Wanted ------Divco milk truck

Recommended Posts

Guest

Bob, BELIEVE it or NOT, I have seen one sitting on the North side of the road, on 220 east, between Jersy Shore and Williamsport PA. Looks like the engine is gone, and hood? but don't know what you need. Happy hunting, should be less than a three hour drive for you.

The best parts source I have found is a Gentleman by the name of John Rienzo. He can be contacted via access at the Divco Club website. He has written a top notch book on Divco history. As well as suppling a super informative book he owns and has worked on Divco trucks. He is not an armchair expert but the real deal if you know what I mean.

He has been a huge asset to me during the restoration of my 36 S Model Divco.

If you would like you can PM me with your contact information. I will forward it on to John.

You may also find him in the ATHS and AACA directory. I believe he is a member of both.

1952 on a 79 Chevrolet ambulance chassis. Runs, but no radiator installed yet. Chopped eight inches, has fabricated doors and the hood is welded up and tilts forward, All NEW sides and back. ZERO rust. $3700.

Located in NW Oregon.

This would make a fun ride with all of the major work already done. Have clear titles to both the Divco and the Chevrolet.

These are the only pics that I have presently.

I have fit a radiator now, but have not put coolant into it yet. I though I would wait until spring.

The paint is just to preotect it, It would need some smoothing out if thats what you need. I think it looks pretty good like it is.

$4000.

I would like to find one that is still all original so I could drive it around standing up,dont know how long it would stay original as the top speed is way too slow for me but it would be fun to freak some people out as I doubt many now have actually see those trucks in operation.

They are cool in the original form. I dont see very many that are not rust buckets though. When I was a kid I befriended the milk guy in our neighborhood and rode around with him some. His truck had blocks of ice just laying on the floor melting. He got new blocks of ice daily, thus the rusty floors.

When these trucks were put out of service thay usually got stuck out behind the dairy barn to get even rustier.

I am interested in old Divco delivery trucks OR Twin Coach "bread" trucks or any other type of smaller like vehicle.

I am interested in one that needs some repair and want to customize the paint job.

Anybody know of any of these hanging out in a field or storage facility somewhere? Prefer something on the east side of US.

thanks

Is this one still available? What stage is it in now and how much? I'm in Central California, where in Oregon is it?

Email me more pics, interior would be nice. Is it drivable?
