My wonderful wife bought this for me as a 24th anniversary gift! It was green when I got it. A previous owner had converted it to 12 volt and spot welded a sheet of metal over the wood bed. It was still running with the original motor and drive train. The serial numbers revealed it was built in the Kansas City plant.
Between several friends, my wife and three boys, we have it this far along. It's fun to drive and tinker with and pretty to look at! It makes me forget about the mice droppings, rust and mud daubers nests!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
