Old Iron in Amherst

On my way back from Quebec yesterday I spotted this old iron taking a break at Tim Horton's/Wendy's in Amherst.

A 1947 Fargo pickup, which appears to be a well painted original with a newish coat of paint, and a beautifully restored ca. 1950 2-ton Studebaker.

I would love to learn more about the Stude's history. It's cargo body is home built and is carrying a couple of old gas engines. The R series 1949-53 Studes, with no running boards, were quite dashing looking trucks for their time.

In case you can't read the door markings it runs from Meadowbridge Motors, Kervins Korner, NB, Dial 4-1950, Ron Kervin Owner/Operator. It also carries the long defunct White Rose gasoline company logo.
