ABJ’s 40 Stake Bed

LOL…I accidentally made this one “public” after uploading the picture from my iPhone.

Aunt Betty Jo and Uncle Bob bought this truck from a farm way out west on Manchester/Hwy 100, past Ballwin, back in the mid/late 70’s. I have ridden in it several times before I was old enough to drive, and even got to drive it quite a bit before I was 16, working on their properties up north of St Charles, MO.

The truck is in pretty good shape, although, the glass has separated and all the rubber is dry rotted. She and I have talked quite a bit about the truck, and I believe that I will be bringing it to my house, as soon as I make room in the garage. At that time, it will be new brake lines, wheel cylinders and master cylinder, and hopefully some putting around town!
