From Don :

This a 1957 Chevy 3200 pickup. It belonged to my Wife's Grandfather. This Chevy Task Force truck was used on the farm for a fence running truck.

My Father-in-law just gave it to me in February 2009. My friend and I drove out to South Dakota to pick it up. It will now be in St. Francis, Minnesota. where we will start to restore it.

My FIL has the original Owner's Manual and all four hub caps. He will be bringing them to me along with the jack and the original GM key for the truck.

Additional pictures: from the front; the other side; the rear

My wife called it "The Bumble Bee Truck" because of the black driver's door that her Grandpa installed when she was a young girl. I had gotten hit in the door so then he painted the other door so they would look the same.

It will be a fun first project for me, knowing my wife rode in this truck in the '70's as a little girl.

I was told it has been stored since 1985.
