I'll take a look at that one near me to see what door panels it has. I think it's still outside.

So I guess someone after the FD buffed the lettering off and it has since faded. My '95 Suburban was a Sheriff's Dept. K-9 wagon (vinyl letters) and you can still see the markings in the right light.
He guy I bought it from bought it from the fire bepartment, in his town, in 2002. He said they removed the lettering then.

Beautiful rig! I love that you are preserving it, and I am looking forward to seeing it finished.

Are those tires bias ply or radial?

Dang Joe! I was really hoping you would go with a 6" lift and some 35s! Maybe some custom gold leaf lettering for the sides, (Joes Plumbing), shag carpet in back..mirrored ceiling!
