  • More stuff for my '59 PU

    My uncle gave me some of the original paperwork for my truck. The guy he bought it from, Mr. Ryles, bought it used in May 1960 for $1389.64 from the local Buick dealer. He used it in his tractor repair business. In 1974, it ran hot so Mr. Ryles pulled the engine and overhauled it. He pushed it in his barn and there it sat, with engine still out, until 1994 when my Uncle Mitchel bought it. He redone it (and is also responsible for it being Omaha Orange) and later sold it to my Uncle James. (who's forst car was a '51 Champ Starlight which he still has at age 34) He kept it a while and sold it to my grandad, and I traded the '51 dump truck for it.
    It has been owned/registered in Jeff Davis county, GA from 1960 to now. Pretty cool.

    Here's the truck in 1994 seeing the light of day for the fist time since 1974. Mr. Claude Ryles, owner from 1960-1994, is pushing by the driver's door. My uncle Mitchel, who bought the truck, is by the pass. door, and my uncle James, who later got it from Mitchel, is by the tailgate.


    Here's the cab and front end in primer. The bed still has the original paint.


    Note a certain '63 Daytona sneaking into the pic.


    Paperwork.




    Now I just need the build sheet to confirm where it was sent to new, and then I'll know the complete history of the truck. [8D]

    That's some cool stuff to have Matthew. I've got most of that stuff on my Cruiser, everything except the build sheet. I need to get that, but I do know the history of mine from the dealer until now.

        It is great to have those photos and documentation. I bought a used 62 GT Hawk from a Buick Dealer in 1965. I wonder how the Buick dealer got your truck when it was only one year old.

            I've been wondering that too.
