    Got her painted still have a few things to button up, My dad found the original receipt from 1954 while going thru some old ledgers and paperwork thought you all might get a kick out of it.

    That is really cool. Nice color too. What was the license on the receipt? The registration?

    Awesome truck with a great history you have there. Growing up my neighbor had a '54 IH that he used to use for parades and let me drive around with him in when I was a kid. It was rough. A few years ago I tracked him down and offered him $4000 for it and he wouldn't take it.

    The interior did not get done other than the seat the rest just got a good cleaning. I have no idea what it is worth now, doesnt really matter much might be fun to find out I guess. Thanks again for all the positive remarks. The old girl will be well cared for and someday my son will have her.
