From Jeremey :
This is my 1963 Chevy C-30 dually stake bed. I just bought it from an 85-year old lady whose husband passed away 10 years ago. This was his truck. She has kept it up with licensing, battery, insurance, etc. -- even driving it occasionally to keep it running. Finally she decided it was time to sell it. I happened to see it just as the ad was posted on Craig’s List. I only had saved half the money I needed and was really only window shopping at this point but my wife, who loves me dearly, God bless her, helped me come up with the other half.
This is really a neat old truck and in very good condition. Originally a 6 cylinder, it now has a 350 with a 4 speed. The bumper, grille and wheels are powder coated white. It has been converted to power brakes. The paint, tires, engine, interior and wood on the bed are all in great shape!
June, who I bought the truck from, showed me a trophy that her husband won when he showed the truck in 1997 at Kool April Nights in Redding, CA. She was only asking $2000 for this amazing truck, although she did know that it was worth more. I felt so incredibly lucky to get this truck. She was happy to see it going to a good home.
June's kids (grown) took pictures of me and her and the truck before I drove away. It was kind of sad for them to see it go and made me think that with luck I will pass it on to my kids and hope they will want to keep it.
