i have been cleaning up old farm yards and came across a old truck
the truck looks like its from the fifties era. it has gauges, thottle linkage and a start button all in the grill from the factory. im wondering what would be the reason for this. and yes im pulling the truck back to my family farm to add to the collection of other trucks. thank you for ur help in this mystery.

how about a couple of pictures of this truck. I am curious about engine controls in the grille. Maybe was used as a power supply in a factory or mill of some sort.

Your truck could have been a firetruck at one time. Controls on the front were for the pumps run off of a pto.
