The American Dodge B-1B pickup was manufactured by Dodge (Chrysler) between 1948 and 1953, assembled in Los Angeles and Stockton, California and Warren, Michigan. The B-1B was a ½ ton truck standard with a 95hp flathead straight-six engine and 3-speed manual gearbox, classed as a full-size 2-door pick-up with an FR layout. The B Series also featured a unique ‘pilot house’ cab with optional rear quarter light windows, all of which increased visibility for the driver. The engine was moved forward and the front axle moved back to improve weight distribution. Increased all-round space in the cab and improved rubberised mounts meant it could seat three people in comfort. The cargo area sides were also raised to improve load capacity. More improvements followed in the early 1950s before the B-1B was superseded by the Dodge C Series.
