our truck

Our truck is a fully-restored 1964 Grumman Kurbside delivery truck powered by a GM250 cubic inch inline-6 engine. The truck was originally built in Tarrytown, New York before spending much of its life in Indiana as a bread delivery truck.

 

Pit Stop Popcorn owner and founder Steven Sherwood purchased the truck in 2017 and returned it to New York and began the long process of restoring it to its current conditon. 

Restoration efforts included body panel replacement and repair, a new paint job, replacement of all glass, seals and door hardware, new wiring, upgraded lighting, and the build out of our interior kitchen.
