1937 ½ Ton Pick Up Something To Smile About
As with most classic cars, there is always a story and this sleek red and white beauty has one that starts in Halifax, Nova Scotia!
Local Shelburne resident, Dave Smiley found this 1937 ½ Ton Ford Pickup for sale in Halifax, Nova Scotia just over six years ago and fell in love. Looking at its currently restored condition, re-painted, fixed hood with a 350 Chevy engine, this beauty is now fit to tackle any terrain and pull any trailer. When Smiley decided to drive the Ford back to Shelburne in its original condition, he didn’t realize what an adventure he was about to undertake as he got into this rusted, old, solid framed beast with no speedometer and no gas gage! As most Classic car enthusiasts would agree, the grief is worth the reward, and there was grief. Of course, Smiley did run out of gas on his return home and had to guess what speed he was going, but he made it back to Shelburne and now proudly drives his Ford with confidence. Smiley really does have something to smile about!
