Nope. Not a Chevy. But Bob is close on the year. And also, just to clarify, I'm talking about a pick-up truck, not a heavy truck.

Maybe I'll start in with the hints right away:

The car was built in the 50's.

geezered it...That cracks me up.


The car I am thinking of is not a Cadillac, but it was an expensive car for it's time. One of the more extravagant options was Mouton (sheepskin) carpeting. Another notable feature these cars had was doorjambs that were completely trimmed out in chrome.

Oh my God, I know the car with the chrome jambs, worked on one once years ago but can't for the life of me remember what it was!

Jet, is that "geezer" enough?

Brian
