Well I brought the "puppy" home today. I pulled it out of the woods and out of the scrappers hands (maybe). Here are some starting pics. John.

I put in a search request with Mack, but it is set up as a fuel truck with 5 seperate compartments and has a PTO pump and a 6volt Gasboy pump. It has the fuel reel and all hoses. I would like to put it back to an as built truck but plan "B" would be to take off the fuel body and put on a hydrolic pump and oak dump bed on it. The hood had a dent in it so I reached in to just "pop" it back out, I might have to use a very big hammer, that steel is heavy! I will be looking for a right door though, it is gone. Thanks, John.

The door pillar wood is bad but the steel is in good shape. The driver side still holds screws but would need to be replaced. Yeah, that Chevy is another one of my projects I have to do. It is a 1972 C-30 with a 350 4SPD.
