E350 Transport Bus Conversion

Hello All!
We run a catering company and searched far and wide for a transport bus that would meet our needs as a storage and refrigeration vehicle. We wanted a bus without a chairlift, with a back door and with a passenger seat. We finally found one in very good mechanical shape. This is a E350 Cutaway with a low profile transit body. We are getting ready to begin the restoration and refit for our needs! We have watched this board for a long time and will be applying what we learned here. I will keep pictures posted

Could be a close race for "shortest shorty". My '46 is just 21' bumper to bumper.
