    greetings bowtie fans
    here is one you won't see too often,
    i have only spotted a couple on the net in various countries, none in the US i have found yet.. right hand drive is an odd choice here but it's miles of smiles
    special ordered from the factory in 1967 by someone who owned property in england and here in CT
    they used the truck there for a dozen yrs and returned to the states with the truck
    a friend of mine soon after purchased it from them and he used it as a local mail truck for a long time
    truck was a lawn ornament for about 10yrs when i saved it
    it's been miles of smiles to some great shows, east coast hot rod nationals, rumblers show , a few cruise nights a week
    stumped many an ol timer with this truck at every one
    i did get to meet a former terrytown,ny plant worker who was there in 67 and he said they made very few of these trucks
    so few while "lefthand" production lines were running and one of these trucks were ordered
    they would load it on the line backwards so they wouldnt have to hop on the other side of the line to to their "normal" jobs
    looking for a good home for it if anyone is interested , i'll post a classified ad when allowed here
    speed safe! looks like a beauty of a weekend
