I located my 1952 Dodge B2B pickup about 2.5 years ago as a non-running, but almost all original example found on a farm. Last State Inspection sticker was from Pennsylvania 1978 so who knows when it last ran. Along came Covid and the inspiration to get this project functional. Two stuck valves, new complete fuel system, full brake system rebuild, full cooling and exhaust systems later, and it was roadworthy....except it had 2 mis-matched rims and 40 year old tires. I sourced two original rims, had all 4 wheels powder-coated, added 4 wide whitewalls...and I now have a fully functioning, if slow, 35,000 original mile pickup. I’ve chosen to keep the truck as original as possible, and cannot drive a few blocks without comments, thumbs/ups, and hundreds of questions from folks of all ages, some who have truck memories. I love how fast this truck makes my other cars feel!
