OWNER SAYS: “I bought this truck new in 1991 to work on my green­house farm. It had a cargo cap on it, and I would ship flower bas­kets and bed­ding plants to gar­den cen­ters. Af­ter I re­tired from farm­ing, I gave the truck a high-qual­ity paintjob. I only use it for cruis­ing and lo­cal car shows now. I own two of th­ese trucks; both were used on the farm. When I re­tired, the white truck got the de­tail­ing and the other truck got the hot-rod mods. I think I have the best of

both worlds.”
