Default Cab11 C8 Bush Find

I sold off two and then this one comes along. A bush find Cab11 C8 that has weathered well. I'll bring it right into the shop as soon as I get it out of the bush. It was jacked up as a "runner" so I will be interested to see if the engine turns over. Front wheels "free wheel" but I need to get the truck jacked off the blocks to see if the rear wheels turn.

There are two extra seats, what looks like fenders, the manual crank and an open ended boxy item along with a longer curved metal surface. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what they would be used for? I am going to assume that the steel tubing lattice work was some kind of framework for a tarp - post war?

Will have more info on the extraction as it occurs.

Default More pics of C8

Inside the cab looks remarkably good as well. There was a metal box with two fully functional Toledo road flares, a complete battery box, dog house with labels and most of the bits and bobs from the dash including wipers.

With the addition of a wood version 2H1 box, I think that this would make a great fair weather daily runner.

Rich, don't be too hasty on the cargo bows. This might be an original framework.
