For Sale: 1946 Dodge Pickup in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This classic 1946 Dodge Pickup has been nicely restored to get you in touch with a bygone era. So the investments here were not about a fancy stereo, and instead, your Sunday drive soundtrack is the smooth tick of classic iron making its way down the byways.

This truck turns back the clock from the moment it comes into view. The two-tone has a beautiful gloss where the black shows off the curves of the fenders and the red highlights the clean creases of the cab. There's no metallic or fancy pinstripes, and so it just looks like you got home from WWII and were one of the lucky few to get a new Dodge off the lot. While this has a true workman attitude, it does have a touch of indulgence with the bright grille trim and headlight eyelids. And the real wood in the truck bed is far too glossy to have spent a day out on the farm. But the overall impression is not about being fancy. It's just that kind of old-school attention to detail that makes this one irresistible.

The cab continues the honest, correct, and fresh feeling. The grooved steering wheel, clear gauges, and smooth bench seat are a true time capsule. The working heater looks nice under the dash, and you'll really appreciate it on an early morning drive. There are little detail upgrades like the floor mats and seat belts that make this a better cruiser. But it doesn't take away from the classic feeling of true Detroit iron. Even the fan on the steering column is old-school metal.

The engine bay looks like it received just as much attention as the rest of the truck. So the 230 cubic-inch inline six is nicely displayed with a clean and classic presentation. The proper investment means this hardy motor continues to fire up with a mix of robust power and smooth delivery. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over it all. The ride is another exercise in minimalism. Leaf springs and bias ply tires are far from modern, which makes them perfect in this time capsule of a pickup. The full experience of being behind the wheel feels like rolling history.

This is a well-restored pickup that has seen particularly good care. That's why the sale comes with service manuals, classic sales literature, spare components, a 6V battery tender, a bed blanket, and a car cover. This Dodge defines "beautiful nostalgia" and so if you're looking for today to feel like 1946, you need to be behind the wheel of this classic. Call today!!!
