next best thing to a proper Pano?

looking at one of the google ads that appeared here saying something about the 'new' pano. had to look and this is what i found.

www.bullmotorbodies.com.au

havent really looked through it properly but i reckon with a few custom mods it could be close enough to the real deal.
well thats about as close to a Pano as we are ever going to get again

cool Re: next best thing to a proper Pano?

i'm not a huge fan of any panelvan, but they have been done well...

Maybe some of you guys could have a tweak with the in photoshop to get em looking just right? After all the fun you's had with the ex taxi photochopping :)

Re: next best thing to a proper Pano?

I have to say, even though it's not a panelvan (no direct acces from
inside the cabin to the van-area), I think it's a very nice design, looks better than a flexi-glass canopy and is without a doubt more practical.
Mind you, that thing does obscure you vision a helluva lot though.
And is it me or does that rear-end give it a bit of a Ferrari-look ?

Re: next best thing to a proper Pano?

i think if you payed them enough you could drive out with a 'pano'. roof re-seamed, entry to the rear from the cab...all the stuff a real pano has. either way it is a good option instead of the flexiglass.

It looks better than the $6000 option on the Commy utes.

Isn't that the point? Looks like it would be an ideal sparkie truck. Ever tried to work out of a panell van, there is a reason for all those poxie Express's and Hi-Aces. These look a good alternative to the tool on tabletop setups.

The 70's panel van era of foam mattress and hope of a shag is best left there in the 70's, save for a few well preserved examples of the machines.
