What is the story behind the vehicle? I knew the salesman that sold it new. He worked with my dad At Densmoor Chevrolet and both left when the business was sold. At one point it belonged to a classmate of mine. It became my company vehicle and was used to transport records and files for the bank until I got a 1 ton van. I purchased the truck for $1,500.

What condition was it in when you got it? I kept it in great shape while using it for the company.

Do you have any other projects that you are currently working on or planning to start soon? Helping Mike Rice on his 1928.
