Abandoned Car of the Week

Dodge introduced a completely redesigned line of trucks for 1939. The '39 truck, which had a streamlined art-deco-style front end, was called the T Series, changed to V Series in 1940 and then to W Series for 1941. The engine of choice was a straight six Chrysler flathead in a variety of sizes mated to a three- or four speed manual transmission. This large delivery van was found parked behind a dilapidated barn in eastern North Carolina. (Photos by Jim Meachen)
