What’s a Doodlebug?

A Doodlebug is an altered car or truck that was popular in the 1930’s to 1960’s and is currently popular for rural farm families to build and use like the modern day ATV.

Our Kingston Nissan Doodlebug is a 1952 Chevy Bullnose 1 ton truck with a flathead straight 6 cylinder motor.  The Doodlebug’s frame has been cut and shortened. The Doodlebug has the original engine, transmission and rear end (which is an 8 bolt rear end). The Doodlebug is in great shape and the brakes, clutch and engine are all working properly. This is not a road worthy vehicle, and is simply for recreation. It will be auctioned to the highest bidder in “as-is” condition with no warranty. Please consider a bid to benefit a great charity!
