1949 Dodge B1-B Pickup Truck
 

Vehicle Identification Number 82102787  

Desirable five-window cab
218cid I-6 engine
4-speed manual transmission  

The first postwar vehicle that Dodge manufactured was the B-Series pickup, which featured distinctive pilothouse styling with optional rear quarter windows. Power came from the venerable flathead inline six-cylinder engine that produced 95 hp. While most competitors featured a buckboard ride, the B-Series benefitted from a rubber-mounted cab and a unique steering arrangement that reduced the turning radius to 37 degrees. With interest in these attractive workhorses growing, this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a well-preserved example at an affordable price.  

The Vehicle Offered
 

This solid half-ton B-1B features the original engine and an uprated 4-speed transmission from a later variant, as well as the iconic five-window pilothouse treatment. It is a strong runner that benefits from a new wiring harness, upgraded fuse box and new brakes and lines. The only changes from the original specification are an upgraded window washer system, custom road wheels and a wood steering wheel. With very solid metal and attractive bronze paint this is a fine example that will provide no end of entertainment to the new owner.

Estimate:  $15,000-18,000
