For Sale: 1953 Dodge Pickup in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1953 Dodge B-Series Pickup. The Dodge brand has been in the automotive industry for well over 100 years. Brothers Horace and John started a machine shop outside Detroit at the beginning of the 20th century. They were soon supplying parts for the Ford Motor Company. In 1914 the pair formed Dodge Brothers and were building their own line of automobiles. After the untimely death of both brothers, the company was sold of to Dillion, Read & Company and ultimately falling into the hands of the brilliant Walter P. Chrysler when he started his own auto company Chrysler Corporation in the 1920s. The Dodge truck line became notorious for its strong and capable offering with the Power Wagon truck during World War II. After WWII, the Dodge truck line debuted the new B-Series line in 1948. The "Job Rated" trucks proved to be very worthy vehicles for the growing truck market during the midcentury and were seen on farms and city streets all over the country. The B-series trucks came in several different variants. The B1-B were �-ton trucks standard with a 95 hp (71 kW) flathead-Inline-six engine while the B1-C were �-ton trucks with a standard 108 hp (81 kW) flathead-Inline 6 engines. The B-series trucks featured a high-visibility "pilot-house" cab with optional rear quarter windows. The engine was shifted forward, and the front axle moved back on the frame for better weight distribution as well as a shorter wheelbase, moving from 116 in (2,900 mm) to 108 in (2,700 mm) on �-ton models. The cargo bed sides were made higher to increase capacity by 40%. The redesigned cab could seat three people, with 2.5 in (64 mm) more height, 6 in (152 mm) more width and 3 in (76 mm) additional in length. The cab was mounted on rubber mounts for an improved ride. Another innovation for the time was the use of cross-steering arrangement, giving the trucks a 37� turning radius. The cargo box space was increased over previous models and overload springs made optional on all variants to increase hauling capacity. Our featured 1953 Dodge represents the "pilot-house" era. Known for the wide-open cab that offered plenty of visibility from the driver's seat and a more spacious area for its passengers. This truck is finished in Red with Black and Red vinyl seats. The truck also features color matched Red steel wheels with "DODGE" dog dish style hub caps. Powering the handsome truck is an Inline Six-cylinder flathead engine matched to a 3-speed manual column mounted transmission. Options on this 1953 Dodge Pickup include: Seat Belts, Bias-Ply Tires, Vinyl Interior, and Hub Caps.
