1936 Dodge

Recommended Posts

Shot a few more pictures then I will leave you alone for a while.

The wiring harness looks pretty good a few rub through spots nothing that can't be repaired.

Just at a glance only two unoriginal wires.

The temp gage is inop , so if anyone knows of a reliable gage repair guy.

It has a vacuum whistle the grand kids love that.

I like the steampunk brackets but in the end they may have to go.

I probably won't restore it , just replace all the rubber stuff it's perished.

I fabricated a front hood hinge it was missing .

there wasn't any hinge pins either so I used 3/16 round stock.

I don't know what these are supposed to look like so I went for fit and function.

So there you have it, my new truck in it's new home.  

I know I'm new but I enjoy the hobby and this my first forum experience.

Massive tall industrial looking gas cap .

I don't smell gas in the cab though .

Those two black knobs on the dash look like Dodge A100 items. That is such a cool truck!

Here is a picture of gas filler neck.

You may be right about knobs, put I'll give this, they work.

The knobs do look like the 1960s Dodge trucks.

I like the pipe rack on the side.

Thanks for the info!  I had a 1937 1/2 Dodge pickup model MC.  My fuel fill was under the driver seat.  I don't think that's how it came from the factory but I was never sure.  Seeing your truck had no visible outside gas cap prompted my question.  Thanks for posting the photo too!

I would guess that the dash knobs looked similar for a lot of years. But what do I know?

I too like the pipe racks. Not just cobbed on there, rather fabricated with some style.

GREAT TRUCK!

 

From over here, that gas cap looks like it's from a Farmall, maybe A, B, C, Super C, one of those. Or H or M.

Great truck, love the key fob.

Around here those were called "church keys".

Wonder why they put the pipe brackets on the driver's Side?  Seems like the passenger side would have been better for loading and unloading,  as well as letting the driver out. 

Unless it was meant for more off road use where the driver could keep a hand on what he was carrying.

Still a cool truck and the brackets are kind of neat.

The door lock was on the passenger side, at least on my '37.  I believe you were expected to exit on the passenger side so the drivers side would make sense for the rack mounting.

I agree with TerryB. Curb side on narrow, highly crowned roads safer.

Though loading or unloading in that same street would be safer than from the curb?

You have to be quick about it!
