This old dodge fuel truck has been on my brother in laws century old dairy farm in se mo. since the 60's . He has the original 6 foot Texaco letters that go on the side of the tank in his work shop along with the original fire chief door signs ,the funny thing is his dad told me that they used it for years to water turkeys they also raised in the 70's.I also got a picture of the k model rush vis. on the farm as well. It also was from a Texaco jobber and I am assuming the same one I try to post it as well some time. I was down there Christmas and took this picture and thought you all would enjoy.

Travis that is a cool truck & story. That truck would look good sitting by a gas station setup next to a couple pumps smile
Cant wait to see the Rush I have one of those in my shed. Cool pumps.

Seems a shame to let that truck jus go to seed. There are lots of parts available to Dodge truck builders these days . Just look at a copy of Vintage truck Magazine . Ed Shaver

DB I see you and others on here and really have enjoyed this sight , I think you and Dave need to come to Missouri and you can stay at my place until we can get that old truck going and Dave can drive you back to calf , Then to new York! My brother in law is the only problem? Ha

I had a Rush pump for 33 years & sold it this fall at auction.
Miss it but I live out in country & was afraid some scraper would haul it of while is out of town,they will take the sideing
of your house & the copper from your plumbing.
