    Saw an old P32 driving around recently. Who has a route that could use something that small? If so how many packages/miles do you do on average?

    Drove one just like that in middle 90s
    80 boxes 50 to 60 stops 0 pickups
    It would go like a champ in the snow

    280 to 300 miles

    We have one in our center. It sits out in the parking lot partially covered by a tarp because the windshield is shattered. I'm pretty sure a family of gophers have taken up residence.

    Apparently they use it during peak season. If I wind up getting it, I am going to request that the windshield stay broken and the gophers be allowed to stay so they can help preload since they'll probably do a better job anyway.

    Air driver delivery and pick up cars. The airport stili has one or two they use everyday. Before that we had a couple of Dodge Caravans.

    Good for taking a nap at the airport seat reclined all the way back

    We have one that's used for shuttling packages between the hub and the customer counter all day long.

    Now that sounds like a nice gig...

    You don't need a smaller car, you need more packages!

    Isn't that just a 500? Thought every center had those used for air drivers/airport runs (except that they're newer).

    We still use one of these on our super rural route with 26 stops. 500k and it runs like a dream.

    I thought the p-32 were the old mail truck size.

    Have a p700 now. The mountain guys are all getting p630 in the next month. Mine will probably have a hitch included. So I can drop off a t60 for my soon to be last pick up. Do 100 stops 165 miles with 5 pick ups. As of now.



    I used to have a sprinter van on my old area. I think it was called a p 450. Awesome ride there. The air drivers destroyed it

    P32 was built on a e250 chassis. Ford stopped making the chassis. It was 320 cubic foot box, smaller than the 500.
