Wanted: 1936 Dodge pickup

Recommended Posts

Sherry Chrysler, Piqua Oh, 937 753 3037.

 

They have a late 30’s Dodge pickup on their sales floor.

I was there but didn’t go over to see it.

looked like it had been restored.

Yes, that is the truck & it is not a 1936.  Sorry, I should have checked first. Thanks for the correction.

The good news is that it is postwar, and that will make it easier to find one. Probably cheaper too.

How close does it need to be? For what it's worth, 1941, 1946, and 1947 all look almost exactly alike. 1939 and 1940 have the headlights in closer to the center and different grilles, but still pretty close to that look.

 

Plymouth trucks existed back in those days too, at least for part of those years. They look pretty similar too.

That one does't look too bad.  Worth looking around though.  

What's your budget?  What state are you in?  How far are you willing to buy from and have shipped in?

The 37 looks good I still looking for a 36 dodge pickup I'm in Cobleskill NY I like to keep my budget at between $5-$7000 in fair to good shape. I was looking at a 36 in real nice condition for $6500 its still being advertised but I backed out because I felt it was a scam. Be careful truck posted says Michigan seller is in Portland after I told him I would send out my own person to view truck and hire my own transport co. and  to hand him a certified ck he writes back not interested already sold truck. Would not speak on phone wanted  money to a company to hold in escrow for 7 days was being shipped by Good Transport If I didn't like truck he would take it back no charge and shipping was only $509  from Oregon to NY. But anyway I will keep looking

1936 and 1937 are very close in looks.  I had a 1937 1/2 ton Dodge pickup back when they were not as desirable as they are now.  Sold mine too soon and too cheap compared to today’s market for them.  Only a die hard fans can tell the difference which is primarily the grill and wheels. If you find a decent 1937 go for it as it won’t last long if it’s priced right.

Here is a 36.  A bit of a project, but I think it's a good value,  considering what has been done and the condition of what's there.  

 

I know this is above your budget, but trust me when I say extra money spent up front, is usually a very good investment.

There's a forum member near Pittsburgh, PA with a beautifully and authentically restored 1937 Dodge pickup. Licensed,titled and running. Nice truck, not cheap but nothing really nice ever is. If you are interested I'll PM you his name and number.

Yes It's one I found on Craigslist (not mine) .  I was going to pass it along a few days ago when I first saw it,  but for some reason couldn't find this thread,  then the thread popped up again,  so I went in and found to relay to here.  Good luck if you go to look at it.  Boston is still not a terrible drive from Cobleskill especially when looking for something very specific.
