From David :

           I was able to get my '41 1/2-ton home today. 41 Going to need alot of work.

           The truck was purchased new by Frank Bierner, a ranches from Cuchillo, New Mexico. The truck was used on his ranch until 1960 when he pulled the cylinder head for a valve job. Mr. Bierner passed away before he was able to reinstall the head. His wife let it sat until 1981.

           In 1981 Don Edmond of Chloride, New Mexico purchased it with plans of restoring it to use in the ghost town that Don is restoring. The truck sat in a field until 24 July 2006, when I bought it.

           The truck has a 4 speed trans and split rims. My plans for the truck are to restore the body to stock specs and modern suspension and powertrain. The truck has never been on a paved road under its own power -- the roads in this area were dirt until the late '90s.
