My wife loves pretty wood!  I was aware this 62 A may have been upgraded when I purchased it. Serial #260992. Wink RDB

Wow, someone dropped plenty dough to “upgrade” this 62!  Anyone who’d prefer it “factory original” is daft.  Sure doesn’t deserve that ugly name you applied to it.

I think I’d be able to overlook a lack of originality, but just this once. 😉 I’m a sucker for nice wood and the craftsman involved here certainly didn’t let it go to waste.

Speaking of ’51 Chevy 3100 5 window pickup trucks, here’s a picture of mine that I bought in 1995 from a guy in Southern California and had it shipped home here in upstate NY.

It was a great truck that I sold several years ago and doubled my money.

I wish I still had it but I enjoyed it for many years.

You guys do not recognize a cool car when you see one. Bought this SS for my wife, new in 1968. Gone now, with so many others. Hi Bill. Still have the 38-44 and the rifles I bought from you. Big Larry

You guys aren’t fooling anyone. You bought your wife something you wanted but it would of ruffled the nest. I know because I did the same thing when I spent 1K on a Winchester I wanted. She loves “her” rifle.
