Ok all you folks who like to keep everything old in thier original condition, STOP READING NOW!!! This is how I got this old beauti, but I've already dis-assembled and started to restore. I'm making a new grill,fixing the worn wheels and axles ,and thinking about a color scheme. My 2 options are: 1) replicate an original Coca-cola version(Red body, yellow bed, or 2) "57 chevy turqupoise with off white fenders & black running boards.
Any thoughts??suggestions welcome!

    Hey Bernie, I love it! Even though it won't be original, I would go Coke all the way!
    Could be a very cool restoration!

    Thank Perry, I'm leaning towards that option myself. Always good to have another piece for the "coke room"!

    I had one of the original Coke trucks like that if you want a photo. Thomas Toys sells the grill and wheels for it. http://www.thomastoysantiquetoyparts.com/main.sc

    Do show us the end results.

    On your truck, how about Pepsi blue body and cream stake body. Oh! yes, how are you making a grille? I have several of Marx and Wyandotte pressed steel trucks as well, and I need some grills. Please advise. Good luck with your restoring. Kidtwist.

    Thank-you kidtwist for the comments. There is a link above to order, or what I did was to make a paper template, tracing it out onto sheet galv. that I had, and cutting it out. Then lots of shaping & triming!
