Restoration Tale: 1943 Dodge Carryall


Before buying my Bumblebee (see other story), I found a 1943 Dodge Carryall. In 2000, the Carryall had been taken to the Power Wagon Rally in Fairfield, Iowa, to be offered for sale – but it didn’t sell. It was returned to Massachusetts were it sat looking for a new owner. I still don’t know how the Carryall made the trip to Iowa and back; it was so structurally weak that it could hardly carry its own weight. I decided I would purchase it and do a restoration.
