This past July I bought the Federal C2 wrecker at the Jeff Chester auction in Ohio. and it was delivered a few weeks ago. The truck is a great old survivor. It was bought by a house moving company in New Jersey after the war, and was kept inside while they had it. It was saved from a scrap yard by a man in New Jersey around 2007-2008, and was driven home. Jeff Chester bought it in 2009 with thoughts of building a World War Two museum, but those plans didn't pan out and most of Jeff's stuff was sold at auction in July. The truck is very well preserved, and the sheet metal is pretty straight with very little rust. The cab is wood frame, and although the wood is old and weathered, it is not rotten and fairly solid for now. The driver's door is the worst part of the cab, it is separating and is difficult to open and close, but is not falling off yet like many others. Unfortunately the years of being stored outside have locked the engine; water has accumulated around the spark plugs, and two have rusted off and let water into those cylinders. I'm working on getting the heads off and assessing the damage. But despite the engine woes I am pretty happy with the truck. Restoration is not going to happen for a few years, I have some other projects to do first, so for now I would like to get the truck running and operating. A crane truck would be pretty handy to have around the shop !
