Who’s not fond of trucks? They are wonderful cars that warrant more attention! These images could change your mind if you’re not a fan. They are the most beautiful trucks you would ever use. They are, on top of that, uncommon as well. Feast on these bad boys with your eyes. You would actually wish that you could push them!
The Dubl-Duti was built by Chevy, while outside constructors produced a flat face cowl chassis on the distribution vehicles. It is possible that the one in this picture was used as a milk vehicle. This automobile was acquired by the hosts of Turnin’ Rust from a car collector named Trent. This may be the world’s last remaining truck of its sort! A website, however, says about a hundred of them were made. The YouTube channel’s hosts intend to return it to its former glory. Once they’re finished, we can’t wait to see the results.
Ford Model A Mail Truck
In 1928, the US Postal Service began utilizing the Ford Type A Mail Vehicle. In the ’30s and’ 40s, it continued in use. There were also the Model A passenger chassis and the Model AA one in operation. 4,300 Model A units were operating as postal carriers at the time. They came from the funeral coach to the hospital to the taxi with separate body choices! A fleet of cab types was used by the Postal Service and had external builders customize them. This is a reconstructed Ford Model A from 1931, which is at the Washington D.C. National Postal Museum.
Volvo L495 Titan
A fine example of Volvo’s iconic commercial trucks designed in the late ’50s and early’ 60s is the L495 Titan. It was also the Swedish manufacturer’s first truck to be fitted with turbodiesel and air brakes. In Europe, this was used a ton and served around the globe as a great long-distance alternative.
Bedford J1 Fire Truck
Get ready to fall in love with the 1965 Bedford J1 if you want retro trucks. This one was formerly owned by the Fire Department in New South Wales. It was sold throughout Australia through General Motors-Holden. The truck in question is in the Fire Collection Museum now. It was pictured in 2011 at the Sydney Antique & Vintage Truck Display.
Who said utility cars couldn’t look nice simultaneously? See the 1946 Model M-16 Truck 2 from Studebaker. This was the only engine with a 6-blade veiled fan in Studebaker M-series that had the Commander “Big Six” 226. During the Second World War, the M sequence was commonly used. This camion was photographed by the Museum of Hays Vintage Trucks in Forest, Calif.
Russian Military Truck
You can notice this battle relic at the Exhibition of Military Equipment in the Garden of Victory. This is a beautiful illustration of automobiles for fighting! This must be a copy, depending on the windows. Even then, it provides us a snapshot into such a fascinating country’s automotive history! Try it out while you’re in Russia.
Ford F-250 Highboy
The trucks of the Ford F Series have seen historical light and medium service in the past. The collection of trucks has been the best-selling automobiles since 1977 in the United States. Below, a fantastic model from the lineup can be displayed. In this unique clip, you are looking at a photo of the Ford-250 Highboy.
Old Truck, New Bed
In the United States, individuals equate the trucking business with GMC vehicles. The business produced several big, noisy, and tough vehicles in the past. In this shot, the ultra-clean GMC pickup was retrofitted to act as a nomad vehicle. Since they obviously know how to care for it, we respect the person who owns it.
This is the Jeep Wagoneer shot. It is due to come back in the next two years, and we are pleased about it. Let us, though, speak a little more about its glory days. It was a station wagon that operated as its trademark car from 1963 to 1993 for three decades.
The British Armed Forces specifically produced Bedford QL vehicles during the Second World War. They were the first vehicles for military use that the company produced. This tractor was reused as a high duty tow truck in the late ’60s. What made this model so fascinating was that the driver sat on top of the engine’s forward control car! After the war, this style only became famous.
Check out this classic off-road open-bodied truck. From 1944 until 1986, the Willys CJ-2A was in development. During its 42 years of production, the firm produced more than a million and a half units! The initial concept was intended to be used for cultivation, but the military eventually used it.
Although it doesn’t appear all that different from the previous ones, under the hood, the Volvo N88 was a beast. In the mid-’60s, the engine was considered innovative. They were part of the ‘Method 8’ series of trucks whose main goals were weight restraint, expanded service life, potential prospects for production, and reliability. The N88 seen in this image was taken at the 2013 Jack Hartogh Oldtimer Truck Museum.
1939 La Salle Wines and Champagne Delivery Truck
GMC and Chevy did not sell trucks with 4WD in the 1950s. Conversation kits were produced by the Northwest Auto Parts Manufacturer that would enable drivers to work on the transition themselves! In this picture, the beer delivery truck is the best thing we have seen in a while, if we can say so ourselves.
