1940 Dodge 3 ton truck WW2
Some old footage from 2000 showing the Dodge's six cylinder engine fired
up. It was leaking a little oil, the tyres were all soft, and the fuel and
ignition were jury-rigged together to make it all work. The footage isn't
the best as it was lifted from a 10-year old VHS tape, transferred to DVD,
converted, then edited into an mpeg file.
This 3 ton truck has been off the road since the mid 1950s. I'm always
looking for spare parts for the "big" engine - 331 cu in - so if you can
help, please get in touch. I also need a spare wheel - 10 stud, 20"
diameter, by Budd, split rim.
The ongoing restoration of this lorry can be followed on
Footage of the truck's engine running in 2011, for the first time since a
comprehensive overhaul, can now be seen on this later video:
