I asked Udo to install a tow-hook in Germany because in Italy it's difficult to register it. Here are some pics.

These are the awful wires needed for emergency turn signals and operating of trailer or Eriba lights.

Tank gauge is not running. In these days I have to check if the problem is electrical or more probably inside the tank.

99,000 miles through the vineyards...

Water for the windscreen is operated by this awful switch probably mounted in UK

Nice non functioning US radio set:

Carpet from Mali (Africa) acts as a seat cover:

The spare wheel is still there...

Horror Vacui...

Environmental stickers:

Class II Truck:

Truck with gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 6,001-10,000 lbs

Rust is hungry of the lower engine hood...

6V battery...

Not so clear pic of the chassis plate:

A new muffler had been installed by Udo for German registration:

At the present moment I have these German documents:

The TUV approval:

The black license plate I have mounted to impress the people at Italian meetings. I like it!

Original USA license plate that used to be on the bus before it crossed the Ocean:

Documents from USA I found in the cab. The bus was circulating in Sonoma, California (north of San Francisco).

This is the 'M' plate I found behind the front passenger seat. I tried to read it.
22 4 means the vehicle was manufactured on 22 April
428 means North American export package for commercials
UF is an export code indicating
the destination of this pickup was in USA, San Francisco (CA)
265 is the model number: double cab left hand drive with right cab door
3 seems to mean it has a synthetic resin paint
Grey is the color of the paint: Light Grey (L345) body with Grey (80) trim
1102605 is the chassis number: from production schemes we understand it's been produced in 1963
