Great Find!!!!

What '32 pickup?

I do see a '33 pickup though.

Hey Chris, that truck is just awesome. Congrats on the find!

Gibbs brand penetrating oil/rust preventative. The stuff works great and is easily wiped off with thinner when it's time to paint. The truck will be torn apart and painted/plated/upholstered in the next year or so...

Dennis,

I am getting new glasses in a few weeks. Actually, it looked so much like yours that I did not pay attention (as usual).

Later, CW

Cars may be Cool but Trucks are WAY MORE INTERESTING!!!!

Chris.
I always loved my truck and don't know why I sold it but I built in the 90's I wouldn't be happy with it today as I had drifted away from the more traditional look. I'm so amazed to see all the beautiful trucks that have shown up on this thread. I wish I knew where it is today.

Some more early pictures of the now named 'Merlot'. I was working in the lab in 1957 when I saw this 1934 truck in original condition, at a local garage in Leamington Ontario. The white uniform was changed daily, and I have stopped off to see my girlfriend on Oak Street for lunch. Those were the days.

Now "IT'S NOT YOUR AGE IT 'S YOUR ATTITUDE"

Here's mine when I bought it last summer.



I pulled the fenders and boards off, I have better ones to put back on when time allows.


Model "B" Running, but needs some "Freshening"
