Late October early November I winterized my truck for the winter , but I failed .
The truck takes up most of my garage so at times needs to be moved out as to use the garage for other reasons .
In the 4 or 5 times I've had to move it It's accumulated about 700 miles just wondering around the back roads in my area .
Even around the freezing mark it works well and even keeps me warm .
Maybe I'll try harder next time !

That's a long driveway to get 700 miles.

I still use mine year round for daily farm chores just as the rest of the family has since she was new. It’s all original including the engine. It still rolls over and starts at zero degrees to go out and feed cattle on her old six volt system with the cutout generator. If it gets below that I will put on a magnetic oil pan heater just so she feel special. I thought about restoring it but I would probably park it and never drive it. Only about a mile of chore rounds are on blacktop so I don’t worry too much about salt, but I do rinse it off every time we have a day above freezing. 1935 was a good year for reliability I would say.

Notjustair, I remember your post on the Who uses their truck as a truck, thread.

Would love to see more images of it working, hauling feed while feeding in the winter, or whatever else it does while working.

Nice truck for sure. I suspect it would take the trophy for "Senior, working truck"
in our crew.
