Mike,

The hitch looks good. That should certainly come in handy.

On another subject, I see that you have a nice restored 1937 Texas plate on the truck. However, in the picture it appears to be white on black. The plate should have been done as ivory on black. If interested, you can go to this site to research the history of Texas plates...

Hurst,
Actually it is ivory on black, I guess the pics lost some fidelity.I researched it very thoroughly beore i restored them because i was afraid an uninformed clerk at the dmv would summarily disapprove them, so I had the specs and the regs all printed up ready to defend my application. But I forgot how friendly most small town folks are and the clerk just said "Ooh, how pretty!" when she saw the plates and promptly processed my paperwork.

I've attached a new pic with a white board at the top to try to highlight the ivory of the letters.

Yes, that pic looks much closer to ivory. I just noticed the color since I have had quite a few restored . I only use the year plate on the front because I get the antique plate from the DMV for the rear so I don't have to get it inspected.

If you ever want to have one restored, I recommend this guy in TN as he does immaculate work, just takes a long time...

ArmyMike In the late sixties I think they had some rubber ones with a drain hole that with use would break in two and just be a mess on your chain but it did help the paint some. On my homemade bed made some flat iron ones that hide in the crack. Those work great!!

My '37 has what I believe are the original covers. They appear to be some kind of light canvas.
