This truck was owned by a brewery in Cold Springs, Minnesota, USA who used it for sports events and such, because of its refrigerated body. It was restored by Myron Felix and Bill Richardson saw it when he attended the American truck historical show in 1996. Bill Richardson bought it from him shortly afterwards. These cab over models were not imported to New Zealand.
