Possible conversion candidate

This would be interesting as a conversion though it's hard to tell how much space there is in the back. If nothing else, it would attract some attention.

Fun!   If it is a 1952 ALF, that would explain its tire sizes:  11R20 front and 9R20 rear.   What's a 9R20?   That seems small for 26,000 GVWR.   It would also explain why it has a 6L71 (a non-turbo?).   Still, it could be an interesting conversion.
