It’s A 1949

A few weeks ago, Motor Man and I happened to notice an interesting looking old vehicle located not far from our shop.

Our buddy, “Lugnut”, frequently works at that location, and a few days later when we passed by and saw him,  we stopped.

Turns out, it’s his vehicle. Motor Man insisted I climb inside and sit in the driver’s seat. (Since this project is a “work in progress”, it probably wasn’t the best day for me to be wearing white slacks.)

This is a 1949 Ford, built as a mail truck. It’s hard for me to remember: mail truck or milk truck. I had to message Lugnut as I was writing this post and ask him again.

The previous owner had begun transforming it into an ice cream truck. Although it’s a Ford,  it now has a Chevrolet “heart” (Motor Man’s word for engine).

Lugnut isn’t sure what his exact plans are for this sweet little truck.

Ice cream, anyone?
