Here it is being delivered to me from Colorado. It belonged to Sinton's Dairy in Colorado Springs.
I have rebuilt the drive train and have everything working. Just waiting for paint.
This is a picture of my grandfather's truck. This is how I plan to paint mine.
It may look rough, but it's a plesaure to drive around in.
Update: The rear in the truck is a 6:60 which equates to a top speed of 33 miles per hour (wow). Fritz acquired a 5:10 and installed it, now he can go at a blazing 45 mph!

Bret Geilman's DIVCO near Salt Lake City, Utah
I purchased this on e-bay, it was in Las Vegas. Immediate plans are to get it cleaned up and running just to tool around town. Longer range plans is to convert it to a custom van.

Restoration plans include repainting to the same color scheme as the Braley's Creamery Trucks from Dartmouth Mass., where his father Serry Gouveia worked in the early 50's.
I took this picture a couple of years ago. Rosenberger's Dairy's retirement jard. This is where I got my 306F. What a pretty sight, huh?

This is a 1963 300E. Mike plans a full restoration. The paint scheme will be white with black fenders and feature the "Shore Dairies, Inc." logo, Shore Dairies is where Mike's father worked.
Shane Cagle's DIVCO's Asheboro North Carolina
1966 300D 1948 UM8
Shane plans to restore the UM8 first. It was used by Melville Dairy in Burlington NC and then sat in a barn for 35 years. The 300D was used by Hunter Farms in Charlotte NC before it was turned into a beer truck.
Bob Gehres from Spokane Washington took these pictures. This DIVCO spent a number of years outside a restaurant. The new owner is getting it running to drive it around. Additional plans for restoration are unknown.
Looks Like a Hercules Flathead.
Thanks Bob for the pictures!
Don't ya just love the gas tank paint job?
August 2004 Update: Here it is all painted & lettered.
What a beautiful DIVCO. Fritz even had the lettering done by hand for that "original look".
Finally got it running. Here it is at a recent event.
