From David:

        Here are photos of my 1947 Canopy Express. I bought it from a lady in Virginia. She forwarded photos to me and it looked fair, so I bought it.

        Upon delivery, I noticed a flat floor. I removed the truck bench seat and found cheap flat galvanized sheet metal screwed on. I unscrewed the sheet metal and I saw the street.  It looked like the old lady from Virginia duped me. Further checking, rust was found in cowl and bed inner panels. I had the entire floor replaced, along with original secondary floor with correct bucket seats, cowl inner panels and metal patched bed panels.

        I’m currently doing a full frame up restoration and hopefully, it will look as good as my Black Jewel 1948 CE.
