1949 Chevrolet Wrecker
« on: April 24, 2018, 12:30:43 PM »
A "barn find" from the widow of the son of the family where the Kirk's came from in Kirk's Sineath.
I'm not sure how long it's been under the barn, but considering the phone number is BR-23456, I would assume a pretty good while. As a side note, our phone number is still technically the same, BR=27, which means BR-23456 is now just 272-3456.

Here's a shot of how we found it.


Here it is loaded on our rollback.


And an overview shot of the barn and truck.


Edit: thanks to JJG, I have corrected the year of the truck.

Wow, that's pretty cool, it is a 1953 instead of 63.

Jim, thank you for pointing that out! :)
When I posted it, I was going off second hand information, so now I've went and checked out the title personally.
The title says the truck is a 1949, and the title was issued in 1963. ::)
