From Lonnie :

This is my 1963 Panel truck (actually a bread truck) that I got for free. It has no engine or transmission, with major rust throughout.

I have already replaced about 70% of body steel with some still to go.

I dropped in a 350 w/700 R4 trans. Fortunatly, the truck was an original auto so the switch was simple.

I found an original air conditioner complete with a windshield for $40.

This classic truck is going to stay basically all original -- no power anything -- and will have three rows of seats for the fam.

I've been building and working on these trucks for about 15 years and this one has required a lot of time and effort (or love -- whichever) and is my fifth truck in these years.
