Photos of this former RAF Dodge

Below are some photos of my old Dodge restoration project, and, now that I have it out of storage and at home for the first time, I hope to be able to add to these images as things progress!

Just click any of the thumbnails below to view a full size photo. To see photos of other VKs that I've found, please visit this Dodge page.

I found this original B/W photo of the Dodge at a postwar racing meeting. I retouched in the Dodge 
so that I could get an idea of what it looked like when it was still dark green - this has subsequently faded to a patchy blue colour as the photos further down 
show!!!
Dodge truck This is a view of the Dodge back in 2001 prior to being moved from the first place I had it stored in, a barn in Poynton, Cheshire. It drove to this spot by the way!
Dodge truck Here's a rear 3/4 view of the Dodge, showing some of the period advertisements applied to the coachwork during the late 1940s, early 1950s.
Dodge truck A closeup of the n/s/f door showing the Mulliner applied aluminium strips
Dodge truck Ready for the off! Griffin Trust offered to do the move for me, and here it is loaded up on the back of a Bedford lorry.
Dodge truck A shot of the front end tinwork, showing clearly how the heavier rated Dodge trucks had a longer front end to accomodate the larger 6 cylinder engine, when compared to smaller civvy types.
Dodge truck A low down photo from the rear corner, showing the hinged spare wheel cover, and further period sponsors, including Dunlop and SU Carburettors.
Dodge truck Unloaded at Hooton Park, it too ex-RAF, the hangars behind this ex-crewbus dating back to 1917 and used in WW1 and WW2, right through to the 1950s and the early jets.
Dodge truck The Dodge tucked away in the corner of a hangar, yes there are axle stands and a bottle jack under there, supplementing the jack you can see in shot.
Dodge truck Here's a closeup of the front grille from my VK, based around what would be a '41 civilian style grille, but with apertures let in for the military brush guard that would have been fitted.
Dodge truck The strip down continues, here the o/s door has been removed.
