Very interesting trucks models, F, G, H, K and K Special for the years 1933, 1934 and 1935 that we are looking for info. 1936 seemed to use the same basic cab. Pictures, books etc. The cabs and drivetrains are way different that the 2 ton and under trucks.

Thanks

Dave

I have a K72 3 ton truck! If you want any specific pictures that you want of my truck, let me know. I would be glad to provide you with whatever. Thanks again for all of your help.

Your truck is very interesting. My friend that owned this company  had passed away 5 years ago. I'm helping his wife with the business. They have about 30 trucks and a library of the trucks from 1925 to the 40s. Very little info on the bigger trucks like yours.  Here is the truck that we sold and restored that is in the Chrysler museum in MI. 1934 Dodge half ton. The mureum also have a 1934-35 4 ton Airflow that is red also.

There seems to be very little information available regarding the larger Dodge trucks. I graduated from Ferris State University in 2003. During my time there I had Tom Brownell for my English teacher. Unfortunately I did not realize it was the same man who wrote some of the Dodge truck books. Unfortunately I tried to contact him while looking for sources of information and found out that he had passed away. My grandfather had a sizeable collection of about 20 Dodge and Ford trucks that were unfortunately sold off to settle his estate. Fortunately my dad bought back the K72 from his sisters in order to maintain its place in the family.

We also have a K47. The 2 ton truck parts are the same from 3/4 ton to the 2 ton sheet metal wise. Cabs with the doors are the same for the most part from 1/2 ton to the 2 ton trucks. The 1933 Dodge DP car share most of the hard parts from the B pillar forward. The major change was after 2 tons. They are totally different trucks. Here is our 2 ton K47 tow truck in the 1st 3 pictures.. Love to hear the history and pictures of yours.

Thanks for sharing. The last 2  pictures are the 3 ton trucks.

I bought this truck from a friend in the late 90's. The story he told was that a family from Mass. loaded all their property on the truck and was headed to Califorina during the depression. Near Maxwell, NE the engine blow up and they sold all their stuff that they could not carry. They sold the truck to a local family and took the bus or train to Califorina. The truck was parked and as far as we know it was never fixed. My friend never got around to restoring it and sold it to me. I do plan to start restoring it after I get a car done.

This is the only picture that I have as it is setting in the back of my pole barn. Some day soon I hope to get started.

Hey Dave,

Dad was doing some digging through the family Dodge archives and came across a first edition "Dodge Brothers Two and Three Ton Truck (Series F) Instruction Book". The print date is Aug 1930. Original cost is 35¢. It is basically the most in-depth operator's manual that you could find. It has a wiring diagram and several cut away views as well as several repair procedures. If any information from this manual could be of help to any one, I would be happy to send pictures.

Oldiron:

Just found info for the k70 to K72 series truck. About 8 pages on specks. They also have info for the K72S, same as yours but it has a 2nd axle in back. The book that all this came from also shows 4 to 7 pass cabs, air ride and all the utility equipment that was available for these series trucks. Will be posting and I'll have the info for the shop manual that has your K70 series included later this week.

Post some pictures from the manual that you have.

Thanks for sharing your ride.

Dave
