Don't often see 60 year old trucks in Maine, the saltwater state. Especially trucks like this one, clearly a survivor, not a meticulous restoration. Photographer Scott Dorrance spotted it on Park Street, just of Congress Street.

The only thing I can imagine is that the truck spent most of the last 6 decades in a
barn, or in a truck-friendly climate, like the other Portland. This is one of the Advanced Design Series trucks that GM produced 1947-55. I drove one from Banff, Alberta to Panther Junction, Texas (and back!) in 1984, with Mr Toby Clark. It wasn't the fastest road trip ever...
