From Troyal :

        Here is my 1959 Apache 36. This Task Force truck belonged to my Great-Grandfather who passed away in 1965. My Grandmother use to haul her Jersey cows to all the fairs with this truck. It has been sitting for more than 12 years uncovered, in all the elements. All by her lonesome. My Mom was easily convinced to buy it for me so I could restore it and keep it in the family (fourth generation truck).

        I have liked the truck since I was about 10 years old. I am 15 now. I am anxious to restore her! I have a friend who will be helping, along with both our Dads, to bring "'Betsy" back to action.

        My Mom has all these great memories of riding in the big red truck to the Fairs around Washington state. My Great-Grandfather had built a box for the back. But that was destroyed years ago so she could be used as a flat bed ... which didn't happen.

        These are photos that me and my Mom took: me looking under the hood ~ interior ~ cab ~ engine .

Thank you,

Troyal Notar
