Vintage Truck: 1947 Dodge – No Wonder It’s Running Hot, It’s Losing Coolant

Ron Adams shot lots of trucks as they passed by him on Route 22 in the early ’70s, but this was one of the oldest, although at the time, this ’57 Dodge was only maybe 25 years old.

And what’s with those thin “whitewall” tires? A little paint?
