What’s better than an old truck and a field of wildflowers?
Category Archives: Trucks
Towards the far left center (as you enter through the front door) at the LoneStar Antique Mall, there sits a beautiful example of American engineering – an 1931 Ford pickup truck.
It’s displayed with some vintage looking Mobil oil signs, oil cans, etc.
Remember when they were called “service stations” and they really were full service?
“Check your oil for you?” the uniformed man would say as he was cleaning the windshield.
I digress. You can go here for the Wikipedia article on the 1927-1931 Ford Model A.
Because of so many other items surrounding it, I couldn’t get a good photograph of the whole truck.
If you can’t go to the LoneStar Antique Mall in Haltom City, Texas, you can go here to see a nicely restored one.
This vehicle is on my fantasy wish list.
Bucket seats, 1 383-cubic-inch V-8, and “car-type air conditioning”
“Civilized in town as a car”
I apologize for the low quality of the pictures when enlarged. Even scanning them at the highest level didn’t help much.
