1953 Chevrolet 1 ton

from Alex Emond in Saskatchewan: "Here is a classic truck in a small hamlet just south east of Swift Current  It's got that funky Saskatchewan sunburn but no serious rust or dings or missing parts, right down to the hub caps . This was the year that the current Queen of England started her gig , the year that Everest was 'conquered' . Everest will never be conquered and this truck will never go out of style."-AE
 1430 was the Canadian one-ton, basically a US Chevrolet 3800.
