What is it?

I saw this yesterday at the end of a driveway, no signage on it and I was wondering if any know what it is. Thanks SNO

Judging by the shape of the rear wheel wells, it looks like it might be an older one, with a good chance of being powered by a Chrysler 318! Well built though. They were built in 2 halves and joined by a lengthwise seam that I've never seen leak. Latest ones, I think they were 290's, were pretty nice in their day.

Again, looking at the rear well, this one doesn't look like it's got wheel skirts installed. The wheel well is larger, making it a later model. 318 lesson learned, and still on a Chrysler chassis, they started putting big blocks in them. Starting with a 413, then moving to a 440 later. Travco wasn't the only one using small blocks either. Champion was using some 360 Ford chassis's back then too!

It's a rare beast - 130 made.

Apparently Johnny Cash used them a lot

Biggest mistake I ever made was giving away my 1968 dodge travco.
