I’m 65 years old and I’ve owned Mopars all my life. My first car was a ‘52 Plymouth, and after that I was hooked. I’ve owned countless HEMI® 318s, 340s, 440s and so on. I’ll make this short and sweet: In 1984, I saved a 1950 Dodge B 2 B half-ton pickup from the junkman and turned it into a show truck. I bought it because at the time I drove tractor trailers and where we parked was very dirty and dusty, and every day after work I had to wash my new Dodge pickup. So I said that I’d buy a junk truck and save my new truck from the elements. I drove the ‘50 for 14 years with the 218ci flathead engine until it didn’t run anymore. I couldn’t find the parts to fix it and I sure as heck wasn’t going to give it back to the junkman. So I made a street-rod pickup. All the running gear is Mopar.
Thanks you for sharing your story, Donald. It’s a great looking truck!
