I've had the privilege to see it in person. It truly is a beautiful car, probably more so in person if that’s possible. Congratulations Ricky on finding the car of your dreams.

Funny story that goes with the car. I was looking for a 1912 running board bracket a few weeks ago on the forum. A man called me who had two. I asked him if he had an oil pan. He said no but he had a friend that did. I got in touch with the friend about the oil pan and he started telling me about his 1912 Delivery Car. I told him that was the car I had always wanted. He replied "It can be yours" . I told him yeah but I would have to sell a kidney to buy it. Here we are a month later and it's mine. I have to pee a little more often but what the heck!

For many years, beginning in 1931, Helms Olympic Bakery maintained a fleet of delivery trucks that cruised southern California residential neighborhoods. The driver would blow a distinctive whistle to let folks know he was on their block, and they would come out to the truck to buy their bread, doughnuts, cookies, and other baked goods. A memory-making part of the experience was smelling the heavenly aroma when the driver opened those back doors. Does this delivery have drawers for the products?
The inevitable often happens.

I doubt if that 1912 has drawers like the old Divco Helms trucks. To me, it's a shame whoever restored that truck put brass step plates on the beautiful running boards. Some people like them, and some people don't. I recently restored a 1913 roadster which had holes drilled for a tool box. It was a lot of work to get rid of them. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

It doesn’t have draws but it did come with an original wood crate with the same logo. The company was from 1893.

Kidneys are over-rated. Good move.

Hi Bill!
Well kidneys may be overrated, UNTIL they let you know who's boss! My right kidney told me that 2 sundays ago with a trip to the ER. This friday it's a trip to the surgery center to blast the stone that wont budge!
