    I drug this home today for my uncle.It's the nicest 28 closed cab you will ever find.The back panel has no dents.This started out as a tow truck.My brother in law decided to make a pick up out of it.It is cherry and I can't wait to build it.

    Wow, nice score. All I can find, at any price, are basket-cases.

    I am currently welding dust to shadows on a '29 CC/PU.
