In early August each year, our city is invaded by flocks of campers whose aim is to attend the Missouri State Fair.
I did not attend this year.
But I was lucky to see this little gem parked along 16th Street a few days after the fair was over. I probably should say gem(s). That 1930’s truck is definitely an original. But I’m not knowledgable enough to know if the teardrop camper is Really from the 40’s or 50’s. You be the judge.
Please take a few to stop in at Norm 2.0 where folks have been camping out with their door discoveries for quite awhile. Just follow his directions to the blue frog.
When a cousin drops by for a visit to let you know he’s clear-coating his ’69 Ford Pick-up, you might be a bit ‘Optimistic’ about the future of our youth. Just take a look at this leather, custom-made, grill cover.
Even better still, here’s the whole truck.
Seth, you are one of the good ones!
Daddy had one just like it, 3-speed on the column, a heater that was equivalent to a blast furnace, and hauled a few livestock in the pick-up bed here and there. Only difference was it was painted Hunter green. My ‘Hunter’ cousins will appreciate that the most 🙂
Sorry no pictures of daddy’s truck….yet. Searching.
