Why is it that the inside of old truck cabs smell so good?

Fargo

I have a Fargo emblem, came off the nose of a Fargo Power Wagon cant recall what year it was though, I am thinking it was a 1951?

It has nicks and scratches and even a pit or two, but it's the correct Fargo emblem for a Power Wagon.

I posted the pic more or less so people would know what the correct Fargo emblem for a power wagon looks like instead of other Fargo emblems from other year Fargo trucks.

It was not my intent to advertize it for sale. I guess that is what people thought though, as I have already got a few emails asking how much I want for it. I might consider selling it, but I paid a crazy amount for it because I wanted it at the time.

Name your price marklefranc@hotmail.com was looking at getting some replicas made if i did find one. once this was done could send you one or the oringinal back maybe we could work something out. Picked up my boxsides from matt in kentucky last year andf know he wanted one so i think the intrest for some replicas might be there.
