This 1948 Dodge B-1 Pickup has been in the same family since new.
If that wasn't enticing enough, the ultra-low odometer is believed
to reflect the truck's actual mileage. They even gave the pickup a
major refresh only about a dozen years ago. So if you're looking
for a true classic that has been treated like a heirloom, this is
an exceptionally rare opportunity.
These trucks were known as Pilot House cabs because of how the tall
five-window setup gave you a commanding view all around the truck.
And what made them great for work back in the 1940s adds plenty of
distinction today. We can tell the one family cherished this
pickup, and there was even a nice investment in 2007 to refresh
some of the pieces. The result is a truck that looks good but is
not overdone to erase its history. The glossy blue of the cab is
intertwined with the black as it starts on the bumper, flows along
the side rails, and consumes the bed. And as you look over the
whole package you'll see all the right pieces of vintage charm,
like the glossy lumber in the bed and the bold red wheels with
whitewalls (including a side-mounted spare.) And this even has the
correct ram hood ornament boldly leading the way.
The blue on the outside of the cab also continues inside.
Everything from the texture of the bench seat to the rubber floor
mat has a terrific vintage feel. So from the moment you grab the
large three-spoke steering wheel and look over the metal dash, this
feels like true old-school motoring. The AM radio was a rare
feature from the time, so it's great to still have it as a display
piece. And the heater was one of those welcomed options that warmed
you up on the way home from working in the fields...and you'll get
that kind of nostalgia every time you turn it on.
With a single-family owned truck, it's easy to understand how they
know this retains its original engine. So you'll love lifting the
cool butterfly hood to showcase the 218 cubic-inch inline-six. And
this really is ready to show off with such a fresh presentation,
right down to bright block and single carb. Plus, this motor is the
robust heart that helped these Dodges earn their Job-Rated status.
Careful ownership over the years means it fires up like a reliable
truck should. It has an old style and smooth rhythmic exhaust note
that you'll probably love better than any radio station. And you're
in complete control of this tempo thanks to Dodges easy shifting
Complete with maintenance records and a service manual, this is a
terrific classic pickup with a true story to tell. Are you ready to
