For your consideration is an extremely clean 2005 Chevrolet 3500 One Ton Dually Pick Up Truck with a Hodges Body Ramp Truck Conversion. Hodges Custom Haulers out of Kentucky is the country’s foremost company in the market today of converting Dually pickups into Ramp Truck Haulers. And at a cost of $15,000 for a conversion, you're almost getting the truck for free!
It is Equipped with the workhorse 6.0L V8 Engine and Automatic Transmission. This has plenty of power to haul whatever you need. I have had large Chevy Impalas or Bel Air’s on this bed and it pulls as strong as anything on the road. It gets about 12-13 MPG hauling a car, and or pulling a trailer. With the new emissions implemented by the Federal Government on new trucks, this honestly gets better fuel mileage than my 2015 Dodge Ram Diesel!! So much for tighter regulation…
It rides, drives, and handles like a dream; straight down the road with no shimmies, shakes, or vibrations. It’s extremely tight, and surprisingly a pleasure to drive. The miles are at 94,740. Garage kept and religiously maintained. The previous owner and I have used this machine to haul prized show cars to venues across the country. I did not want to break down on the side of the road at 2:00 in the morning with a $75,000 car on the back, so we never hesitated to perform any maintenance to this truck whatsoever. Truck has just been serviced, oil change, good belts and hoses, new brakes and lines, new Pennsylvania State Inspection.
This machine comes equipped with power steering, power brakes, 6 good tires, AM/FM/CD Stereo, Hodge Body w/ ramps and painted rear deck, Trailer Tow Package w/ electric plug, side storage boxes, Rear lighting, ample tie down hooks, and a fully operational Electric 9,000 lb winch. Whether you need to haul a car that runs, or doesn’t, the winch makes it a breeze to load anything, and by yourself as well. This rig is impressive when you pull up to a customers home! They think you paid $60,000 for it!!
Here is the deal with these types of trucks, and why I like them: These Hodge Body or Ramp Trucks are the loophole to hauling cars. You don't need a CDL and you can haul 2 cars. By hooking up a single car trailer to this rig, you stay under the 10,000 pound trailer requirement, and your total GVW is under 26,000 pounds. You can also register the truck personally, without the need of a DOT number, and it shows up to you insurance carrier or DOT just as a HD Chevy Truck. This is great for a car collector like myself or a small car dealer running to the auction to get a couple cars. Truck is registered for 15,000 lbs.
Overall, this Truck is a great opportunity to get behind the wheel of a turnkey Car Hauler at a fraction of the build cost. Whether you’re looking to haul a prized possession, transport your race car from track to track, or in business to make money, this unit can do it all!
