1935 Maple Leaf Truck

My Dad bought this truck in 1935 for 1250.00. He used it to haul logs to his sawmill, to haul grain and to haul  lumber
to the railway station.  It sat for many years until it was recently restored.  It was complete except for the radiator cap, so restoration was made easier as parts did not have to be searched for.

The log trailer on this truck was built by my father and his brother (a blacksmith) out of an old Federal chain driven truck.  The wood was restored at the same time that the truck was restored.
