1958 Chevrolet Apache 31; 1964 Chevrolet C20; and Kenneth Roberts' "Arundel"

I'm guessing this is a 1964 Chevrolet C20. I was in Arundel Maine, near the Kennebunkport town line. Arundel used to be North Kennebunkport. And Kennebunkport used to be Arundel. Go figure. Also, do read Kenneth Roberts' great novel  Arundel. about the Benedict Arnold expedition to Quebec. And if you know who has the film rights please let me know. I've been trying to track them for years. The last I heard the documents were possibly filed in carton possibly stored in a garage somewhere in the San Fernando Valley, possibly in possession of Roberts' lawyer's descendants. I want to make that movie.
