Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    Got this Sept. 12th, 2009 delivered for $400. Figured it was cheaper than hauling my uncle's F6 out of the woods 300+ miles away. Engine is freed up, but haven't tried starting it yet. I'm thinking of putting a wrecker bed on it, and will make a genuine yard truck. Not quite shop truck status, but will help in the heavy moves, while I find a small economical run-about.

    Hi Scott,
    Not too shabby Man... That was a great deal considering it was delivered. That looks a lot like a Marion dump bed I had on a '59 Chevy 2 ton. Is the bed and /or the hydraulics any good?

    Later Man...

    They said while they dragged the truck, he let off the clutch and operated the dump box. Everything worked. The box is a Galion 3yd, and the Hildy's Blue book shows this model in it. The book also shows Marions in there as well.

    I'm not sure but I think both Galion and Marion were made here in Ohio in towns of the same names. I could be wrong about that.

    Galion for sure was made in OH. Probably Marion as well. Back then that was where the steel was at....not China.
