She needs a "Ton"😏of work however she came with all new front clip sheet metal in pretty good shape. I was told she was a Crummie which is why she's long with X-tra windows. Has anyone seen one like this before ?
She's a C-30 with a V-8

When I was a kid, the logggers and tree planters refered to vans, suburbans, and 4 door pickups as "crummies". To me it meant whatever hauled the crew around.

How sweet it is. grin

A very unique find. thumbs_up Welcome to the "Bolt"

Short for "crew crummie"

Quote
(informal, British Columbia and U.S. Pacific Northwest) Small van, bus, or railway car used to transport loggers or other resource workers to and from the worksite. A common term when referring to a vehicle with a compartment separate from the cab, housing the silvicultural, logging or mining crew during transport.

Logging companies could be a good source for pristine pickup boxes. They would remove the box from a brand new pickup and install a crummie cabin in it's place. The unused boxes were stacked up in the yard.

Thanks for the definition! Growing up in the Midwest, I had never heard that slang before.
Looks like a fun project.
