This truck has a bit of a story behind it. Up until this past week, this truck was being used as a support for a run of copper pipe at my parent’s house. It’s been like that since they moved in ~30 years ago. Possibly longer, as that house was built in 1966. Anyway; they just had some plumbing work done, so this truck has now been relieved of duty. Now it’s time to take a closer look.

There are no markings of any kind, except for a # 2 on the underside of the roof of the cab, and a #19 and #24 on the wheels (likely cavity IDs from injection molding). I suspect that it is not complete; maybe it was a dump truck or something else?
