Default wireless truck 2k1 body

ques: how many radio vans with 2K1 bodies exist?
There was one featured at a ham meet in Ont.
Mine is in northern BC, still part of western command (ex Brian Asbury)
still missing cables and aerial leads. I'm told it should be a chev not a F15A.
CMEC has Harry moon's Parts truck

The war museum has one that I believe came from Andre Gibeau, it is also mounted on a F15A. I have one that is still a long way from done. Last I heard Dennis Walker still has a body for future use. Mel Norwich has a body off the frame that is completely disassembled (down to removing all of the skins from the body frame, the cab and shassis are in a separate location) Craig Tanner is another suspect.....

Default Wireless body

Albert Baines of Petrolia has one....him and Walter Brand did a little boarder raiding this past Saturday and secured one. I had a look at it on Sunday and was astounded at how great the condition of it was after so many years of neglect.

Default Wireless Truck 2K1 body

I have one as well, although it is still a long way from being finished. I would really like to find some photos of that vehicle in theater. I have some from the one in the sigs museum in Kingston, some from the internet that are, I believe from the Ontario Regiment's, but no pictures of it in action or otherwise. Would any one have any?
