Just for fun

Took a couple hours and went down to our big year end car show.
Saw this thing there, so I thought I would share.
 
Wish I had taken more pics and got a brand name.
Looks real old school but they said it was a 1984.
 
European ?  Military ?
Kinda looks a bit like an older land rover.
 
They are turning it into an ice cream truck.

 
This thing is NOT built for comfort.
Check these seats, they look like bar stools.

 
Had 4 on the floor ( stick was about 5 ft long )
Little tiny pedals that looked like hockey pucks coming UP from the floor.
I only pray it had power steering!
 
They are planning on a 20 kw onan genny. ( 1100 pounds ! )
 
Once you throw in all the ice cream equipment, that thing will be a real beast to drive !
But hey, to each his own, right.

    A nice homage page from Larry Cultrera's Diner Hotline. A great site from a diner expert. https://dinerhotline.word...r-hotlines-divco-page/

    That was it !
     
    Looked like the roof was raised.
    Inside, the ceiling looked like a heavily re enforced tube frame.
     
    They said they had been working on it for 3 - 4 years already.
    And it was completely bare on the inside.
