1948 Dodge Firetruck For $1,500!

front right

This old fire truck is listed here on craigslist for $1,500. It’s in Rough and Ready, California. It hasn’t run in 25 years, but it’s mostly complete and original.


There’s no apparent rust or body damage. The condition of the mechanicals is completely unknown. The interior looks like it just needs some work on the seat. So what would you do with this thing? It is rough and ready!

    Why do these items get deleted by their author on craigslist so quickly?

      Sorry, it was several days until it was published. For a deal like this I should have marked it urgent.

      $1500 is so small an amount of money that people will buy it without even really considering if they’ll follow through on the restoration or customization. For $1500, just about any classic not rusted out is very attractive.

      That plate is a California city exempt plate – reserved for local government use. Very rare to find it still on the car, since they are required to be surrendered when the vehicle is sold to the public. It was issued in December, 1962, and is still in active use.
