Real good Question New-Gen:
My old Dodge finding parts to repair the drive train and brakes lead me to the Buick Roadmasters of that era all the parts heavier or for the brakes wheel cylinders larger and the brake shoes longer and wider. Yet, the wheels remained the customary five stud bolting. For neighbor Tray's Ford, he found what he needed from Chrysler corporation. Same characteristics, heavier `Uí joints, brake cylinders brake shoes and drums. Was interesting, it took some real sharp parts guys to know what we had. Seems our proximity to the border helped with the neighborly imports.
Never had a more reasonable explanation, only our vehicles werenít that unusual. Only a choice few of them in the States.
Far as I know, the old Dodge is still going! Should have kept it. The wife didnít mind the shake rattle and roll of that old dog. It just did what was expected of it. Then, again it might have been that cozier seating or missing the gear shift for her knee. Hmmmm!!!! Yeah!!
