Craigslist

Came off an old farm homestead on 14rd almost into the desert. I assume that the family bought the truck at government auction or something. It had probably spent its entire post war life there.

Lame inline 6 flathead. I'm going to pull the cab and body parts, then recycle the chassis/engine/axle.

That is just an awesome ride! Makes you wonder what kind of stories it could tell... Did it help fight the Germans? What kind of supplies did it haul? Just a whole bunch of cool shit going on with that ride! =D> =D> =D> Wish it could tell us its history.

End of the road for this one. Its parts will help some other trucks.

Anybody want the chassis or 6 cyl engine?? I'm probably only going to get like $200 for scrap out of it.

Crazy to think that this truck may have been in Europe for WWII.

Lots of other good pictures and info on there.
