Me too !

Can’t wait to get it home , it will be done by same guy that did their original logo .

he is a pin Striper that has lived all his life less then a half mile from where Herb and Herbie lived .

Wow! I bet you would have to pick up Herb’s jaw off the ground if he saw it. 😊 To take a “work truck” and make it functional artwork is something to be very proud of indeed. Bravo!

I wonder ! 
I can just see that  a big quiet smile with a pair of tongs and a bashing hammer next to the forage fire !
Says with a grin “, Darn português ,how am I going to use it now ?” I knew I could never put a square peg in a round hole when you came in the door !”

she is home done ! 30 months lot of patience and ups and downs , not to mention the checks $$$
Now I have my two IH’s one is restored to compete with Ford , Chevy , at car shows 

and honor my Dad and the first vehicle that I drove to school .

this one is restored to honor a man that helped me early in life and as a utility IH to show with ATHIS and tractor shows.

pictures of arrival !

the man in picture is my Nieghbor and life long friend Eddie He knows the very first chapter of this truck before I started following it . He remembers when it arrived in 1966 on propane and a pickup bed on it . I came in after Herb had removed the bed and started the flat bed in 1967 

the rear lic frame was the original we had it rechromed but it’s the Allied original frame . Beside tractors they sold many IH trucks .
