How often do you see one of these? This very handsome 1936 Dodge LC 1/2-ton pickup has been with the same family since the mid-50's and went through a frame-off restoration in 2006. It has its original motor along with its original cowl tag with matching frame stamp, making for a neat piece of history as well as a beautiful truck.

This rare example is straight and solid throughout. The frame is rust-free, having been stripped and painted during restoration. The body is all steel except for the running boards (the original steel running boards are included but are well worn). Note the original steel bed as well.

I really love the colors of this truck; the two-tone paint scheme is very sharp. The whitewall radial tires with matching spare are a nice touch too. There are many other neat vintage items such as the glass headlight and taillight lenses, ram hood ornament, and Dodge Brothers emblem. The crank-out windshield and cowl vent both work too.

The engine is the original T23 201 cubic-inch straight six, factory rated at 70 hp. This flathead has been completely rebuilt and runs great with a manual choke and pushbutton start. There is also the factory 3-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel drum brakes. The electrical system remains 6V positive ground and has a new reproduction wiring harness throughout.

The interior has the unique Dodge look with the center mounted speedometer. Note the original style fuel tank with the filler neck between the driver's legs. The bench seat has been replaced with a more modern piece, and a set of aftermarket gauges has been mounted under the dash. The truck has a clear title with matching VIN (engine number). It also includes a 1936 service manual along with original parts replaced during restoration.

There's a real beauty to trucks from this era. With all their curves, style, and character they are far cry from today's modern pickups. Not only does this Dodge look fantastic but all the hard work has been done, making it ready for another 80 years of service.
