Does Jerry still have this gem??Absolutely!!!.
That and several other exquisitely restored examples. I watched this COE in progress. Jerry does nothing half-hearted.

I saw that truck first at the International Meet in Charlotte, NC several years ago. It is an amazing vehicle.

Yes, it is a well-known truck within SDC. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?2251-Jerry-Kurtz-1939-Soda-Truck

Certainly a head turner.

I'm happy to say I restored the grill surround on the truck (stainless) and with Jerry's collaboration we fabricated the top joining piece for the grill surround. That truck is something Mr. Kurtz should be proud of for certain.

IIRC the box on the truck was made almost completely from scratch. This is a photo from a local show (Straustown, PA) and Jerry brought along a couple cases of 8 oz. bottles of Coca-Cola to give to children...
