The good news: the engine of the 'ol lady is humming and running!
On October 6th she's going for the inspection institute and when she finally gets her official papers, she'll be on the road again. :-)
As far as we know now the model is from 1930. That explains the huge headlamps.
The attached picture sows the original Chevrolet Superior, once belonged by the grandfather of the previous owner -Johnny Jonker- of the Chevy truck wich is now ours.
His grandfather started a transport company in 1927 and this was his first truck.
Grandpa Jonker bought a custom four wheeler, 1.5 ton.
But he asked the local dealer to make it a six wheeler, so the truck could carry a 3 ton weight.
He than had the heaviest truck in the wide wide neighbourhood!
The original Superior has been demolished ages ago but the grandson bought the 'new' truck in 1986.
Take a good look and you see two ornaments at both sides of the front window.
Does anyone know the meaning of these ornaments?
