Got Milk Truck? 1964 Ford Dairy Truck Selling for $8,000
Over Ford’s history, the company has built everything from police wagons to ice cream trucks and everything in between. However, many of these work specific trucks get overlooked in the collector car market and only go for pennies on the dollar. Recently, this 1964 Boyertown Ford came up for sale and it is an absolute peach, except that it used to deliver milk and eggs.
According to the seller, “Ford Chassis. Strong running, 292 “Y” block V8 engine. 4 speed manual transmission. Dual rear wheels. Diamond plate flooring. Roll up back door. Clear Title. Mileage unknown. Runs great ! New Clutch with less than 50 miles on it. Set up as an old Medford, NJ milk truck. 16′ long 7.5′ wide 8.5′ high 9′ wheelbase Easy and fun to drive and park. Microfiche parts set, Spare tire and rim, and 2 “Adams Dairy” milk bottles and caps! Registered as a Ford Van.
Includes but not installed: the original “cow catcher” grille, New, after market gauges: Oil pressure, Temp, and voltage and, A Pioneer DEH P47DL AM/FM/CD Stereo with 6 CD changer and cables (no speakers)This truck is a pleasure to drive! I have participated in several parades and get “thumbs up” all the time. It is always a hit at the local cruises, and car shows, and has been well kept and clean, and it runs like a top! This was a “father and son” restoration project. Adams Dairy was in Medford quite a while back. We found a milk bottle cardboard cap with the name and lettering when remodeling our home. The logo on the side of this truck was applied by a local sign company and can be removed and replaced. The door for the transmission and the door and removable panels around the engine make it super easy to access and tinker with.
The Boyertown Bodyworks Company would buy new Ford and GM chassis from dealerships and build trucks for different purposes. Some were parcel delivery, bread, and longer chassis were used for Mr. Softee. Others (this one) were set up as a fire department canteen. These trucks would assist the firefighters with supplies, coffee and sandwiches, etc.”
The seller only wants $8,000, which is probably a fifth of what went into restoring this beautiful oddity. If you’re interested, head on over to Hemmings and take a look at the truck.
