About “The Truck”

This is my 1947 Ford Tonner. It was used by a local moving company untill 1970 when it was parked in their warehouse.I purchased it in 2000 and was able to get it started and drove it home!I needed to redo the interior and do some touch up on some of the paint.The lettering on the sides is original from 47!Flathead V8 purrs like a kitten.

About “Son's ride”

1949 Chevrolet 3100 1/2 ton Pickup affectionately called the "Bull Nose" is a great looking pickup. Sporting an elegant 5-bar grille was one of America's most stylish post-war light trucks.
