Have you seen one of these?

I have been looking for the milk truck pictured here.
I am willling to go the furthest corners to get it.
Keep me in mind should you find one in your neck of
the woods.

Did you try emailing the seller to find out if he is willing to sell that as well? I don't recall having seen a milk truck like that in ages, but I'll keep you in mind

The seller has made it clear the Divco is not for sale. If you google Divco milk trucks you get several hits, some 4 sale.

Seems like he had more questions about the truck than the trailer he was trying to sell.

While my sense of style has never been the envy of anyone I know, the lines on a 1959 Boles Aero don't do much for me. While everyone knows that an Airstream can't be beat, does the styling on that trailer appeal to anyone?

I don't care for it at all. But it's a Park model so aerodynamics aren't important.

Shouldn't that be jalousy? That's one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time

This is cool. There's a club for old milk trucks. http://www.divco.org/

Maybe?

Yoder Dairy in Virginia Beach, VA still does door to door delivery of milk. It's Mennonite and Amish owned and for years ran on a fleet of ancient trucks held together by prayer and baling wire. I wouldn't be surprised if they still had a few old carcasses out back of this vintage. You can google for their phone number - they don't have a website that I know of.

Lots of rust.

I did find a couple of 'decent' Divcos in Washington state, and when I arrived I felt the guy should have paid me to haul his junk away.

Stuff tends to be like that up here. If you find something sitting in a field, it's probably got no floor in it! People try to sell stuff they've left out in the rain for years and it's just junk.

Do you check Craigslist regularly? I checked my area and didn't find any, but it's just the sort of thing I'd expect to pop up now and then.

Will check Craiglist locally.

Steph,
I have never visited the Craiglist website. I will search for the one locally.
Thanks, Fabian
