Abbotsford business involved in restoration of 1950s bread truck

Vehicle to be showcased at car show this Saturday, July 23 in Vancouver

Abbotsford business 360 Fabrication has been involved in customizing a 1950s bread truck that will be showcased at a Vancouver car show this weekend before being auctioned off in Las Vegas.

The 60-year-old collector vehicle – now valued at $248,000 – will be part of the third annual Ultimate Car Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at the Hard Rock Casino.

It will then be part of the Barrett Jackson collector car auction in Vegas in October, with proceeds going to Shriners Hospital for Children.

Rick Francoeur, host of the Ultimate Car Show and owner of 360 Fabrication Inc., and his team worked with White and Peters Ltd. –  an auto body supply and spray equipment company – to customize the bread truck.

“This truck is an incredibly unique piece and I really think it will fare well at the auction,” said Mort Hall, general manager of White and Peters Ltd.

“It really was all the guys at 360 who made this vehicle look so amazing. I let them have complete control over the design and execution and they did an absolutely phenomenal job.”
