Reading Enhances its Bodies for 2007

Reading Truck Body's newly enhanced service body, the 2007 Classic II, features heavy-duty hidden door hinges with overlapping door construction, a patented feature. Another patented feature is a galvanneal pressed diamond floor plate and tailgate inner panel that presents a rugged diamond panel surface.

Doors of the Classic II have wider, automotive-grade rubber door seals that use EPDM neoprene solid rubber. An audible alarm system comes with Reading's Latch-Matic wireless locking system. The alarm “guards” all compartments in addition to cargo areas on enclosed bodies. The Latch-Matic and alarm are available with the C2-50 options package.

The Classic II also provides:

  • Removable stainless steel knee brace that allows the tailgate to swing down completely.

  • Twice as many compartment dividers allow flexibility and better organization of parts.

  • Flat cargo area on most models (wheel boxes removed).

  • Modern rectangular rear lights (with optional lighting).

  • Redesigned top-opening Spacemaker lids with two props, new rotary catches, and push-button release.

  • Cargo area light (C2-50 options package) provides automatic lighting in cargo bed area.

  • Rub rail corner casting offers tough, reinforced corner and accents Reading's signature rub rail design.

The company's Lo-Pro Ready Van has been updated for 2007. It has an audible alarm system that works in conjunction with the Latch-Matic keyless/remote locking system. It provides additional security protection and convenience and helps guard all compartments in addition to the cargo area. It also has the Extend-a-Shelf drawer system and automatic compartment lighting that light up for 10 minutes when Latch-Matic system is unlocked.

Lo-Pro features heavy-duty hidden door hinges with overlapping door construction. Robust hinges provide extra protection against corrosion and do not require frequent lubrication or maintenance. Another patented feature is a galvanneal pressed diamond floor plate, providing better traction in the cargo area and on the heavy-duty tailgate.
