That half-cab reminds me of some trucks I usually see either in airports or the surrounding areas.

1951 International Harvester Metro Van a Fully Armed Operational Margarita Truck

1951 International Harvester Metro Van a Fully Armed Operational Margarita Truck for sale - International Harvester Other 350 1951 for sale in Venice, California, United States

Quote:
An iconic 1951 International Harvester Metro Van designed by Raymond Lowey in 1939 with rare Dually rear end in excellent running condition currently operational in the LA Basin as a Private Event Only, Frozen Margarita Truck.
Quote:
People practical fall off tour busses trying to photograph this car in Hollywood. Everyone you meet will love her. Loads of folks will yell "Jeepers Creepers,Yo," as they pass by referencing the horror film and incorrect car. Still others will take endless selfies while the truck is parked. Old people panic at sight of the thing. Young kids point in amazement. Party people cheer the moment the window opens and Fine Frozen Ice begins to flow and, Police....run the plates, pull up beside you, call out your name, and say "that's a Bad A__ rig man" then speed away as their partner gives a big thumbs up. There is no slight reaction to the sight of this truck in motion and everyone wishes it the best of intentions and projects onto it their dearest hopes dreams at first glance because it says... If this margarita truck is possible. What can I do... It is an inspirational American icon.

Half-cabins are not so usual in my country for cement trucks, honestly I haven't seen any upfitted that way. And even crane trucks don't resource to them so often.
