Advanced Design 1950 Chevrolet 1300

From Alex Emond in Limerick, Saskatchewan: This handsome pick up appears roadworthy but semi-retired. Dig the visor ... the truck equivalent of a ball cap. Nobody was home - just a large sounding dog that was growling at me from the back porch. The original burglar alarm . Cheers , Alex
