I have had this truck for 5 years and it has been a proven driver and has never left me stranded.I have shown this truck at so many car shows and it never disappoints.The Detriot Autorama was its most notable win, there have been many.The whole entire build of this truck was documented
This truck has been in multiple magazines and also has a neat history.
This truck was originally purchased by the Skala family to go the the Peoples brewery in Deluth to pickup beer to be brought back to Tower MN to sell at the Skala's bar in Tower.I have a picture of the original owner leaning against the truck back in the 30's when it was a long bed dually.Jack Skala hand wrote me a three page letter where he tells stories of goin with his uncle on the long drives to the brewery. They ran a whole story in the Tower newspaper about the truck and its history.
This truck is low. It can be tricky to load on trailers. Keep in mind that a typical transporter may have challenges
