800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This classic 1936 Dodge LC pickup is a fantasy about honesty. A truck with a genuine 1930s feel like this one begs for a lazy Sunday drive, and it reminds you of the serenity that a country road can provide.
While this has a true workman attitude, it does have a touch of indulgence with the intricate grille, bright wheel covers, and chrome bumpers borrowed from Dodge's sedan line. But the rest of the body is much more industrial. It's a two-tone reminder of an honest day's work. Its labor credentials feel so legitimate, you may want to put your business name on the side (or make one up.) In fact, this has a great overall attitude with the right amount of aged-in style to make sure this truck looks like it earned its keep. And take a look at the details on everything from the real wood railings around the truck bed to the spare tire on the front fender. It's that kind of old-school attention to detail that makes this one irresistible.
The first thing you will notice about the interior is the seat. The two-tone is stylish with a maroon and gray that unite the color of the interior. And while the velour offers a level of comfort you couldn't have in the 1930s, it's a welcomed addition that doesn't add too showy. The rest of the interior is there to make sure you have the proper vintage atmosphere. The three-spoke steering wheel was purely functional decades ago, but today it has that grippy feeling that instantly connects you with previous generations. The three-speed manual shifter has a purposeful but smooth mechanical feel. The windshield even still tilts forward to give you the perfect old-school truck breezes.
The straight-six motor decodes to the year-correct unit, and so it's believed to be a 218ci motor that's original to this truck. It runs with that ideal simple old-school chug that makes these fun byways wanderers. 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.
If you're looking to have an authentic experience behind the wheel, this pickup knows how to make every day feel like Sunday. Call now!
