Jiggs' 1947 Ford Pickup

Danny Love shared this story and photos with us ~ This pristine 1947 Ford Pickup belonged to his Dad (aka Jiggs) Danny tells us that he remembers standing up as a young boy in the front seat just to be see out of the windshield. Danny is 54 years old now and says that he “can’t hardly get in the cab now.” He had the truck restored by Red River City Rods and Customs.

A complete frame-off restoration was done, and they clearly did a beautiful job. Danny just wishes his Dad Jiggs was still around to see it, but has lots of good memories of his Dad and this old truck.

Danny says “what I wouldn’t give to be able to hand the keys to my father and see him drive it around and shoot the bull with his friends about it.
