Work Trucks...
« on: December 24, 2013, 11:33:46 AM »
Trucks in the 20's-early 50's(and newer too) got used hard, repaired over and over again, untill completely worn out. Then thankfully for us, many were parked in the field when replaced. Alot of companies and shops had a lettered up "shop truck", be it door lettering or boards on the bed sides or even modifications built on for use or advertizing. The farm trucks often had crude modifications, simple brush paint jobs, wooden beds, etc.
 
Lets see what you have photos of, old or newly taken, even just old stock trucks. I know they're in the background of alot of photos, usually ignored by most who are stuck on the "cool" vehicles.

I've always had an interest in having an old "work truck" and recently been collecting parts (again) to maybe build one someday.
 Anyone working on one?
