    As far as I know… this is the oldest truck still around…. 😎  Thats about as cool as it gets right there!!! Possibly my only chance to body work some smooth gates!!!!!  😎

    Were going to make sure shit fit’s right, gaps are as good as possible and repaint it and assemble it…  With a later tranny and 1914 baby tractor motor.. this is going to be a shop truck for the Sailing Bridges garage…  Cole said he plans to use it… Like we use our busses.. So.. Were going to shoot for correct, and respectful, but not over the top…. 😎  Which will be a tough line to draw with a barndoor…. 😎

    This shouldn’t take too long…. 😎

    Stored all the parts away this morning and handled a couple gap/fitment issues on the pass lower door and treasure chest door.0B2958E7-544E-4D74-926B-C31FD3C5732DD07188EB-B73A-448D-B8A9-2276EDD93B8C7E80AB77-9856-469F-9EB5-B51429EA7FE3D88692EA-74D3-43FA-BCAF-F70D8B427FA2C863939B-EABC-4BCA-B32D-45A4A3EB4BA0

    Also hung the engine lid and apron. Everything looks goodE8AA8854-29BE-47A7-A0F5-9C6F7CA8C812

    Ohhhhh man! Gonna be sick!!!!

     

    JJ. About the drain holes on the rockers and under the b pillar. Let me know if it doesn’t make sense and I can get clarification. From Mark:

    ”Drivers side, there is one pressed drain hole under the b-pillar….that’s it. Nothing else down the whole rocker.

    Passenger side, pressed drain hole under the B-pillar, and three more down the rocker, but they stop short of the reserve hole.

    Easy answer for John is , leave dimple drain under driver’s side b pillar- and remove everyone back from there”

    That should be the OG one! Cool to at least have on the shelf.

     

    I think thats it. I crawled around it last time I was there and I think that’s all👍🏼👍🏼 I’m excited to see this thing back from apart. It’s been a long time coming for this old thing

    What’s the backstory on this one?

    came out of Canada I believe. Peter Valentine had it first I think. Then Bob out in New York had it before we got it. I have some photos of it before it was stripped I’ll dig out.

    The truck was dug out of hibernation in Canada in the early 90s by John Kellestine. Peter Valentin owned ab-51, ..dingus
