Vehicle Description

On the outside, this 1947 Dodge Pickup is quite vintage. It only has a few pieces that hint to the custom upgrades. But beneath the surface lies and A/C interior, upgraded V8 power, an upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and an overdrive transmission. So look over all the details, because this is one amazing and stealthy custom build.

The exterior looks like a two-tone reminder of an honest day's work. The red and black two-tone practically defines this era in classic truck motoring, and the presentation looks like it has been hard at work for decades. You could upgrade this to a show-stopped finish, but really look at this before you do. The presentation seems quite purposeful to disguise the upgrades and show off the old-school feel. After all, you have terrific classic details, like distinct cross-hair grille is a design feature that you see on brand new Mopar pickups today. There's also the headlights in the fenders, steel running boards, real lumber on the bed floor, and matching wood for the vintage stake-side bed. They'll only start to wonder if there's something more here when they take note of the polished pieces, like the 16-inch alloys and large dual exhaust tips.

There's a stealthy style to the interior, too. A clean black bench seat, coordinating simple door panels, and a large three-spoke steering wheel are pure vintage pickup. But when you hop inside, you really start to see the upgrades. There's an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with adjustable Bazooka tube subwoofer. And they couldn't have even dreamed of cold-blowing air conditioning in 1947. Plus, the Lokar floor shifter and full Dolphin gauge package lets you know there's something nice in the engine bay, too.

The moment you open the butterfly hood, you can instantly spot the upgrade. After all, Dodge was years away from V8 power in 1947. Not only do you have a hardy 305 cubic-inch Chevy small block, but also it was upgraded further with an Edelbrock four-barbell carburetor and Edelbrock intake. More details like the upgraded distributor and electric fan keep this V8 a strong runner. And the worthwhile investments don't end there. There is an independent front suspension w/tubular A-arms, power steering, Pirellis tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes. It even has a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.

You get classic looks, custom upgrades, and modern power - and it's all available now for an obtainable price. So don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind. Call today!!!
