it's a similar blue and it's a single cab... that's pretty much where the similarities stop as mine is a 55 barndoor... almost everything is slightly if not very different.

I thought it might be you.....was going to the motel to get milk....absolutely miles away didn't even clock your van but as I passed something caught my eye...a dove blue SC......
i must admit it was the split-est of seconds and the first thing that crossed my mind was that Kier had got a buyer & someone had picked it up from the workshop (even tho I know it's sat elsewhere).




So, u see....they do look the same thumbs up Razz
