Not trying to hijack your thread. On the box, I would guess Boyertown. I had a '63 on the Ford chassis, a bit longer than what you show. The body you show looks very much like what I had. Mine...

Even if you install several electric fans, you need a shroud to get the air through the entire radiator area at low speed or when stopped. If you're OK at road speed, when the engine is making...
