From Mike :

Here is my current project. It is a 1939 Chevy 1 1/2 ton Cabover from the Becker Brewery in Ogden, Utah.

I have been collecting memorabilia from this brewery for about 25 years. I heard about this delivery truck from another collector about 18 years ago. The directions he gave me were not correct and I could never find the truck.

About two years later, we were talking about the truck again and I said I couldn't find it. He told me the directions again (correct this time) and I found it sitting in a junkyard only one block from the old brewery.

Well, this is The Holy Grail of beer collecting, so I had to save it.

I rescued "Becky" in July of 1993 and have been slowly restoring her to her previous glory. I will be updating her to 12 volts and a full pressure 235, but otherwise she will be stock.

There are lots more pics in my Photobucket album so take a look at the progress and enjoy.
