Welcome to VV jbeconolone66. Hope I spelled that right, or is that a miss print? Any way welcome to the forums. Very active in here and lots of discussions going on. Show us some pics when you get a chance. Would enjoy seeing your vans and truck.

That looks like a 39-47 Dodge truck chassis and wheels, and there's a dodge logo in front of the door. The body looks sort of like a Divco, but I don't recognize the model. I know DeKalb built on the Dodge platform, but their delivery trucks were much boxier looking. It's definitely from one of the coachworks that built milk trucks, though.

I've seen that one before. It's a Bedford chassis with a custom body. It was built as a bread van on the island of Malta. Someone obviously photoshopped it into the batvan.

Here's some info about it:

It looks like an early 50's International Harvester Metro van. I'm not sure how to tell which year, they all sort of look the same.

That seems like a Great Advertisement (Mobile billboard) for an interior Designer. That is Really Sharp Looking!
