Thematic Photographic 76: "Orange" v.5.0 - Fast, Hot Delivery

You've seen this truck before most likely. It's been featured in other "Orange" themes here since its debut in February of this year. And a few other non-color related themes too. This is the working delivery truck for Seaboard Ace Hardware in Seaboard Station. It's a 1942 Ford delivery van, not quite "flawlessly restored", but very close. I can't say about the drivetrain, but the body and trim appears to be original or at least a faithful reproduction. I do know that stumbling upon it on a frosty February morning quite by accident brought forth a cry of delight. (Okay, fine, so I squealed like a girl. You wanna make something of it?)

Hello, Mojo in the back of the mirror. That's a lovely Ford.

Pretty! It's awesome that they're still using it.

I'd be squealing right alongside ya, so they'd have to take us both on.
