Question Cool/weird old panel truck(s) wanted - need suggestions

This is related to my job, but it's car-related, so I thought you guys might be interested and offer suggestions.

We're looking into getting a few cool old weird panel trucks to create some demonstration vehicles for our service. See photo for one vehicle that we like.

Anyone have any suggestions for vehicles that we should be looking for? It can be something off of eBay, Craigslist, or wherever. Or if you just know of a cool old type of vehicle (brand name, year, model) that we should be looking for, that would be great too.

Photos, links, names, whatever. All suggestions welcome!

one of the most iconic is the Divco Milk Truck, if you think of the hot wheels customized milk truck, its a divco...
favorite with the street rod crowd too.

How about a 70s Mog 505 radio rig?

Thanks guys. I really like the Divco trucks but it looks like they are really hard to find. There's not any on eBay.

Mogs are cool, but may be a little overkill for what we want to do.

What about an old Grumman or Chevy postal van?

postal vans or ih vans - you may also consider ambulances and newer cargo/chassis vans (meaning from the late seventies/early eighties)

do you have to walk in it? if not, ih carryalls are cool, and still kicking.

maybe early/late 60's suburbans?

What you need is the ol' Jeepers Creepers truck.

I love the late 50s/early 60 Jeep cab-over pickups. I bet there were panels in that model line-up.
