Nice R, and nice White 3000!

The 3000 was an S Malatesta truck and the R was Tom Amaducci's, we are trying to import all the NJ antiques to Mass.

Congrats on the purchase!

Nice truck.  I can't believe it took so long to sell.  The price was right. I have seen a lot less for way more. 

I like the Malatesta trucks too.

I was surprised that it was for sale for so long too. I think it was advertised only on the ATHS online ads so it might have gotten missed by a lot of people. This was the best truck by far for the price that i saw. It bobtailed 250 miles home and it didn't miss a beat.

Tom said it was a good truck with nothing wrong with it and I believe him.  I would have liked it but spent all my money last year on the house and junk Internationals.  Have fun with it. Mike.

I once had a 70 DM that had them, can't give exact years they used them.    terry:D

Half dogs started mid 60's until 1978ish.  I have looked at various factory photos and some trucks don't have them.  I haven't seen a truck order form.  Possibly an option?
