27' Dodge "C" cab Delivery
Built By Bob McGee
Rocky Hill, CT



Sinister - A 1927 Dodge C-cab delivery. A few years ago I bought a couple of '27 Dodge truck grill shells off of e-Bay. I used one for the foundation of the C-cab and built everything else. It has a 2x3 frame with a 3" drop center and a 10" kick in the rear. It uses a '74 Dodge 360 and 727 auto. The seats are out of an '85 Dodge Daytona. All sheet metal work is done in 18 gauge steel. The body is built like a production car with floor, wall, and roof braces. Front suspension swap meet item from a Model-A with 4-link, 4" drop and Corvette discs.

The rear suspension I made from cutting a pair of '78 Dodge wagon springs in half and inverting them. I made up a set of 22" hairpins to keep everything straight and used a set of 1/2 ton van shocks all around.


Here is the latest video of the 27' Dodge "C" cab Delivery. We finally fired it up for the first time. I hope to have it out on the road next month for a shake down. This is the one that I built from scratch, starting with just the radiator shell and built everything else from the frame to the all steel 18 gauge body.
