Bought my friend`s Panel the one he had in his backyard for 12 years. He`s already fix up a 52 1/2 ton and a 56 sedan both Chevys. He was ready to sell it and the price was more then reasonable. I always admire the panel trucks. From the receipts the panel lived its life in California a brass tag on the radiator says Pasadena 19701. The panel is very solid, doors, hood, fenders line up. Some rust on right corner floorboard and a roof holes and a roof vent. The 235 is complete with the correct carb and linkage other then it doesn't have the stock rims this will be a much easier restore then the Good Humor Truck.
Plan on making the panel truck into a bakery truck, just like the Helms Bakery trucks that road down the streets of California. I`ve had good luck with the Good Humor Truck.I believe theres a market for a vintage bakery truck with back doors open up.With the cabinet drawers that roll out about three feet. With pastrys of different selections.Maybe a Coffee pot setup and a juice bar. Hook up with a Local Bakery to offset the cost.Still early development stages.I can see this happening a Good humor truck and a vintage Bakery truck at events . I`m having fun now just restoring the panel.photophotophotophotophoto
