Default Thursday: C8 outta the bush!

All going well, I will retrieve the C8 on Thursday. I'll post pictures of the extraction, no snow yet here so it will be (hopefully) straightforward.

Alex, do you have any pictures of what a Cab11 would look like with the dash hooks holding the doors open? I will check the centre console light while I'm there.

I did more research on the 1A1 body, the superstructure looks original along with the 2 seats, fender and locker box. The fuel tank looks like it was repositioned. Drive to Victory pg. 216 indicates that there were 89 Chev and 245 Ford vehicles built but it also states that this vehicle was not used by Canada in any active theatre.
