They don't make 'em much tougher than this old guy. I loved that the owner of the Gold King Mine have rescued so many old great trucks and we can enjoy them today. No, they are not in pristine condition. Yet they have so much character, and I love them. I'd never heard of a Corbitt truck before.
According to Wikipedia: "Corbitt was an American automobile, truck, and farm equipment manufacturer. Founded as a horse-drawn carriage manufacturer in 1899, the company began building automobiles in 1907, and the business expanded over the years to include light and heavy trucks, intracity buses, personnel vehicles for the U.S. Army, and farm tractors. Based in Henderson, North Carolina, for its entire history, it sold in 1952 to the United Industrial Syndicate, a New York City-based company which gradually liquidated Corbitt and shut it down. The last production vehicles came off the line in 1954, though a few vehicles were cobbled together from leftover parts in the years after that."
Thank you for your comments and critiques.
Have a day full of smiles!
