“Creamsicle” has been an ongoing attention and pleasure at HB Industries in El Cajon, CA. For my past 25 years. Bob Rowsell being the major contributor, took in all considerations. In addition to styling, Special attention was made to future serviceability such as circuit and wiring access to mechanical. Everything is as simple as a plug in at any International dealership. I have all receipts and researched a remarkable history. I have had 25,000 trouble free miles of west coast travel, Car shows etc. Contact Mark.
