Those pictures bring back a lot of fond memories. Alot of good times at Kevin's place, I really enjoyed driving that truck every chance I could. So slow but oh so cool!
My 14 year old son drove it last April, ah, the back roads of Wisconsin...... He had one big grin on his face.

Even if he was just looking for that particular truck and Kevins name was not involved you have to remember he bought this truck back in the beginning of November. The one you pointed out just sold beginning of this month. What are the odds of two of these trucks coming up for sale so close together?

Dirt, I hope you can swing the trailer somewhere along the line.

I strongly suspect Dirt's truck is a lot nicer than the museum truck. That museum stuff was.................. dusty.

Did Kevin tell you this truck came from Norway or Italy? Mine came from Italy for sure as evidenced by all the 1970's hard core Italian **** mags behind the driver's seat.

Yes, Kevin told me the truck was in a warehouse in Norway. The warehouse was completely full of Diamond T Prime Mover's, They removed 2 of the truck's and shipped them back to the U.S. One being a closed cab and the other being the open cab. While I was there that week at Kevin's some high roller flew in and bought the closed cab, at that point Kevin told me that he would never sell the open cab because it was so rare in the U.S.

P.S.

I looked behind the driver's seat....no mag's

After I left Ca. I blieve my open cab m20 got scraped, I could not bring it and may my m52 to Ga, had planned to in a few months, so much for plans, My m20 was NO WAY near the condition of this one, the ballest box was missing because the military had converted the truck to a heavy pull tractor before they got rid of it, I got it from the guy who got it from the military.

A GREAT TRUCK
