Truck Thursday: 1975 Volvo C304 6×6

[singlepic id=3316 w=720 h=540 float=center] There’s rare– Unimogs and Pinzgauers.  And then there’s rarer– the Volvo C303 4×4.  And then there’s the rarest– this magnificent Volvo C304 6×6! [singlepic id=3317 w=720 h=540 float=center] [singlepic id=3318 w=720 h=540 float=center] Alex at Red Label Automotive is refurbishing this rig for a client-friend.  Fairly recently, it was living a semi-abandoned existence in San Francisco as a dilapidated and ad hoc shelter for some unfortunate souls.  As you can see, Red Label’s transformation is coming along nicely.  Aside from the windshield wipers, the exterior work appears to be almost complete.  The engine and interior are still works in progress.
