From Rick :

           Hi all! This is my 1950 Chevy 3800 stake truck. I purchased it for a song from a guy in nearby Napa. I have replaced most of small stuff on the truck plus gave the cab a painting inside and out. It still has its original 216 with a top speed of 45 mph.

           Except for the wheel cylinders and brake hubs, all parts were very easy to obtain. I use it to haul grapes from my vineyard at harvest time. Sometimes I'll haul other heavy equipment. I also use it as a shooting platform for my photography business.
