I've had this M - series delivery truck for a long time now and had great visions of what I would do to it. But now I realize I'll never get to it and would like to see someone put it together. It's a Boyertown body, made here in Pennsylvania. I originally thought I might put it on an ambulance chassis if I couldn't find an M-series chassis. Any way heres some pictures. If interested drop me an email. And thanks to everyone on this forum. I'm happy to say the 1956 bus I posted last year is now just outside of Pittsburgh having the mechanicals done for it's new owner. Location 4 miles from I-95, 1/2 mile from last exit on PA turnpike , and 12 miles North of Philadelphia.

Aw Crap!!:( EXACTLY what I'm looking for and it's all the way in Pennsylvania![8][V] How perfect for my handyman work that would have been.[V]

Rats!:(

Well, I hope someone gets this wonderful old truck from you soon, Larry. It would be a dream-come-true for me. Unfortuneately, it would be a serious streach for me to pay what it's worth, let alone shipping.[V]

Nice truck though![:p][:p][:p][:p]

Brent, I LOVE the OOPS truck (LOL)!!:D:D:D

That needs to be sectioned right above that belt line and slammed on a low chassis for a interesting and unique panel street rod! I choose Woodys Rods or Steinkamp! C'mon boys,Foose that bread box!!

Looks to be a fun one you got there Larry~

I know of about 1/2 a dozen M series rigs within 10 miles of here
I could use to bring this one back... [:0] :D
(not to mention all the other Stude trucks & parts kickin' 'round...) ;)

Sorry Dave, I thought you'd be over it by now. ;) Buy this M series and you'll forget all about that other van. :)

$600.00 buys it. The truck is very solid with only a little rust through near the front left corner window. I got it from a junk yard that was closing and they were going to crush everything the next week.
