My dad's first truck was a 69 Chevy van, Corvette blue. You could special order the color back them for $100.00.

My first TM was in a 1976 Dodge. It looked like an airplane or ship it was so long. Weighed down with a huge Steam Genie, she sagged.

My father started out in a 70"s Ford Fairlane Wagon. He built a wooden shelf that fit beside his scrubber and vacuums. It housed shampoo, brushes, a drop light and terry towels. Kinda fancy for a wagon but he really tricked out the Chevy when he bought it.

65 Ford falcon van, white with windows. Carried a Pacific 175 buffer/shampooer, Hild water vacuum and I forget what else. We had a play pen in the middle for Jeremy, our first.

Believe it or not it was that 71 dodge. It had an electromount. I threw in a generator and built my own propane heater. Like all my old crap i gave it to my Dad.

Still have it. Want to buy it?
Clean it up if you want to sell it.

We sell 3-5 trucks per year and people are really impressed with the like new look of our Butlers. It's an easy sale compared to what others are trying to sell.

what's the average amount of hours and miles on your butlers when you sell them? I've got a good friend who's gonna be in the market for a lightly used butler in a year or two
