Ford Centurian-Lehman Cruiser?


New guy here, who is looking for info on the Ford CENTURIAN-LEHMAN "half & half" CRUISER I, II & III and/or on the similar trucks made by CABRIOLET, Inc or WESTERN HAULER.
(Western Hauler, as best i can tell, made LESS than 20 trucks total.- those are REALLY rare. - i know of exactly TWO that are still around.)

note: for those who have NEVER seen a CRUISER, they looked like the front half of an F-250 or 350 "snubnose van", with an 8 foot or longer custom-made "pickup bed" attached. (usually to a 1 ton chassis- a FEW were on 3/4 tons). - MOST had a "bench seat" that would "make down into" a double bed behind the 2 front "captain's chairs" - Cruisers were made to pull HEAVY trailers.
the Cruisers had either a 460CI V-8 with a C-6 auto trans OR a 6.9IDI or 7.3IDI diesel with a C-6 or a 4/5 speed manual trans.
(MOST of the diesels came with a Banks turbo, from the factory.)

i am seeking any production records, brochures & any other info, that anyone MAY have. = the FACTORY burned to the ground & all their records were lost about 1990.

i would also be interested in buying one (that runs) with a DIESEL to "fix up" (rather than restore) to pull my big horse-trailer & to sleep in, at horse-shows, rodeos & trail-rides.
(since i retired from the Army, i've become "about half a cowboy".)

THANKS for reading this.

yours, tex
