Dodge B-Series trucks were produced from 1948 to 1953, an era when payload and reliability in a work truck was more important than the option list. A rugged, well-built ¾-ton Dodge truck are far harder to find than a comparable Ford or Chevy of the era. When restored as nicely and accurately as this one, they are an excellent value and standing strong in the market today. By 1950, the B-2 had added an option for the four-speed floor-shifted manual transmission, which this truck was ordered with. In fact, the original Bill of Sale is included with your purchase. Dodge also improved the turning radius with a new cross-steering arrangement, and the cargo box was also enlarged to make this B-2 one of the hardest working trucks you could buy in 1950.
This fine example looks great with a two-tone paint scheme featuring a green body color accented by a black bed and tailgate. The fit and finish overall are very good, with easy closing doors and tight panel gaps. Painted grilles and bumpers were standard on these work trucks, and this truck has a nice straight stance and looks clean and correct throughout. The tailgate works properly, and the truck comes with wooden side rails that match the bed floor perfectly. The drivetrain is very clean and accurate, with a tidy flathead six-cylinder engine inside a fully restored engine bay, backed up by the optional four-speed manual transmission. The truck runs and drives as you would hope, starts with ease and runs with authority. Inside, a nicely restored interior, clean painted dash, and clear instruments greet the driver for a true and accurate ‘50s truck experience. Join the legions of Dodge truck fans and enjoy the fine condition of this rare and desirable 3/4-ton pickup.
