Written by the Owner of this 1963 Dodge Pick Up
The 1963 Dodge pick-up was bought new by my grandfather. It did spend every night in its own garage. He was a cabinet maker and drove to various jobs in south-central Mississippi in this truck. He drove it until shortly before his death in 1999. The trip to Toronto was the truck's first time out of the state of Mississippi. Documents we have indicate that it was purchased from Abney Motor Company, Bay Springs, Mississippi on May 31, 1963. It is funny to remember when he got his first "ANTIQUE" tag for the truck. He was quite upset with it being classified as an "ANTIQUE". He insisted that the truck "really was not old enough to be called an antique".
