Recommended Posts

Customer just bought this 1933 Dodge. This is 95% or more original. Set for 50 plus years. Changed oil and tune and it fired right up and runs great.Overhauled the brakes and he is driving it.  It also is equipped with 17" wheels and a gas heater.

Also pictured is his 1929 Chev grain truck.

Dave--OK, I never thought I would part with it once I found it, but ask your customer if he would be willing to trade for my 34 Dodge DRXX coupe I bought recently, couple of photos attached that were on my prior post. As you know, DRXX is quite rare, only a couple of thousand of them made. Understand if he/she is not interested, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Hope your move is going well.

Is the panel even rarer than your car? I will ask. He loves them trucks. He was at a car show-swap meet and this guy ask if he would be interested in a panel? This guy never owned a Dodge before. He is buying parts from us to fix up. I think I found the other upright for the windshield.

Understood, let me know if he is interested or wants some other photos.  Shoot me a photo of the post and we can confirm it is correct.  Need it! Thanks.

Just for historical reasons I believe this is not a panel van but a Sedan Delivery. It has had the area where the rear door and side window would have been covered in and it does not have the normal 2 doors of a van but the one door of a sedan delivery. It is infact a '33 as it has a '33 car instruments but what's a 'gas heater'?

I believe it's a gas heater like the VW and Corvairs had. We have a few in inventory and somebody else said they are gas operated. My 63 Corvair had one and it worked great.

To be clear, a gas heater runs on gasoline supplied by a line tapped into the vehicles fuel system. They heat well but can be dangerous if a leak develops inside the car.

We have about 10 gas heaters like the one pictured. I have found no info in our library about these heaters.

Couple of items:  First, correct that those heaters are gasoline fueled, get hot real fast, but can be dangerous.  Can't imagine why anyone (but a Model A Ford driver) would want a gasoline line running just above one's feet. (I think that is why it is called a 'firewall'...).  The one Dave shows is a South Wind manufactured unit.  They are still manufactured and can still be purchased new.  On the 'panel' v. 'sedan delivery', technically correct, sedan delivery is the single rear door model.  I believe Dodge never used that term, however, choosing to call it a 'commercial sedan'.  Photo attached of original 1933 ad.

with the suicide doors, it's definitely the class of the era for Panel or Delivery...More style than Ford & Chevy put together !
