    I even think I mis-dated it; it's a 1946. Was told not many exist.
    Apparently the origin of the company's names is - -
    it is a truck that Peter built.
    Anyone that can confirm is welcome to educate me
    on this piece of history.

    Location is super top secret, but I did take more pictures.
    Apparently it's a Model 350, and Wow,
    Except for a new layer of dust, it's super clean,
    all original, and ready to run, on 6 new Michelins.
    Wheels + tires are the only thing not bone stock.

    Shouldn't have even shared the pix, but it's just too pretty.
    The back story is private, unfortunately, but there are
    only several known surviving, and less than 50? made.
    I was just blown away; "wanna see a nice old truck?"
    I was expecting to be shown an old rat bag on flat tires.
    You could check the oil, thump the tires, and drive 1000 mi.
    This things positively a museum piece. Scary nice.
