That truck has so many possibilities...

Tesla power train conversion.

Air B&B (tent on the flat bed for dining, bedroom, already there)

Put a veeate in there and call her ‘Done’

Sort of. The guy who built this truck (a recently deceased friend of mine) came from California, and apparently this type of build was all the rage a couple of decades ago. I know that I would have a hard time sleeping in it.

It's yellow, that's a detail that could have provided some verification.
Who does that?
Who does that? A desperate man dodging flailing man purses, pack of rabid hounds, and facing judicial retribution from the High Command, that's who. smile

Title is clear.

The challenge now is what to do with it.
It will not be a dually stake body with a sleeper, that is for sure.
I am leaning toward a one ton stepside.
The sheet metal is amazingly straight and sound without any Bondo as far as I can tell from a magnet test.
The yellow clearly needs to go.

Brother Hambone raises a valid point that still needs to be addressed. And the image's "patina" suggests that it may not be a recent image. I think we need to see a recent image that clearly shows Carl standing next to the truck. Maybe a hand written note from his wife that attests to legitimacy.

You can't really knock Carl for possibly resorting to desperate measures here ... membership in the 1-ton club *is* highly sought after. Many are called, few are chosen ...

General Milliman,

I request that you add a few details to your request. Telling him that he needs to stand next to the truck leaves many undesirable options open. I suggest adding while ... maybe holding up a printed paper with date of picture.

Just a thought,

Chris

Chris?? Is that you talking??? I can barely make out what you are saying .... it's really hard to hear you from that far outside the ODSS border ...

I will ask my staff to take a look at your request package. One of them will get back to you.

laalaa

Sorry, I was trying to yell into this can thingy. I will try sending a message via carrier pigeon next time.

Drafted Moderator!
A lot of editing has been going on in this topic!.
So, if someone is outside the ODSS borders, they are banned from being a member of the little 1-Ton club?
