I've often thought I'd like to pose my 1921 Chevy in front of that building,especially if there was a Waterloo Boy tractor parked out front.

Great looking Chevy pickup.You dont see too many of those Chevrolet roadster pickups around.Is this one a true John Deere parts/service truck?.If you come to the Park/Museum labour day weekend during Steam - Era you might get a chance for a picture opt with the truck and John Deere building

[QUOTE=casertractor;1411820]Great looking Chevy pickup.You dont see too many of those Chevrolet roadster pickups around.Is this one a true John Deere parts/service truck?

This truck was originally a touring car.It was cut down to a pickup after a fire damaged it in the mid 1920's.It was put in storage in 1931 and didn't see the light of day until I bought it 1972.
I added the decals a few years ago when a JD two cylinder club held a meet nearby.
