So, what is it about Rampsides and Loadsides that make them so enticing to shorten? It must be the simplicity of cutting out a section of the truckbed and having the faces mate up so perfectly for the subsequent welding. A Greenbrier or Corvan would have the same property, but the frequency of seeing a truncated version of one of those models is far less.
I shot today’s CPotD at this year’s Corvair Ranch Open House. I guess the 56 means there's 39 inches missing from the original 95 inch wheelbase.
