Interesting Front Cap- 1990 Ward

Saw this GM chassis 1990 Ward on Public Surplus this am.

Interesting front cap, I've not seen one like that before.

looks like their answer for a hightop.. I remember Carpenter being the first to really hit the hightop with their 86 revisions.. Waynes may have all been but I honestly cant remember if wayne just had taller windows but still a 72" ceiling or if they were 78s..

Carpenter and ward were pretty serious competitors at the time...

Yeah, but I don't think I'd dig the GM drivetrain/chassis. I'm not a fan of GM or Ford medium duty stuff.
