Trailside Outtake: Fargo Pickup, I think

On a recent mountain bike ride, I noted a landmark on the map called “Old Truck”. Sure enough, a short climb later and there it was.

I’m not well versed on older non-Ford pickups but I’m pretty sure this is a Fargo, not a Dodge, based on the shape of the grill trim. From a quick Google image search, probably late 1940’s. And I am in Canada now, so that makes sense. The last Fargo I saw was much bigger, newer, and in Turkey. Here’s the inside view.

The remnants of this truck are on public land. I’m glad BCParks has chosen to leave it as an archaeological artifact and not haul it out as junk. One more angle.
