I bought the one outside. Guess i should get a photo of the vin plate and run the numbers,as i was told its a ‘49.

i maybe should have started a discussion about the one in the garage,but was thinking i had enough on my plate.

Had it running,30 minutes. To me it sound no worse than any others i listened to on youtube. 
one frost plug leaks, oil filter isnt sealing and at the 30 minute mark the  water pump seal let go. 
new pump coming from Rockauto.

a week and i can replace pump. 
will see if i can locate a freeze plug kit, replace as necessary.

So, sorted out leaks, converted to 12 volt mopar alternator and now i can drive it into shop to work on it. 
what amazes me is every bolt i touch comes out Without a fight. Every single one. 
a friend’s uncle was admiring truck,says he has some parts for me. Come pick them up. 
turns out they are nos from a dealer that ran in my town in the 40’s and 50’s. 

cant wait to see what he has.

Hello everyone ,

I'd like to join this forum. I just bought a 1946 Dodge WD21 1-ton truck. The truck is a 3 speed, 2x4, mopar flathead six. The prior owner did a cab off restoration and kept it immaculate. I can't wait to tinker and cruise around in the summer and fall. The truck was found and bought from Chincoteague, VA and will be move home to Indianapolis, IN in October (2019).
