Long chassis double cab

I was in Germany this week close to Darmstadt. Found this truck. What interested me most is the mounting points of the radius arms for a raised suspension.

RE: Long chassis double cab

This is my dream G. If I could find the original body parts to make this and find a way to lenghten the chassis I would do it. I'm sure that the parts needed from DC would be the same price as a house. So I wait to see one on sale in Germany...

The palm tree on the front fenders - nice touch. Did you mention what engine this vehicle has? I'd vote for the 290.
