Lot #915 - The recipient of a frame-off restoration in 2012, this truck features genuine oak in the bed, top slats and in the cab. Painted in Washington Dark Blue with black fenders and rubber covered running boards, this Dodge received new side panels, a new tailgate and black short grain vinyl roof covering. Completing the nostalgic look of this truck is the tube tires rolling on black painted wood spoke wheels, removable mesh side screens, a split fold-out windshield and a genuine 1927 California license plate. Inside the cab, you a greeted with black vinyl bench seat and kick panels, the original unrestored steering wheel, lift-out wooden floorboard and original gauges, including oil pressure, ammeter and speedometer. Powering this old workhorse is a Dodge 212cid, 35hp 4-cylinder engine through a 3-speed manual transmission with a cone clutch. The radiator has an original cap with a built-in thermometer, while mechanical brakes provide stopping power. For added reliability, the original wiring was replaced during the restoration. 1927 was also the year the Pez Candy was invented. This truck is a tribute to the ever-so-popular Pez Candy. Pez Candy originated as a breath mint in Vienna Austria, by Eduard Hass III. The name Pez comes from the German word for Peppermint, "pfefferminz," taking the P from the beginning, the E from the middle, and the Z from the end of the word. Despite the widespread recognition and popularity of the Pez dispenser, the company considers itself to be primarily a candy company and over 3 billion candy bricks are consumed each year in the U.S. alone. Pez dispensers are part of popular culture in many nations, an example being Soul Candy in Japanese manga series Bleach. Because of the large number of dispenser designs over the years, they are collected by enthusiasts.
