Does it come fully stocked with Miller Lite?

Then no.

Well then they'd be asking $2,550 for it.

At $2500 it's worth buying just to park on your front lawn to class up the neighborhood.  It doesn't even need to run.

Only if you put it up on cinder blocks.

Yupperz best way to really piss off your HOA........
Fark user imageView Full Size

My neighbor across the way from me tries to give me "Shait" about my recyclables (aka stuff I find to build with)..........I've told him to get fk-ed on that noise. We don't have an HOA other than road dues (road maintenance only). No one other than the County ca. tell me to stop picking up fire wood, camp trailer (now a chicken coop), truck caps or liners (now shelter for the pigs, goats, dog & the truck bed are great weed blockers) so again to my Azzhatz neighbor......🖕

there's nothing stopping you from repainting it. i'd be proud to drive around with giant bud light cans.

Budweiser would fit Missouri better.. except they let InBev buy them out.

Dear Penthouse Forum, I never thought it would happen to me, least of all in the back of an old Lite beer delivery truck.

7/10.
Should have added rats in your art projects are just a natural part of nature and that the snake in the unmowed  lawn keep them in check anyway.
Could have also mentioned how you are a generous host for having all of the block parties at your place and that those cans are actually recyclable or will be part of a project. Some day.

Convert the barrels into a mobile Distillery. Now you have a mobile chemistry set ready to explode the moment the engine decides to backfire which from the looks of it may happen often.

maybe he's just jealous because you don't invite him over to your three day weekend biker bashes. he probably stands in the window with tears brimming in his eyes, just wishing someone would come over to borrow a 3/4" drive ratchet for a quick repair on the el Camino. but noooooo, you never ask him to join in your Reindeer Games.

Seems like an easy convert into a mobile bottle/can beer-bar. Could run good business in the right spots.

Engine swap, cut an upswinging hatch on one side, a couple of big coolers in the back.

And, of course, paint the cans to pabst blue ribbon, so you can charge hipster prices, and stop having to shave!

If it was local, I'd be tempted ;p

back when music festivals were a thing, this would've been perfect to repaint with some trendy craft beer.

You wouldnt even have to get the damn thing running, just pull the box off, and put it on another truck.

Seems like a great idea for a smaller brewery.

CSB:
My neighbor worked for a company that builds AGV's. Miller/Coors hired them to install a full AGV system in their loading docks. During the proofing phase of the project they do test runs here in Michigan but instead of using dummy product, Miller/Coors wanted the testing done with actual pallets of beer so they sent an entire semi trailer stacked to the brim with beer pallets. Testing done after a week they say "we can't guarantee the quality anymore so just go ahead and keep it if you want".
He hit me up for my truck and we each ended up with 4 pallets of beer in our garages. We were VERY popular with the neighbors all summer because we were both going "it's gonna skunk if it sits so just come grab a case if you need one".
Unfortunately, cancer got cool neighbor guy.
*End CSB*

Whatever the new owner does, I hope they don't turn it into a tacky Bondomobile. That would show that they have great taste for using less filling.

Yeah, but it's probably still a 1982 refrigeration unit... better to just buy a modern refrigerated van and take it to a custom body shop.  As of 2020 it's completely illegal to manufacture or import R-22 coolant.  There's still a stockpile, but it's dwindling.

Reefer units for a box that size are cheap to begin with so I'm sure a good used unit could be had for $1500 or less. If someone is gonna pat to restore it, another $1500 is a drop in the bucket.
