Kinda hard to tell, but it looks to me like it is a fuel delivery truck. You would have separate compartments to deliver several types of fuel all in the same trip. (diesel, gasoline, kerosene) They were and are still popular in the rural areas to deliver fuel to farmers or anybody else who would buy in larger quantities.

The first thing I noticed about the school bus is the odd windshield. Most school buses or box type trucks that used only the cowl section had flat glass, which was easily made and cheap to replace. I would think the glass used in this bus was from another vehicle more mass produced, maybe a city type bus or maybe another brand of big truck.

I'm not sure what ford had in mind with this one, and sorry for the bad picture, the place was pretty crowded.

I'm not sure if this one was Ford made or not.

Here's the short bus!

And of course, an old REA truck.

There were a lot more, but these are the only odd-ball Fords.

Saw the oddball thread, thought I'd throw mine on the pile as well. '51 F-3 with a custom built service body, purchased new as a regular pickup and built by Canby's appliance repair out of Visalia, CA. to be their service rig in 1951. Complete with a hand-cranked lift gate even! Served this purpose with Canby's till 1957.

Only 6 years in service seems it was hardly broken in.

Arctic y block, indeed she didn't see much abuse, which i believe is why she's still in such good shape today, aside from needing some standard maintenance and greasing it didn't take an awful lot to get her back to functional.

ibuzzard, I would consider a trip to Santa Cruz if'n i hadn't already been conned into moving a couple one-lungers for a friend of mine, I love old iron and all, but an excuse to get outta the heat in the valley is always nice!
