This is another one of those “classic” vehicles that, while cool, I’m not sure who the buyer is. There’s a lot of rust, and since I doubt there are a lot of companies making restoration parts for old milk trucks, it’s going to take a lot of fabrication to repair it. It’s almost like the seller needs to find a retired milkman who has enough sentimental attachment to his old ride to take a flyer on this. Regardless, it’s still a neat bit of functional-yet-attractive design, and harkens to a bygone era – and since a lot about collector cars is driven by nostalgia, that might be the seller’s best hope. Not for me, but still a cool find.
