From James :

           Hello! Here is a picture of my 1946 Chevrolet 2-ton Stakebed Truck. This truck was purchased by my Father (shown in picture sitting on it) when he first started out in business. It was used locally to haul paper rolls from a railroad yard in Binghamton (New York) to a local newspaper company in Binghamton. It was also used to haul boxes of shoes to a shoe company and occasionally to do a household moving job. It's longest trip was to Honesdale, Pennsylvania with a load of furniture. Other than that, it has stayed locally here in Binghamton.

           It has 31,250 original miles on it. It is equipped with a 2-speed rear axle and a Truckstell Wilcox conversion kit, which modified the rear with two large torque arms. It has remained in our company business all of its life. It helped start the company and take it where it is today.

           The truck was retired in 1970. It sat idle for 20 years until I decided to get it going again. I drive it on occasion locally and in parades.

           Anyone who would like to contact me, please do so through my forum profile mail account. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email.

Thank you.
