1952 Dodge "Job Rated" Pickup


A uniquely presented Dodge pickup truck packing more of a punch! This truck is in the realms of “hot rod” with many modifications to fire it straight into the 21st century with both technology and usability.

This vehicle was imported and registered just last year after spending the whole of its life in the state of Kentucky USA and can be regarded as a rare “survivor truck”

Presented with relatively “rat look” (but good) matte black paint work. This truck looks to be rough around the edges before sharpening your eyes to see what it is really like.

First of all – The drive train! This vehicle is powered by a Chevrolet 350″ small block V8 rebuilt shortly before being installed – The power is then channelled to the rear axle using a 3 speed auto gearbox to the standard rear axle. The engine has many aftermarket ancillaries such as a large capacity alloy radiator (with electric cooling fan also with manual override) full 12v electrics with an Alternator conversion, Edelbrock carburettor along with inlet, braided fuel and breather hoses with air quick fixings along with hydraulic power steering. These are to name but a few!

With the up-rated 12v Electric system throughout comes many added benefits. The dashboard instruments for instance have all been replaced for electric gauges which both work and are accurate! This along with a modern bluetooth ready stereo channelling music through speakers mounted in the roof of the cabin. The exterior lights have all been up-rated with the headlamps been changed for the very desirable “P700’s” which hold value on there own along with LED grille and rear lights to boot.

The front brakes have been upgraded to power assisted disc’s instead of the conventional drums which inspire confidence even with the added horsepower along with various suspension upgrades from new telescopic dampers, coil springs etc! Not to be forgotten – This vehicle also has 5 new powder coated steel wheels with radial tyres!

The truck bed and frame surround have been newly added after new cross braces were fitted to give the truck floor more strength. notably there are two compartments accessible through hatches the front been for under-bed storage with a lockable chest and the second to gain access to the battery box and fuel tank.

This truck is a cracking way to get started with your Americana dream – Rust free, lots of power, complete usability!
