1956 Dodge Town Panel DeLuxe
This is a survivor 1956 Dodge Town Panel. Mileage showing currently is 52,000, No proof, but believe to be original. I drive this truck 50-60 miles per week.
Original 230 six, 3 speed on the column, being a deluxe it has 2 speed electric wipers and a very good 3 speed heater.
I have had this truck 3 years, about 8000 miles ago. Since I bought it the following have been done:
New Clutch and change of rear end from 4.78 to 3.90
New Radial Tires
Rebuilt generator, new voltage regulator, water pump and battery.
New paint job in the original color, Ecuador Blue, with clear coat.
Interior is original, paint, seats, door panels and headliner. I insulated and paneled the back, warmer in cold weather, cooler in warm weather, quieter all the time.
EVERYTHING WORKS except fuel gauge, when grounded, it goes to full, sometimes it tries to move on it's own, believe to be a bad ground, just haven't had a chance to address it, I just keep track of the mileage when I get fuel.
The door locks even work
This truck has NO rust, Floors are excellent including the wood floor. The is a bed mat trimmed to cover the wooden floor. I added a tach, stereo, voltage gauge and 12 volt outlet, and a rear view camera in the glove box, handy for backing up.
I would drive this truck anywhere, and I do, will cruise at 65, 3000 rpm, plenty of pedal left, but this is a torquey long stoke engine so I don't take it over 3000. YES, you can drive it home, just keep the rpms down.
Burns no oil visibly, does spot, so I add a quart and zinc additive once or twice a year between annual oil changes.
I've been asked if the truck is for sale, not really, but will offer it for $19,999 cash, will consider serious offers.. It will be tough to find another daily driver.
