Not really a panel truck but a sedan delivery might be close enough. I need to start on this if I ever get that Iroc-Z out of my garage.

It's a '55 and I think it will be a cool driver when I finally get around to working on it. Hopefully I can get it out of the planning stage soon. I would like to have it on the road two years from now.

Well seems im now the proud owner of a 53 Chevy Panel..even came with the trailer and spare parts. The comical thing, the guy i bought it from is an engineer (like me), has long grey hair and a beard (like me), is an airplane nut (like me) and goes by the name of "merlin". Way to weird. Anyhoo he drove it about 80 miles to deliver it but it will be going in the shop later this week for brakes and a go thru when my '59 pick 'em' up is up and running.
Will keep ya'll posted.

I just added 100 shot of spray and bought some Rocket Booster wheels for it! Can't wait for Ohio weather to break for more than a day!

Have all the parts to do the brakes, now need to get two other projects (and waiting on a third long term that needs to go in first) rearranged so i can get the panel in the shop hopefully this week.
Did blow some of the bondo off the side, seems someone decided to cut a 12 inch "window" right in the middle of the flat area. grrrr

Grrrr is right, my panel used to be a forestry vehicle in CA. It had a window on the passenger side,smaller version of a bronco type. The patch panel was done very well, and was skim coated by p.o......it was undetectable from outside,but the owner told me about it before I bought it though......yes, Grrrr to Windows on panel trucks...though it would eliminate a blind spot...

Ogre, that front end looks menacing! Tires look cool too...I'd love to start a panel club, but I don't think there are enough us...

Morning gang, thought i would post up a cpl pics of the damage stupid people can do to a perfectly good (grins) truck. Now my dilema is do i work this flat panel myself or sent the work it out. Been beating metal around for years and just got into the shrinking disc thing (works great BTW) but big flattish panels like this.....
