigned by Bobby during the1998 season. (Bobby actually drove the #4 truck and our #18 was driven by Joe Ruttman.) Since its retirement, the current owner (14 yrs.) has only used the Dodge as an educational tool – traveling around Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina to promote the Series. The truck remains in 'factory trim' as raced by the Dana team. The chassis is custom built and the power plant is a MOPAR 'R' series LA motor. These castings were high iron/nickel content 'race-only' blocks. Originally designed as a 318ci engine, this race spec version is 355ci and is fitted with MOPAR aluminum heads that contain racing valves/springs matched to a high-lift roller cam. The engine is fitted with a high-rise aluminum intake, dual-line Holley and dry sump oiling system. It is backed by a Doug Nash wide-ratio 4-speed with fine-spline 'GM' style input shaft. The clutch is a NASCAR 3-disk brass design with HD hydraulic master/slave cylinders. The undercarriage is fitted with a Ford 9” differential and race suspension. Front A-arms are adjustable with coil springs for varying track conditions and the rear uses trailing arms with track locators on each side. This Dodge Dana race truck is just as it was raced 20 years ago - a piece of NASCAR history. It is being sold with a Bill of Sale only. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
