Desert Driver

Jerry Moyer of Jim Thorpe, PA purchased this fairly well-documented Rampside in January, 2012 in Alabama. The truck is a 4-speed and has a truck engine, but not the original.

Jerry found some paperwork with the truck that sheds some light on previous owners:

Year

Owner

Location

1988

Merle Brockman

Lancaster, CA

1984

Daniel Eugene Cassidy

Rosamond, CA

1966

Ernest L. Cassidy

Pico Rivera, CA

It appears that the truck spent most of its life in southern California and was owned by the Cassidy family for many years. You can see an original black California license plate in the photo below.

Jerry lives half the year in Navarre, FL near his son Mike. They restored the truck during 2012 and changed the color to maroon and white. Let's start with some photos taken when they purchased it:

In June 2012, Mike shared photos of progress on the truck's bodywork and paint:

In August 2012, Mike sent photos of the completed truck. Great job!
