CPotD #139 (Show Me The Money)

Today’s image for FC Friday is of a converted Bell Telephone Corvan. Back in the 60’s GM was able to convince Ma Bell the Corvan was a perfect utility vehicle for them. The phone company, however, had some special requirements for their vehicles. Most apparent are the windows in the side door. Stock Corvans didn’t come with these. I’m not sure, but I believe GM also moved the exhaust to the driver’s side. The customer didn’t want to expose the sidewalk walking public to the smell while their vehicles were parked and idling at the curb. I guess if you’re going to buy enough of anything, the builder would be willing to accommodate your requirements.
