There's a truck pretty much identical to that one about 40 miles north of me. I keep my eye on it and it moves, so I guess the farmer still uses it. Someday Imagonna call him. Need to have room for it first.

Looks like a pretty good truck for a fair dollar. Ad doesn't say if it has the Champion six or the bigger Commander six. The latter engine is much nicer to have in a truck.

If its truly a 1 1/2 ton truck (2R16A), then it would have the Commander engine which was standard from the factory for a 1953 model.

I would love to have a big truck like that, but I don't know what I would do with it. [:o)] If it was road worthy I wouldn't even mind driving it back to Arkansas, but I would want to allow plenty of time. An adventure like that would be a good story for Turning Wheels. :D
