Ken Papa's 1971 Dodge C-1000 Tractor

After WWII and up until the mid-1970's, the Dodge division of Chrysler Corporation was a full line manufacturer of cars and light, medium and heavy duty commerical trucks. A Dodge truck franchise could sell every model from a 100 series light duty pick up or van up to a 1000 series heavy duty commercial over the road high tonnage model tractor.

The C-Series or "LCF" (Low Cab Forward) tractors were built from Mid-1958 to 1975 and were probably the most popular medium and heavy duty model that Dodge built. The LCF series included models from 500 to 1000.

This truck is equipped with a Dodge 413-3 gasoline engine with 4 barrel carburetor matched to a 5 speed transmission with a hi/lo rear axel. Twin screw and diesel were also available for most years although 1971 was the last year for the LCF-1000 series. Dodge continued to build medium and heavy duty trucks until 1975 up to a 900 series.

In 1975, Dodge decided to exit the medium and heavy duty truck business in the U.S. and build those trucks only for export to Mexico, Central and South America.
