Seller's notes: "Description: You are bidding on a fully restored and operational 1924 Graham Brothers/Dodge 1.5 Ton Flat Bed Truck. Although the truck was restored in the 1980s, it has been maintained in excellent condition over the ensuing past three decades. The vehicle starts, runs and drives and is fully operational. Although there are a few minor scratches and paint chips on the vehicle and it could benefit from some fine detailing, it remains of “museum” and “show” quality. Historically significant as the truck that enabled the Dodge Brothers to enter the truck business, this vehicle is an excellent example of a commercial-type truck manufactured and employed for business and farm use in the early 20th century."

Vehicle Details and History:

Mechanical:  This 1924 Graham Brothers/Dodge 1 and 1/2-Ton Flatbed Truck is powered by a Dodge-built L-head four-cylinder engine that displaces 212 cubic-inches and produces 35 horsepower.  Transmission is a 3-speed.    It has a factory 12 volt battery and electrical system – all lights on the vehicle work.   It is equipped with a single rear light and manual windshield wipers.  

Exterior:  Cab is yellow and fenders are a reddish brown color.   It has a front bumper painted black. no rear bumper. and yellow spoke wheels. The open cab's front window is in excellent condition—clear and without any cracks or other damage.   The bed of the truck is painted (green) wood and is in excellent shape.   The vehicle does not come equipped with a spare tire.

Interior:  The truck has a bench seat upholstered in a black vinyl which is in excellent shape.   The floor is covered with a gray vinyl material and is in equally good condition.   Headliner is made of wood and is also very good as are the door panels (covered in black vinyl) and the dash (painted yellow).   Cab top is black vinyl type material.

Vehicle History:  Its first owner used the truck on a farm just north of the village of Harpers. PA (north of Hershey).    It was purchased off the farm in the mid-1950s and maintained in its original state until purchased by a third owner who resold the truck at auction in the mid-1970s.   It subsequently went through several other owners before it was treated to a full restoration in the mid-1980s.   The truck was acquired by the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum in 1998 where it has been displayed and maintained as part of its collection since that time.   The truck has been on the show field several times and has been judged and awarded an AACA Senior and a Grand National First (affixed to the vehicle)).

Historical Background:  Ray. Joseph and Robert Graham were born into a farm family and got their start in the auto industry by converting Ford cars into one-ton express or stake trucks using a rear axle of their own design. They soon graduated to the manufacture of truck bodies for passenger car chassis and were offering their own line of trucks by 1920. Their success attracted the Dodge Brothers who were looking to enter the truck market. The Dodge Brothers Company entered into an agreement with the Graham Brothers Company in 1921 whereby the Grahams would manufacture1. 5 ton trucks with engines and drive trains supplied by Dodge. and with cabs and bodies manufactured in the Grahams' plants. These trucks were sold exclusively through Dodge Brothers dealers.

PA.    Call 1-717-566-1700 to schedule a time to view the vehicle.

This vehicle is offered as is. where is. with no warranty expressed or implied.   Since it has been part of a collection for many years and run infrequently. the buyer is advised that it may require some degree of re-commissioning before driving and placing it into service.  It has a valid Pennsylvania title which will be transferred to the new owner upon successful completion of the transaction.
