Nice truck i have a 1955.1 in the same condition . One of my first times on the road to the store, an older gentleman commented that he used to drive one when he was younger. He asked a few questions and we parted ways. As i was just about through the store doorway he yelled out "Don't paint it ". I didn't think much about it but eight years later i still have strangers say the same thing. Something about the rust that people love. You might grow fond of it too. Good luck with whatever you do and remember it's YOUR truck

Anyone have any info of how to insure it? Or a recommendation on a company to insure it with! I'll have to order the maintenance manual for the truck and start tinkering with the motor and try to get it to move under it's own power. Thanks guys!

Will the truck be your primary vehicle?

If not, check with Hagerty Insurance.

I went thru USAA For insurance and they directed me to American Collector’s Insurance Company. [secure.americancollectors.com]. I have it registered as a historic vehicle so I’m limited to 1,000 miles a year, to going to events and an occasional jaunt about town. This does sound a bit limiting but I have collision/comp and liability for less than two hundred dollars a year. If I registered it as a daily driver it would be well over a thousand.

I went through my other vehicle insurance company. State Farm added it to the policy for a minimum cost. Just needed a picture of the truck

Hagerty insurance is actually pretty awesome also if you decide to shop around later.
