This one is really interesting, as it was built from a damaged Franklin sedan, with styling cues from the rare Model A Ford special delivery p/u. The body sides continue the cab body line along the sides of the box and it has a clean looking tailgate. View attachment 100903 View attachment 100904
I've seen pics of several pickups built from luxury cars, especially Packards. I'm thinking that may be coachbuilt.

It is so well done, I thought so as well, but it turns out to be a hobbiest, who uses it as his shop truck. He is one of the most skilled Franklin restoration experts, based out of New York state. I've been trying to get ahold of George(Jaded Iconoclast), since it was someone from that area who bought his late father's 33 Franklin, as well as his 66 Maserati Sebring, that was one of the 6 pre-production cars built in the design studio.
