Hello Bill,
When typing your post, look above the text area where font size etc settings are, see the paper clip icon for "attachments". Click on that and a window will open. You'll see the "upload file" and several "browse" buttons. Click "browse" and in the next window that opens search through your files and select your photo. Click upload and close window. Your pic should now be integrated into your post.

Gotta see this 4X4 Sightseer!

Regards,
W.D.

the odd 383, all 413 , 426 and 440 , were " RB " designated , extra deck height of the block required due to the longer stroke.

The guy has a 4wd 1950s Divco milk truck in the yard as well so I'm guessing it's a "thing" with this family....

Looks like a Dodge version of the VW Vandura.

That's pretty neat. It looks to be well crafted, I'd love to see the inside.
Just me, but the only thing I would have done differently (running gear wise) is, I would have used a tandem axle trailer. Both for stability/handling and safety.
