You can still see some of the U-Haul orange paint coming through that green. This is also the same truck I cut my teeth on while growing up with my dad. I spent alot of time in that thing. The only straight piece on the truck was the front bumper that a welding buddy (Andy) made for him. Believe it or not we tried to buy it that day but they meathead who owned it wouldn't part with it even in this condition. My Father Sold unit#156 in 1972.

Makes you mad to see a piece of equipment in that condition. Especially when you built it.

Hopefully the man will have a change of heart and sell it back to you. "Stay Safe,Work Smart

Michael, don't give up hope on buying it back! My grandpa sold his Holmes 525 in 1973 to the city shop and I am just watching to see when they retire it and put it in the surplus auction. Bob
