In 1939, Dodge presented a completely new line of pickups and trucks with streamlined, artdeco styled cabs that continued until and after the United States joined World War II. Due the federal government purchasing most of the 1942 run of WD15s for military use, few were made for civilian consumption.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1941 Dodge WD15 ton pickup truck made in Chryslers Detroit, Michigan factory. Finished in Reconnaissance Red over black, the paint and trim are in overall very good condition. The bodywork is straight, the cargo bay, with its wooden floor, is in very good shape and its black bumpers are shiny. Some unique features include a crankout windshield for added ventilation, cowl lights and a pushout hood vent. This truck rides on a 120inch wheelbase.
With these JobRated trucks, Dodge tried to offer customers a truck that fit the job for which they were bought and that included offering an exceptionally large number of variants six different payload ratings, a wide range of bodies, more than 20 different wheelbaselengths were made and fitted with various versions of Chryslersourced inline sixcylinder sidevalve engines from the halfton TC pickup on a 116inch wheelbase to threeton tractor cabs. Nevertheless, mechanically, the trucks were all very similar, with solid axles front and rear and leaf springs at all four corners. As stated earlier, with World War II taking up most of production capacity from 1942 to 1945, the 1939 styling continued largely unchanged through 1947, as engineering and production became the main focus.
This Dodge is shod with Allstate Super Highway King tires, size 6.0016 at all four wheels. Each tire is mounted on red wheels with factory center caps. The tires are in very good condition while the wheels are in excellent order.
Under that tall hood is a 218 CID Flathead inline sixcylinder engine (T114). It has its original sixvolt electrical system but has been upgraded with an electric fuel pump for easy starting. Backing the motor is a threespeed manual transmission. The truck has a dropforged Ibeam front axle and a semifloating rear axle with hypoid gears.
Inside, the trucks red and black interior is in good, overall condition. The tank crinkle vinyl bench seat looks great, as does the black floor matting. The headliner and threespoke steering wheel are in good, original condition, as are the inner door liners. The red, metal instrument panel is in very good order, with a full array of gauges, however, the odometer is obscured and the speedometer, wipers, horn, fuel and temperature gauge are inoperable.
Dodges striking new design for 1939 featured an allsteel cab with a twopiece windshield that could be opened for increased airflow. The unique frontend design: a barrelshaped grille, crowned front fenders, and freestanding headlamps mounted in bulletshaped pods, was only really changed in 1940, when Dodge trucks began using sealedbeam headlamps and were equipped with marker lights mounted on the headlamp housing. For the most part, after 1940, yeartoyear appearance changes were very minimal. The JobRated trucks had stronger frames than previous Dodge trucks, using steel with a higher tensile strength, the rails extended further forward past the engine than before, and the trucks beefy channeltype bumpers helped to tie the frame rails together.
