We restored a really cool old bread truck .

The truck- It all started when we stumbled upon the old girl sitting behind a building in Pine Brook NJ. The truck is a 1953 International Harvester Metro, model RM-150. The truck is all original. Straight 6 Silver Diamond 220 Motor, 3 speed on the tree. The trucks most recent history- it was used as a television prop on a TV show called Storyforia. It was owned by Little Airplanes productions in NYC. The truck was then sent to storage in 2008 where is was abandon and sat for 10 years.

Chef Koch Purchased the truck for $400 dollars, and had her towed home. It was a true diamond in the rough. With help from John Martellacci (Luc's dad) and other family / friends; we were able to complete the construction of truck in about 7 months time. The truck took a collective time of approximately 1500 hours of work. 

The truck, being original in drive train, and chassis, is fully customized with metal fabricated parts, electrical, propane, and water systems,and all hand painted graphics to finish her off!
