The 1957 Ford T800 was bought brand new at Walch Ford in Elkader, Iowa in 1957 by JC Costigan Construction Company. The company built bridges and golf courses as well as farm ponds and cleared trees. This truck always hauled a 1956 Cat D-6 dozer and track type cranes. After many yers of work, it was retired in 1970 with 65,000 miles on it to the original owners farm for the purpose of moving his dozer as needed. It was then sold to one of his employees named Merlin Anderson. It was the Anderson family who took great care and restored this vehicle.
