Stk. 2267 1953 Dodge Pickup
Restored pick-ups are good values in the classic market. Prices are reasonable and continue to rise. This 1953 Dodge B-series pickup is a rare find. The B-series trucks were produced from 1948-1953. They featured a high-visibility 'pilot-house' cab that was rubber-mounted and could easily seat three people with good headroom. Series B pickups came standard with a flathead straight-six engine that produced 95bhp. The engine was shifted forward and the front axle moved back on the frame for better weight distribution and a shorter wheelbase. Our 'Ram' was fully restored in 2013. The solid body and bed were refinished in a deep shade of Burgundy that is in overall very good condition. The bed has an oak floor and finished oak side boards. Stock wheels with 'dog dish' Dodge hubcaps provide the final touch to the exterior. Inside, the cab has been fully restored. The seat was reupholstered in brown vinyl, the factory steering wheel is stately and the classic dash holds a complete set of working gauges. Backing up the quiet flathead, a three speed manual gearbox is managed by a 'three-on-the-tree' column shifter - so sweet. This is a very nice restored truck that is really fun to drive. These early Dodge pick-ups are very scarce - lots of Chevy's and Fords, seldom an early 'Ram'. It won't be here long.
