I just pick up a 58 Fargo 1 ton and need to find a source for parts, info and general knowledge. First, it has a flathead 6 and I can’t find what electronic ignition to use on it. Should I leave the points in it or go electronic. It sounds like less maintenance. It has a 300 emblem on the side of the hood but no A or B,C,D or anything before the 300. It is a step side with a 9 foot bed. Is there a dodge model that coresponds with it?

Ok, thanks. It’s basically a c body truck. Now I have more to go with. My wife said the tag on the door jamb is stamped “1950” but I’ve looked at enough photos to identify it as a 58. Is it likely that the tag could’ve been mis-stamped?

Not much help on the identification. When looking a pictures you will need to know what country the pictures are from and the origin of the truck. Apples don't always look like apples.

Likely have your phone camera set to too high a resolution. That quickly increases the file size so either reprogram the phone cam or resize the photos you want to upload.
