You have a very unique truck there!
Are you going to restore it?

That's a new one on me. I'm sure some '70's van conversion shop did it though.

If you guys figure out who might be looking to do the conversion have them shoot me a message I could take some more detailed pics and send them to them. Also thanks for all of the positive feedback from everyone because itb took me 7 years to talk the guy into getting rid of it. It killed me just watching the weeds grow up and over it

Weird, in my 30 years of Luv ownership, I have NEVER seen that type of conversion before, is there any manufacturer markings on the top?

I haven't noticed any particular tags on it but next time I go out to work on it I will take a closer look all around the top and see if I can find anything I'm pretty sure the guy I got it from told me it was called a blazette and that's about all he knew about it

I would love to have that just for the 'Weird Cool" factor. Put up some interior pics so we can see how they finished the inside. Is it a 4 seater or is the back just empty.
