This summer I received a call from a friend in Montana. He was going to haul me a truck that I had bought at an auction. He asked if I wanted to make a deal on an additional truck and he’d bring them both on the same load. After seeing a couple pictures I quickly said, “Yes”. Later that afternoon, my newest treasure arrived.
My friend had brought me a surprisingly nice, 1950 Dodge Pickup. When it came in, the bed was full of junk and the cab had been home to both cats and mice for years. But the truck was solid and for the most part, in very good condition.
After a morning of cleaning the real truck began to shine. We saw the cab-floor was good and that the doors opened and shut well. The tires still held air. The bed looks to be in good shape, minus the wood floor. Even the tailgate is nice and straight considering this was on a farm for almost 70 years.
It’s rare to find pickups that lived their whole life on a farm in this nice of condition.
This was a great find and will make a great truck for someone to put back on the road.
We’ve got it all cleaned up and ready to sell!
UPDATE: We just sold this Great Truck! It’s going to a new home in Massachusetts. I can’t wait to see pictures of it running again.
