Jim Hall has been restoring vehicles his entire life and is currently working on a 1938 FK Mack concrete truck that Hall believes had been sitting for more than 20 years before he took ownership of it.

The 80-year-old Portland, Maine, resident who works at Dirigo Restoration stripped the truck down to the chassis and has been working on restoring it since last December, according to a report from WCSH-6 in Portland.

Once the truck restoration is complete, it will be put on display at Owls Head Transportation in Owls Head, Maine. Other trucks Hall has restored are at The Bickford Collection in Yarmouth, Maine.
