Like Ford, Dodge’s first all-new post-WWII vehicle was a pick-up truck. Christened the B-Series, the new pickup design was very clean, with a more squared-off profile than its competition. Along with Studebaker, Dodge began the trend of integrating the front wings as a whole concise component of the truck in lieu of traditional separate design wings. Dodge carried this general design through to 1951, at which point the company enacted a light restyling centred primarily on a new double-bar grille theme, continuing with only modest trim tweaks through to 1953. The durability and economy of Chrysler’s flathead sixes – which were in all Dodge pickups of this era – made the B-Series a popular working truck.

Manufactured in 1952, this B-Series was imported into the United Kingdom from North Oregon, America in 2017. Registered to the vendor as the sole UK keeper at the beginning of 2018, the Dodge is fitted with the 3600cc ‘flat-six’ engine with the four-speed manual transmission. Presented with pleasingly patinated Red paintwork, the Dodge has benefitted from an interior refresh while in current ownership with the bench seat and door cards renewed in high-quality Red leather.

Subject to a mechanical restoration between 2017 and 2021, the mechanical work has included a renewed braking system; overhauled running gear and linkages; carburettor reconditioning; electronic ignition; new oil filtration system; 12-volt conversation and alternator; starter motor refresh; and a new fuel tank. Most recently subject to a comprehensive engine overhaul, a replacement bed, utilising Kerowin wood, finished the exterior appearance with waxing to both the bed and bodywork. ‘XVV 526’ is offered with a history file that includes an owner's manual, several previous invoices, shipping paperwork; and a current V5C, along with assorted spares and new registration plates.

Vendor Condition Ratings:

Bodywork: 'Very Good'
Engine: 'Excellent'
Electrical Equipment: 'Excellent'
Paintwork: 'Patinaed'
Transmission: 'Excellent'
Interior Trim: 'Excellent'
