The all-new Dodge Brothers' 1933 truck line was divided into two distinctly separate series - the Standard and Heavy-Duty. Standard models were powered by four- and six-cylinder engine, Heavy-Duty models exclusively by sixes. These truck styling was borrowed from Dodge's passenger car line and were consequently dubbed the 'Glamour Series.'
This 1934 Dodge Brothers KC Series half-ton pickup has a car-like appearance, in sharp contrast to earlier Dodge truck models which had 'functional' commercial styling consisting of a primitive cab and pickup box.
The L-head six-cylinder engine displaces 201.3 cubic-inches and produces 70 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox and hydraulic drum brakes in both the front and rear.
High bid of $20,000 at 2014 Mecum. (did not sell) The Commercial Series KC received only two changes for the 1934 model year, since it was all-new for 1933. The tubular type axle was replaced by a drop-forged I-beam axle in the front, and the engine displacement size grew to 201.3 cubic-inches and was now rated at 75 horsepower. A Canopy and Screen body style also joined the list, with the canopy carrying a base price of $610.
This is a restored 1934 Dodge Pickup finished in silver and black with a black interior. It has Deluxe side-mounted spares, 17-inch artillery wheels, and was owned by the Catholic church in Pennsylvania from 1935 through 1999.
