On the road, Maine Route 3, from Augusta to Belfast. Hectic with summer traffic because it's one of the ways people from Away get to Acadia National Park. I was still within Augusta when I saw a '55 Chevrolet 150 parked out front of a house, for sale, and when I stopped the owner showed me this handsome truck. The deep green, a factory shade, reads black in these photos. Very clean truck, and the owner said it was a Maine original, from Eagle Lake, which is up in The County. Would certainly lose those wide whites, though.
We admire Advanced Design Chevys. A 5-window was up for auction a while back.
