    Ugly but rare milk truck

     



    I stumbled into another truck/project. I purchased some 67-72 parts from a guy in a town about 15 miles from me. It was muddy and I had to go to work so we agreed I would pick the stuff up a drier day. I paid him and left. Long story short I could never get a hold of him and then when I did he didn't remember me paying him. I told him where he was standing when I gave him the cash. He said he would think on it and once again, I couldn't get a hold of him.

    I knew he was selling a lot of stuff because he sold his property to developers. This guy has a lot, I mean a lot of stuff. A couple of weeks ago I get a call on a Monday and it was the guy. He said he was sorry how things went down and he felt really bad about it. He said he had a milk truck for sale that he had to have gone by the next day. He said come out and get it and you can have it for what you already paid me. I knew of the truck but I wasn't sure about it.

    I went and looked at it and decided, what the hay. I have little investment in it and I've never seen another like it. I can't even find another like it on the net. Th next morning I went to retrieve the truck. It had 3 flat tires on the LH side and she was sunk into the ground. The guy had his hired hand bring his skid loader down to assist loading it and the skid loader is no match. I really did not think this thing would be as heavy as it is. Long story short I had to cut my fender off my trailer to get it on the trailer and out of there. The fenders need work and I want to make them removable anyhow. But now we are the proud owners of a 1969 Chevy milk truck. It is a C30 but has 1.5ton suspension. I was going to sell it but I think my wife wants me to build her an ice cream truck so for now the heavy pig resides on the trailer. Haha

    The floor of the cab area is rusty due to setting for years with no glass due to punks breaking it out of it. I can fix all of that. It has no power brakes, or power steering. i think I will put it on 8 lug disc brakes and it won't have a spark plug engine. But then again, we might sell it. It's up to her on this one.

    I think it would look cool painted white, with aluminum wheels and a big waffle cone painted on the side.

    Man that looks pretty cool, and the body looks pretty solid. You sure stumble across some odd stuff! Lol

    Just curious, why do you hate spark plugs so much?!

    I don't hate them. I just don't have many good ones laying around and they cost too much to feed if you want to work them. I just don't know how you could justify putting a gas burner in this heavy thing and then drive it around getting 6mpg's and have no power. I should weigh it before I off load it. The box is steel and fully insulated and I'm guessing there is the weight. Maybe if I didn't have a few cummins engines laying around I would have a different attitude on it.
