Anyone ever seen this Kustom AD?

I saw this truck years ago in a yard of a guy in town. It's pretty unique, check out the thinned cowl vent! Anyone know where it is today?

I saw that truck last week either on the Facebook Market place or the 1947-1954 Chevy/CMC AD Truck forums on Facebook.

Re: Anyone ever seen this Kustom AD?

The cab is in too good of shape to be my first cab that I chopped like that and had the International back window in. I didn't drop the bottom of the opening like they did though.

There are a ton of changes on that truck including the later model door handles and the hand made bed sides.

It looks like it might be sitting on a car frame like a 55/57 Chevy frame. Like the one that JD Fikes built in Waco in the early 70's that ended up with a pinstriper in Oklahoma for several years and was for sale on Ebay a few years ago
