I'm Back, sort of, and am adding this 55

Well, since it has been a while, I figured I would pop in, and say hi. I also figured I'd go ahead and post these here for you. It's a 1955 F-800 with 5,596 original miles. It was built here in Portland, Oregon, and has been in service since new. It was retired 2 years ago on 4th of July, when the charging system failed during the parade. The old trucks a beast, and is absolutely beautiful.

Looks like it will be an easy restoration Joe unless you are planning a lot of changes.
