This classic 1947 Dodge WC pickup is a fantasy about honesty. A truck with a genuine '40s feel like this one begs for a lazy Sunday drive, and it reminds you of the serenity that a country road can provide.
A classic Dodge truck from the immediate post-WWII years is already a rare sight. The distinct cross-hair grille is a design feature that you see on brand new Mopar pickups today. In total, this is a two-tone reminder of an honest day's work. Its labor credentials feel so legitimate that you almost want to draw a father and son business graphic on the side. In fact, this has a real great overall attitude with the right amount of patina to make sure this truck looks like it earned its keep. Take a look at the details on everything from the real wood truck bed, to the proper Dodge hubcaps on the vintage wheels. It's that kind of old-school attention to detail that makes this one irresistible.
Inside is a cab built for long-lasting function. The vinyl bench seat is intact and very authentic. The three-spoke wheel was purely functional decades ago, but today it is beautifully artistic. It has that worn-in grippy feeling that instantly connects you with previous generations. The gearstick has a purposeful metallic feel. The widows have the side vents to give you the perfect old-school truck breezes. Plus, while the heater was an indulgence in '47, it still blows strong today to keep you warm when you're first in line at the car show on Saturday morning.
The straight-six motor has the correct casting to be original to the truck, and it has the kind of honest presentation you want in a pickup like this. So you'll love opening the butterfly hood and showing of its authentic style. The motor starts easy, and it gives off an industrial symphony of simplicity. It's a rhythmic hum that feels like being in charge of a mini locomotive as the tempo increases as you shift through the three-speed manual transmission. 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 solid running piece of history. So you're looking for the ideal Sunday driver, don't miss this distinct pickup. Call now!
