The van lacked badging, and I'm not good at sight-identifying cars built before about 1950 or trucks of any era. When I returned to my office, I Googled "step van." The first page of images included an advertisement for a 1955 Ford Step Van. It was this very vehicle, for sale last year in Cincinnati. An intrepid soul apparently drove it 750 miles to its current resting spot. I wouldn't be comfortable driving it a tenth that distance, but it does look like it would make a very cool and serviceable urban food truck.
Take it away, Dishwalla.
