The sign above the barn door is an original "Dodge Brothers Approved Service Station" sign from about 1925.
The old truck is original. Still in good shape with 53,000 miles on the clock. I use it around the farm but try not to abuse it. Original flat six with 4 spd manual incorporating a "granny" low gear. Not much on the highway but it's geared low enough to pull/haul heavy loads at slow speeds. Never checked the rear gearing but I bet it's at least 4.88, maybe even 5.33. On the open road she's really humming at 55 mph!
