Found: The Ice Cream Truck from Nice Dreams

For a very long time, we've wondered where the ice cream truck from Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams vanished to. Well, it's been found.

Tim Petty of Ocala, Florida purchased the 1950 Chevrolet Good Humor Ice Cream Truck from "a company in St. Louis that specializes in vehicles for movies." The wheels and dashboard had been painted white for the film. It needed major restorations.

Read the article and see a photo of what it looks like now here.

I hate to criticize, but comparing the 'Found' truck to the one in the movie, they are not the same. The rear half of the ruck is completely different. The rear fender didnt extend all the way to the door and was squared off at the back. If this is the same truck, it has definately been modified from the movie version.
