1947 Dodge OtherThis is Bruno, a rare orig black 1947 3 window D24 Dodge Deluxe Business coupe. It has ALL the options for the year. Clock, Radio, Bumper guards, Heater, and even key hole covers. It's nice, but it's a driver, not a show car. I've done everything to keep this car on the road and mostly original. This is a rare body style and I really enjoyed owning it over the years. People just love this car and it gets a lot of smiles and thumbs up. I hope the new owner will enjoy it and keep it on the road.
It's been a daily driver at times for me over the last 15 years that I've owned it. It drives very well and is very reliable. It can do 70mph to 75mph on the freeway. I've put 33,000 miles on it. It does not overheat, and it rides very comfortably. The paint is not very good but largely original. The dash is beautiful, the interior is really nice. It has two small dents on the driver front fender (zoom into the photos to see) and little bubbles under the trunk lid, but no rust through or serious rust anywhere. The fuel gauge and temp gauge are not working - but there are no other issues. Fires up every time runs, smooth and quiet.
I bought this car from who I believe was the first owner out of Tucson, Arizona (after a guy flipped it to me through Ebay). The orig Miles are verifiable, you can see the orig registration paperwork in the photos. I had my second boy and with two kids under the age of 3 I just don't drive it enough anymore.

This car has been looked after by the best! Bob from Elco Welding in Venice, CA. He has been keeping this car on the road for the last 15 years. If you have heard of him, you know he has a reputation for being "Battleship Bob" (making everything tough, built to work right and last) It is in excellent running condition.
