Always love to see the rust of time. Interesting photo.
These are a lot of fun to find and then try to get the right angles. Not quite there with this one.
🎼 See the USA in your… 🎧.
Nice! Do you think a radio in a truck like that would have cost extra? Could you even have purchased one?
No doubt, a radio would cost extra. I believe this truck is based on the ‘Master’ series cars and a push-button radio was an option on the cars (http://www.secondchancegarage.com/public/chevrolet-masters.cfm). The following link suggests a radio was an option for the trucks: http://www.faxonautoliterature.com/1939-Chevy-Radio-Manual-Original-Car-Corvette-Truck-P29412.aspx
Rawls, thank you. I’ll have to look these links up. You’re a great librarian.
To let everyone know, Rawls at my request, tracked down the truck and identified it for me. Thanks Rawls.
Lovely colours. The beauty of decay. I like it.
Jim, thank you. I’ve got more of this truck. I may come back to them but too many more current images.
