Mike Selesky's 1976 Ramcharger

This 1976 Dodge Ramcharger SE was purchased as a father son restoration project. Mike's son, Nick, is a total Dodge fanatic; along with Mike - (Nick's Daily Driver is a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab 4x4 Laramie with a 5.9 Cummins). Even though Nick could not drive when they started this project, he is now 22, and is a wildland firefighter, as well as quite a mechanic. Mike's family has a long history of giving all of their vehicles names. This Ramcharger was purchased from a retired Dodge service manager in Yucca, Arizona, and was originally purchased new from Chapman Dodge in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was a very rust free truck, but was not in running condition, and had been sitting for some time; before they found it.
