Dumptruck Dolly

My first attempt at documenting a build on "THE" forum...Let me introduce "Dumptruck Dolly". A 1967 Dually pulled from the field/yard in Nashwauk, MN. It was used as a hay hauler on a Hereford Farm. 292 4 speed and pretty bare of options. My goal is to keep it a running vehicle during the build, and to make it a functional truck..."if it works well, or as it was intended, keep it...sort of thing. I will be adding a dump box that an Ely craftsman built, using electric over hydraulic power.

The name you ask? Dolly was a cow my father-in-law had while growing up in Ely, not far from downtown. Maybe the truck should be called Downtown Dolly...
