#5 L110 SERIAL NO. 8157 The L series started in 1949 and went to 1952. Vern Stewart donated this 1951 model to Ken in 1981. It was purchased new in Athabasca, Alberta, by Mel Hughes. Hughes, some years later, traded it in for a car at Hoag's Garage, Rimbey. Walter Peabody was the salesman. Ken saw it there and wanting to buy it, offered $575 for it, but Hoag wanted $600. Walter said he would eat it before he would sell it for less, but Ken got it, without even a tooth mark, for his original offer. The year was 1958, and Ken owned that truck until 1963, when he traded it to Montalbetti Bros., Bluffton, for a new truck. The salesman was Wm. Rachuk. Ken later bought the old truck back and sold it privately to Bob Marshall in Wetaskiwin. Somehow he kept track of this old girl that was always called Nellie-Bellie, by his girls, until he bought it for the third time and restored it in 1982.
