Dad and i just got a 1973 chevy 1 ton cube van that has a 13 foot box on back with sliding door that goes to front where the driver sits.

it has a really good running 350 motor with 4 barrel in it now.

we went and looked at it yesterday come to find out it is a smaller version of your bread trucks. Looks alot like a fed ex or ups truck have any of you pulled a car with these things? this truck is a 1 ton with duallys on it for 450 i got it with a new mod radiator, a set of new mod rims, set of new tires on the truck, and new glass thru out with no rust anywhere?

this will pull a 20 foot open bottem trailer with my b-mod on it

A dedicated hauler for the race car would be awesome. Plus with that style truck, you could sell parts out of the truck to make some xtra cash if you wanted to.

Paint it up to much the trailer, and put some vinyl on it and you should be good.

Been looking for a cube van myself, want one of them with a Van front end on it.

Several years ago(about 7 or 8) here in central Illinois Steve Hillard had an old bread truck and open trailer. He raced at farmer city on friday, Fairbury on sat, and danville on sunday, then many other specials. he drove that thing all over the place. not relating to the story he won the 3 track championships and ump championship too. if its reasonable id go ahead and buy it.

I'd buy it !!! I got a 92 G-30 cube van i bought and u can't go wrong with these things. It's great just leaving all ur stuff inside not having to worry about taking it out of the truck and such. I have the back of mine converted works out great. It had way over 200k on it and pulls the trailer like u didn't know it was behind it.I usually go 400 miles round trip to race so it's worked out very well over the yrs. Biggest trouble is the gas mil.
