OLD blurb about this truck:
This 58 W200 has been at VPWs for quite a while, I think they are asking $3,500 for it.
Despite it's 59 grill it is a 58 W200, I checked the VIN number. This truck appears to have been built up of parts they had laying around, as the front fenders are from a D400-D600 (no holes for PW tags, or the 6, plus they hang down to far). The cab appears to be correct for this truck, as is it a 58 cab, but incorrect hanging pedals have been used. The gas tank is for a Flat fender PW I think, it is at least not correct for a 58 W200, as the filler is in the wrong place. This is a factory flat six truck, but it currently has a 315 style V8, which has the number VT33420852(most likely a 57 D100 motor, but the number is not quite right). There is no bed wood, and the taillights are aftermarket. On the good side it has a good looking paint job, and there does not appear to be any serious rust or dents.
Serial number listed on the website L62L167581.
Serial number I got off the frame L6W2L10708, I may have read it wrong, but I don't think so.
Cowl tag on the cab reads L8893
