This is a 1 owner truck from Saskatchewan. I replaced the plugs and wires, now it runs like a top! The clutch needs some attention as well as the brakes.

Re: 57 S130 from BC Canada

My daughter and I are assembling a 1952 L110, Shorty, for her. Watch for it on this forum. This "L" has a 4bta Cummins/TH475/NVG241C transfercase and Dana 44 axles.
all of the parts and pieces are in storage waiting to be assembled.
A few years ago I found and bought a fairly rare "R" crewcab. If I live long enough this "R" will become a 4X4 with Cummins power.

Very nice stuff. That crew cab is pretty wild! And the diesel, awesome.

The green 1953 R120 4X4 had a 6.9 V8 Diesel in in when that picture was taken. That 6.9 Diesel was so big I had to build the "R" around the engine.

Great picture of a great truck! The photo almost looks like an oil painting.
