    Looks nice. Is it an old Schwans Truck? Seen some on Ebay for a good price!

    It was a Schwan's truck. I bet the give away is the bumper. I really need to change it!

    Looks really good. Keep the bumper, it gives it character.

    It's a flat bed. We're using it for our V-box spreader and fertilizing unit in the summer.

    160,000 miles. I have a guy that knows a guy and picked it up for next to nothing. Cheaper than Ebay. I'm thinking of getting another.

    Theyre pretty good trucks, good luck with it! Does yours run on propane like most of the Schwanns trucks or has it been converted back?

    It does run on propane. For 2.29/gal. I didn't want to convert it back to gasoline yet.

    Whats the pros and cons of lp. Theres one for sale by me w/ 180,000 and 8.1. They want $6500 w/out a bed. How hard is it to switch it back?

    Con-Not many places to fill up.
    Pro-cheaper fuel

    I've been quoted around $1500 to switch it to gasoline. $6500 Sounds like the going rate for them when i've searched around. You wouldn't pay that much for it if you knew what I can get them for.
