1959 Chevy Olson KurbSide by Grumman Step Van
What is a Kurb Side?
The Olson KurbSide by Grumman (now Morgan Olson) step vans were typically used as delivery or transport vehicles much like the modern step vans of today. Thelma, our beautiful 60+ year old gal, is a KurbSide.

As I started my search for a unique vintage vehicle to give Chilljoy a home, I stumbled upon this lime green beauty in Dayton, Ohio in January 2019. As luck would have it, the owners were planning to list her for sale and so I beat everyone to the punch. I had just learned what a Kurb Side was the day before. Kismet? I think so.
Why the name Thelma?
Because we all love a good make over story, check out a few of the before photos. She used to be a roach coach. We haven’t been able to find any info prior to that.
Army veteran, Ben Leach of Dayton, OH spent the better part of 2017 working on her. He documented much of the build on his Instagram page.
Now that she was ours, it was time to turn our focus to building her interior to become a high quality frozen treatery truck in Columbus, Ohio. Enjoy!
Thank you for checking out our gorgeous gal! What do you think? Leave a comment below. Positive vibes only, ya’ll! 😉
