    There's a similar but smaller early 40's IH moving van under construction that I saw the other day being built at a shop. Blown 426 Hemi with TF on a late 70s Chevy C30 dually chassis. :eek: Mint body with no rust, original patina and faded original sign writing. It will be kept as is with Alcoa wheels the only hint of what's under the hood. Will get some photos next time I'm there.

    So fantastic. I still want one. Came across a couple in the last 5 years but nothing restorable.

    EVERYBODY FANTASIZES,
    But when a person tells them where one is that drives, and functions, and is available.
    Then there is no longer interest. Must be "the Chase" that excites most of us..

  16. Is it just me or do you see the resemblance of a Tiki in the face of this van? :D HRP
