1935 Dodge Pickup
Dodge sailed into 1935 full of confidence, its light-duty trucks
again little revised, but now carrying steel-roofed cabs with
front-hinged doors. By now they didn't look so much like the
passenger cars, which had received two styling facelifts, but the
trucks didn't need any. Business was so good that production
expanded into Los Angeles and Canadian plants.
For consignment, a fully custom street rodded pickup truck courtesy
the white hat boys from 1935. Bought from a 90 car/truck collection
in upstate NY, it has plenty of goodies and modifications as you
can see just by the first shot! Dig deeper and you too will be
For this half ton pickup a full frame off restoration leaves us
with a stunner. Dipped in purple, shaved suicide doors, a black
vertical louvered grille and black radiator surround, chromed bezel
headlights in purple bullet styled casings, and the open hood to
show off the scoop were truckin' now! All excellent surfaces
showing no rust and well minded gaps. A tubbed and fully restored
bed, lined with teak and mahogany with chromed dividers is also
awesome. No tailgate and a custom bumper-less rear roll pan with
small angled billet bezel style taillights and through the panel
exhaust pipes. A nice ass with the curvaceous fenders on either
side. The running boards have been ribbed with teak as well which
adds an interesting look. Speaking of which we cannot forget the
airbrushed art which appears as zig zagging neon tubes in white and
light blue working their way from their thin beginnings in front
and getting wider as they do a crossover in the middle and running
to the top of the bedsides on the rear. 14-inch aluminum slots are
in front wrapped by 195/75R14's and in back 15 inch aluminum slots
wrapped by very wide 31x18.50R15 Mickey T's. Light 'em up!
Opening the suicide doors we see padded gray vinyl for the main
panels. Actual cut wood is making a descending lightning bolt
design and is within this gray vinyl padding. A wood door pull, and
billet window crank are also mounted to these doors. Stepping over
the teak ribbed running boards, we slip inside into aluminum tubbed
buckets with a fabricated center cup holder console, also in
aluminum. Purple padded cushions line these aluminum bomber style
buckets. Upfront a purple dash with solid wood for the dash front,
has an undulating oval cutout in which purple canvas burlap-esque
tweed shows through and houses the vintage looking VDO white faced
gauges. A rally wheel with a tilt column fronts the custom dash,
and in the field of blue carpeting a Hurst Super Shifter rises for
the driver's hand.
All aboard and under the hood of this freight train is now a 350ci
crate engine topped with dual 4-barrel Edelbrock carbs, and if this
is not enough let's throw in a Dyers 6-71 Supercharger. On back,
Muncie M21 4-speed manual tranny, with Ford 9-inch rear axle. Light
those candles and we're not going to sing Happy Birthday, we're
going to make some smoke!
Clean and rust free, obviously the beneficiary of the frame off
restoration. The boxed frame is also gusseted. For the ride and
handling now showing is a Mustang 2 mixed with some Fiero front
suspension, and adjustable front shocks are here too. Also
adjustable upper control arms are mounted on. On back are a 4 link
with coil over setup with a smaller axle to accommodate the wide
rubbers in their tubs. Disc braking is up front and drums for the
rear. No rust under here with a purple frame and blue metallic
underbody panels. Also its a drip free environment with plenty of
polished metal mechanicals, and tubes.
Excellent in a word, starts right up, and runs smoothly. A pleasure
to drive. Even nicer to look at. There definitely is no foolin'
around on this test drive. This is a seriously powerful truck.
A better example will have to be really searched for, as this one
is a true winning pickup rod. Excellent build, all correct, all
steel, and looking right out of the 1935 Dodge Brothers Showroom in
front and totally custom in back and for the interior in a word
snappy. Turn the key and collect the trophies.
