  1. The vehicle is a titled 1936 1/2 ton Dodge Canopy Express "Huckster" Truck with a custom body built The Budd Manufacturing Company and it is virtually rust free.The tailgate was purchased new.
    Believed to be a local truck which was used in the delivery of fruits/vegetables throughout the Reading, PA area. The interior has all been reupholstered by Richard Sell from Pennsburg, PA. As you can see in the photos, the truck is very original and in excellent condition overall.

    Other items of note:
    * New safety glass has been installed
    * Bumpers which includes two, (original vehicle only had front bumper), along with windshield frame, tail light frames, emergency brake handle have all been re chromed by Reading Plating here in Reading. All other chrome items were felt unworthy of re plating because of their already more than satisfactory condition.
    * 4 newly mounted tires. Hubcaps although not show quality, are certainly of condition which would rate better than average.
    * The top/canopy woodwork has been refurbished and covered with a new vinyl top by the Leola Coach Works. Interior trim has been installed.
    * The original engine is a strong and clean running 6 cylinder L-Head. New battery. Actual mileage is not known at this time.
    * The Brakes have yet to be gone over, but work satisfactorly.
    * Nothing other than a good steam cleaning is needed for the undercarriage.
    * Motor and engine compartment will need to be detailed as desired or could be left as is.

    This is a fairly rare Vehicle that still needs some minor things. It is a fully functioning truck that can be enjoyed while decisions are made on just how to finish the restoration process. There is unlimited potential for the use of this truck in advertising, actually selling products from the back of the truck at various shows and events, and it could be a good tax write-off as well, so use your imagination. Thanks for the interest and please ask questions.

    Please ask questions. The car is located in Mohnton, PA. 19540. $16,500.00
