Still searching

A freind told me about a 42-47 bread truck/station delivery panel off I-84 between Biggs and Umatilla, it's one of 3 body styles I'm still looking for. Anybody seen it, I sure can't find it. The others are Panel and a COE. Here's a pic of one. Click the image to open in full size.

If I can't find any in the backwoods, I should be able to get them or at least a good lead at the Hot August Nites swap meet where I set up for 4 days every year.

Cool! I've got the new chassis ready and the cab mounted, just need a hood and side panels so I can build the front end mounts...............

This has been a long term project. As soon as the truck is ready I'm going to custom build a 3/4 size tow bed out of polished aluminum for it.

Drove real slow from Biggs to Umatilla yesterday and didn't spy anything like I'm looking for, but did stop to help a little ol' lady from Utah with a flat tire on 84 near Arlington who thought it was real strange Oregon would name a town after a birth control device. I couldn't stop laughing to tell her it was Condon not condom.

Nothing worthwhile that was affordable ($400 for a dented hood top) but will look in Alberta later this week.
