My dad went in to business in 1958. Opened a furniture store and their delivery truck at that time was EXACTLY like this. Same color and everything. The only thing that's missing in this picture is the canvas canopy that goes over the frame......believe me, that's what goes there cause his had it as well!

Daniel, I know! I've been trying to find a decent one for years, but just can't get myself to part with that kind of cash, although it would put a huge smile on dad's face. My pop is 86 years old and still going strong. In fact, in a couple of weeks he is finally getting ready to retire (again) for good. He's been selling major appliances at Home Depot and they hate to see him go!

We had a 411 variant stationwagon a long time ago in South Africa. They had a known fault. The twin downdraft carbs wer mounted on rubber isolation induction tubes and linked across the engine with a throttle bar. The whole lot, two carbs and throttle assembly would drop off the mounts, spill petrol everywhere and catch fire.

Ours did!
