Classiest pick-up I ever saw, and nice metalwork too!

Very nice job both the metalwork and upholstery. The question is, why didn't they mold-in the rear doors?

I thought about those rear doors too. Maybe they open up (internal door handle?) to show the spare tire and tool kit?

From Ozstatman's link to the other truck, the back doors were used provide access to secure storage. Good idea.

"From Ozstatman's link to the other truck"

Not just a truck, I believe that Ross has done in the vicinity of 10 to 12 "Packups".

Pics below of Ross with his V8 Clipper Packup when I met him at Hershey in 2012.
