This is the highly sought after SHORT BED PICKUP (6-1/2 ft. bed); the short 108" wheelbase makes this a very nimble truck to drive (vs. the more common 3/4 ton trucks). Dodge VIN = Los Angeles, California Dodge factory.
Decals on the truck are removable. We added them to promote our brewery located in Northern Michigan and gain visibility for our business which it certainly has! This is a great way to promote your business while having fun with the Classic Vehicle hobby, taking it to local car shows and events. It is ALWAYS a CONVERSATION STARTER, people LOVE this truck! We are selling it simply to invest more $$ into our business or we wouldn't be selling it.
This is the really hard to find NO RUST Los Angeles, CA made, 100% stock, unmolested, 69-year-old Dodge B-Series, 5-Window pickup that is almost driven daily by the 3rd owner.
