Nice job on the doors. That 6 belongs there on this workhorse truck ... no mater what work it's destined for.

Creative and gorgeous!!!! the six cylinder is the perfect fit whether stock or modified.. Have you considered doing something really off the wall and building another one of these in stock configuration complete with a Dairy or Bakery branding on the sides and back doors? This truck is nce but a stock one - well, it sure would be cute, to say the least! Something along these lines... http://farm8.staticf..._25cf68ea60.jpg

Cool work as always Brett! I've been saving photos of this truck with the idea of building it someday. It probably started out as an REA or other delivery van, that was later repurposed by cutting out side windows for the knife sharpening operation. And yea, I'd be more likely to build it stock like this one than you would!

Awesome work! I may "borrow" a few of your techniques when I get around to replicating this:
It was my fire department's early '50's rescue van.

I have qestion how did determine the dimensions the rear box?

David- no need to scratch build the body. This one exists in diecast. Just change out the door and grill and you are good to go! I bought the three of them on eBay a few years ago. They weren't expensive.
