    Very nice indeed,
    particularly like the shots out in the desert, looks very authentic as the gun motor carriage first saw action in North Africa I believe ?

    Where in SoCal are you? The shots in your driveway look like one of the beach cities.
    And a great looking restoration bye the way.

    Ah, Thanks for that. It looked familiar. And now back to the thread.
    Do you have restoration photos and more info on where it came from?

    I purchased the truck in Arizona and the previous two owners were also local. Before that I have no idea. I do not think this truck ever went overseas.

    I have a gawd awful lot of restoration photos. If you need something specific, please let me know.
