Unknown Make Custom Furniture Van

    Newer Older

    Can anyone identify this mystery van? The script name below the windshield is "Miss Skippy". There is also a nameplate above the "Custom Furniture" name above the windshield, but I can't read it.

      I downloaded the original size of this picture so I could zoom in on it. I think the thing above the Custom Furniture name above the windshield is not a nameplate, but a row of three small lights similar to clearance lights. However, below the grill there is a nameplate or perhaps a license plate with a nameplate above it that contains some writing, but it it totally illegible at this resolution. Looking a little closer the passenger door appears to be a "suicide door" that opens from the front. You can see the foothold is in front of the leading edge of the door. It appears to be a door from a standard car or perhaps a truck that has been mounted backward, which was done by reversing sides. that is the left side door from another vehicle was mounted on the right side of this van and vice versa. My guess is this is a shop built body, that may have been pieced together from more than one vehicle. The area above the windshield looks almost bus like.

      I considered the possibility that those were lights up there. I think you're right. Thanks for confirming that. Yes, I believe that's a license plate below the grille, perhaps with a license plate frame? Thanks for your input.

      Good thing this is in flat terrain Chicago. The massive rear overhang would be a problem in many places.
