More Pre-war Dodge commercial vehicles in preservation (Page 2)

Pre-war Dodge trucks, whether built in Canada (Fargo), the UK (at Kew) or original US build lorries from Detroit, are rare in the UK, with most survivors being of a military background.

The pre-war pages feature pre-WW2 Dodge lorry photos that have been sent in by visitors to this website. [Page 1] [Page 2]

1935 Dodge KC 1/2 ton light truck
Barry Halligan, Australia
1935 Dodge KC lorry
"These vehicles were exported to Australia, much as you see in the attached picture. I have not found another one in Australia yet, but will keep looking. Being at the end of the great depression, I do not expect to find many. This body (open cab) was sold in the US as their special body unit. In Australia these vehicles normally had a canvas hood and a timber well body (ute) added in Australia. This vehicle came with the rear window for use in the canvas. "

1933/1934 Dodge K Model 30cwt
Hugh Johnson, Australia
1934 Fargo being restored
My name is Hugh Johnson, I came across your web site whilst browsing for Fargo truck information. I have a 1933/34 K model 30 cwt truck. It was built in the USA and I believe it is one of the first Fargo's built by Chrysler after he bought out Dodge Brothers.

I have only come across 3 others of this model in Australia, one of which I bought as a parts vehicle. There is a picture of a very similar truck in The Dodge Pickups book on page 15. I was given the vehicle as the owner was selling the land it was being stored on. It was pretty much a basket case with the only thing projecting above the frame being the engine and steering column! All the sheet metal was lying around or stacked on the chassis. I am about 50 percent of the way through restoring the vehicle. If anyone can help with parts, please get in touch with me here: Hugh Johnson, 85 Edinburgh Rd, Marrickville, NSW, Australia 2204. Thanks!

1936 LE32 Dodge
Mark Balfour, Australia
"Came across your site whilst looking around for Dodge Truck parts and History. Although I don't live in the UK I am interested in what your doing and my be able to help out with information and possibly receive information also. I am currently restoring a 1936 Dodge LE32 truck. I picked it up from a shed 2 years ago, Dodge trucks were imported to Australia in 1936 the cabin and tray where built in Adelaide. The truck was around 90% complete when I found it which helps when restoring as you would know. I am looking for some parts and would like to be included in your registrar if possible."
