My late brother in law, a professional auto body man restored my first set of wheels.  According to family legend, I was 4 years old and asked my dad for this truck.  Seems the entire block had only little boys, except for me.  They would let me play with them, but only if I brought my own truck.  My dad bought this so I could be “one of the boys” 😉
