John M 1934 Ford Pickup

40th Anniversary

It was 1974 while living in Utah that I saw this 1934 Ford Pickup with a "for sale" sign on her. I immediately contacted the number and within a few days became the new owner! That was some 40 years ago and I still own her! She is pretty much just like I bought her. She had been restored to a show truck back in 1955 with a 1953, 330 Cadillac engine. The truck was originally painted red and the previous owner had a minor fender bender in the Utah snow, so he painted the fenders black since he could not match the original paint. Other than that, she is basically a 1955 era restoration truck. Try finding one of those today! I drive her every other week and keep her charged up and ready to go. She is in our will to be transferred to our son when the time comes, just to keep her in the family! So, still in love with her and celebrating our 40th anniversary this year!

    Great "love story". I wrote it and just showed it to my wife of 48 years and she thought it was a very nice story! Gotta be worth at least one of those gift gas cards!
