1934 Dadge Truckr

My name is Gary Parker, and this page is about the life and Restoration of my 1934 1 1/2 ton Dodge Truck that my dad gave me in 1985.
It was the Winton Shell truck from new not shore when it stop being the Shell truck, I thank it was sometime in the lat 50s,In World War 2 it was used to refuel the US Air Force at the Winton Airport.  In the 70s and early 80s she was used to cart water for pigs out of town and was hooked up to a table saw. I tried  to restored it in the late 80’s but could not find the parts or the time, but I still got it going for the Outback Festival in Winton QLD for the following years (1985, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993) and was on display for the 1995 Outback Festival, after this she became unsafe to use. It went through the January 2000 flood in Winton where the water went over the roof of the truck, then in February 2000 we dried it out and started it to drive it to our new house in Winton, She sat there until we moved to Townsville in June 2007, so we moved the truck to the truck museum in Winton, in June 2009 we hade it trucked to Townsville to be restored, and started the restoration on the 26 June 2009 and finished on the 24 September 2010 (on the road some work still to be done), This time most of the parts where easy to find thanks to the internet and ebay, and some parts we have changed to modern parts like Alternator, Thermostat, condenser, and new set of VDO gages. The plans are to go back to Winton for the 2011 Outback Festival this will make it 16 years since it was in the Festival, Winton Outback Festival in 2011, 2013 and 2015.

Restoration

The tray has been completely rebuilt out of Quilla timber I brought from Bootle Timber in Townsville, the motor & gearbox are rebuilt standard, the motor has been rebuilt  by Ian Payne’s Automotive Engineering in Townsville & the parts come from Dodge Parts Australia The gearbox  needed new bearings & seals that came from Associated Bearing Supplies in Townsville, The diff has hade new bearings and I need to find a new crown and pinion for it (need help), the breaks parts where brought from Brakemart they also reshoed the breaks, the horn and tail lights came from Vintage Power Wagons The head lights came from Armadale Auto Parts and the fuel tank was made by JT aluminium products in Townsville. The electrical system is a 6v/12v system the 6v is for the starter & horn, and the 12v is for everything else (this is done with 2- 6v batteries) and a 12v Alternator (this is a diagram of the electrical system),and I have brought some parts of ebay.  We have had to make some parts ourself one of these parts is a new thermostat adaptor to hold the thermostat in place since the old hosing was very rusty and could not hold the thermostat, I made this out of 4mm aluminium, I also made a spear tyre holder , and a horn bracket. I have to make a front bumper yet. I have also replaced the wheel bolts & nuts they are the same as UD Nissan (you will need to run a 20mm drill through the holes in the bolt hosing).  The truck has cost me so far around $30,000.  I hope this information helps someone else. If you need some more information please email me at garydpar@bigpond.net.au and I will try to help.
Update August 2015, recondition the gear box which is a Warner T9-1P, that i was told that parts are not available but have found they are the same as right through to 1948, Part numbers are (cluster gear 598482 or 556869) (Main Drive Gear 598479 or 556777) (Low and 2nd Gear598480 or 556831) (3rd and 4th Gear 5998480 or 556831) (Reverse Idler Gear 598483 or 556836).

Truckin’ in the Tropics: Gary Parker


1934 Dodge Truck

ONE of the undoubted highlights of Townsville’s Heritage Day on May 15 2016 was a 1934 Dodge K32 truck.
It was on display at Townsville’s West End Park and is owned by Gary Parker who has lovingly restored it.
“It was my dad’s and used to deliver water to Winton and originally was a fuel truck. I got it in 1985,” Gary said.
The wonderful Dodge is registered with the Townsville Veteran Vintage and Historic Motor Club.
Gary started restoring it in mid 2009 and finished in September of 2010.
John McLean was one of the many who checked out the
Dodge and was highly impressed.
“This is a beautiful old truck and stands out and lots of people have been looking at it,” John said.
Mary Small was another who liked the Dodge.
“It must have taken a lot of time to restore and seeing it has been great for me,” she said.

Dodge’s touch of glamour

Dodge's touch of glamour | Big Rigs

A 1934 DODGE truck gained a touch of glamour when pin up girls group Scarlett Dolls gathered around it at the Townsville Show.

The Dodge was in a hall where the Townsville Veteran, Vintage and Historic Motor Club had numerous displays.

More than 60,000 people attended the show held from June 29-July 2.

The club is based in Townsville and was started in 1968 and has members in Ingham, Burdekin (Ayr and Home Hill) and Charters Towers and its objectives are to encourage the preservation, restoration and use of veteran, vintage and historic vehicles.

Scarlett Dolls is a popular promotional entertainment group of young woman who wore World War II military uniforms.

Gary Parker is the owner of the Dodge one and half ton truck which his dad gave to him in 1985 and since has been lovingly restored.

“It was the Shell truck at Winton from new and I think it was until sometime in the late ’50s,” Gary said.

“In WWII it was used to refuel the US Air Force at the Winton Airport. In the ’70s and ’80s she was used to cart water for pigs out of town and was hooked up to a table saw.

“I tried to restore it in the late ’80s but could not find the parts or the time, but I still got it going for the Outback Festival in Winton for the following years (1985, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993) and was on display for the 1995 Outback Festival, after this she became unsafe to use.”

Gary said the Dodge was in Winton during the January 2000 floods when water went over its roof.

“In February 2000 we dried it out and started it to drive it to our new house in Winton,” he said.

“She sat there until we moved to Townsville in June 2007, so we moved it to the Truck Museum in Winton. In June 2009 we had it trucked to Townsville to be restored, and started the restoration and finished on September 24, 2010.

“This time most of the parts where easy to find thanks to the internet and eBay, and some parts we have changed to modern parts like alternator, thermostat, condenser, and new set of VDO gauges.”

This Dodge has a 218 small block motor and a four speed gearbox it was imported into Australia by TJ Richards and Sons and they built the cab and tray.

The model is K32, engineering code and wheelbase is T-6-E-136.
