I confess to enjoy wandering around boat yards, normally to check out any interesting boats or restorations, but occasionally it's the car park that gets my interest.
I believe this is called a panel van, built by General Motors in the late 1940's (I found pictures of a very similar example from 1948 through google). Popular engines at the time were the 261 which works out somewhere around 4.2 litres, certainly enough to haul around my sailing gear and sandwiches.
Whether the number plate was deliberate or not it's certainly fun, what a great car.
