Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

Recommended Posts

I just purchased this time capsule 1947 Dodge Deluxe from the 90 year old son of the original owner and I thought I'd share. Original paint should polish up with great patina and the original interior is nearly immaculate. There is no wear on any part of this interior. No rust. All there, with rear fenders and some trim, etc started to be removed many years ago. We still can't find the bumpers (which they had re-chromed) but they might still be lurking. If they are not, anyone have a lead on them? This is a Canadian Plodge. 

Thankfully, the engine is free with clean oil and they were wise enough to remove the gas tank and rad and clean them out many years ago to avoid fouling.

Congratulations.   The bumpers are the same as Plymouth   both Canada and USA.

Thanks for the kind comments and thanks for helping to post the pictures to the thread.

I take possession on the weekend. It's nice too, because I bought it without paperwork and then the previous owner found all the manuals, invoices and registration the other day!

I will post pictures to this thread as I put it back together. I am going to perform a sympathetic restoration on it and preserve as much of the originality of this car as possible.