Fargo W300 Power Wagon
This fantastic car is the Fargo W300 Power Wagon. We are happy the one in the picture has been restored since then! After some time, if you wonder about the word, these trucks were rebadged into Dodge trucks. In the late ’20s, Chrysler Corporation bought them. The truck originated from Canada, where, until 1972, the term Fargo was in use.
Initially, Willy’s Motors manufactured the Jeep FC 150. The firm changed its name to Kaiser-Jeep later on! The current name was used from 1956 to 1965. There was a cab over cap configuration for the truck. The Jeep CJ-5 frame was used as it first came out, but a different body style was used. We can see that it is now a diamond of a collector.
1948 White WA122 COE Streamliner
You people, seriously, come on, this bad guy is electric! Do we need to tell more than that, really? The White WA122 COE Streamliner 1948 needs to be, if only for that, on this page. In London, Ontario, you can find this brewery. Let’s claim it sure understands how to build an entrance.
International Scout II
One of the most famous 4WD vehicles around was the International Scout II in the ’70s. From April 1971 until 1980, they were made. About half a million units were produced during that period of time. The reality was, though, that the design was actually frozen and postponed for a few years.
Ford F-150, But Different
Check out this early ’90’s Ford F-150. We all recognize that both the engine’s standard and the body of a workhorse is a classic. What happens, however, when you flip it literally? We really hope other drivers on the road didn’t fall into an accident while they were looking at the 1995 F-150 upside down!
Ultra-Long Bed Pickup Truck
In this photo, we do not have much information about the vehicle. Please get in touch with us straight away if you have any idea what it is. We would kill to know more about this rare car, after all. It’s not every single day that a very long pickup truck is seen.
You are fortunate enough to get a special vehicle named the Jeep Honcho. It was a trim package offered during the late ’70s and early’ 80s on the J10 pickup. On the stepside and short bed trucks, they were available exclusively. Back then, only 1,264 units of this kind were made. It was a good thing that the owner had taken good care of it.
1956 Powell Sport Wagon
You might already know the Powell Manufacturing Company if you like mid-century trucks! Check out the 1956 Powell Sport Wagon, built with a 1941 Plymouth chassis, a nose piece of fiberglass, an oak front bumper, and a back storage box! Although they are difficult to find, if you are lucky enough, you might be able to get one for a reasonable price. In 2014, this one was on Craigslist for less than US$15,000.
The Dodge D100 was a part of the Dodge D series and was considered a light truck. In the hope of upgrading the status quo in the world of pickup trucks, the company made this particular model. In 1964, it was introduced to the whole world. It is not difficult to confuse it with the Dude Sport Trim Package, which was very similar.
Ford Baja Bronco
The Ford Bronco was in production from 1966 through 1996. In 1971, this specific package was released and labeled through dealerships. Fast-ratio power steering, reinforced bumpers, a roll bar, fender flares, and automatic transmission were equipped with the Ford Baja Bronco. In 2020, the automaker released a new model version of this model!
1956 Mercury 600 Tow Truck
The truck may have both Ford and Mercury emblems, but it was actually the Mercury 600 Tow Truck of 1956. What makes such a special thing? These trucks were, for one thing, sold only in Canada. This makes it, as you can imagine, very rare! On top of that, we’re just huge fans of the way it looks.
International C120 Utility Fire Truck
We are delighted that there are lovers of trucks who never get tired of taking care of old units! You are looking at a fire truck from the International C120 Utility. This is either the 1961 model or 1962 one, from what we know about it. The AWD and the Travelette cab were the fire trucks. This one was taken at the LIRR Station in Southampton.
Dodge Power Wagon
For a long time, the Power Wagon has been in production. It was produced by Dodge from 1945 through 1981! In 2005, the 4WD truck went back to the lineup. If you would like, you can still get one of these. It has been rebranded under a different name, however. It was instead referred to as the Dodge Room during that reboot.
International KB Series
This was the brand’s successor to the K series of automobiles. It is possible to identify the International KB series through the “wings” formed by the widened lower grille. Because the restorers incorporated Toyota 4×4 components and bed liner paint into the IHC chassis, the restored KB in the photo was rather unique.
Dodge Ram Rod Hall Signature Edition
In 1990, there were only 33 units made of the Dodge Ram Rod Hall Signature Edition! It goes without saying that it was an extremely rare find. Cool cosmetic improvements such as the branded light fog lights and the brush guard were provided in the package. However, aside from that, they were standard-issue trucks.
Classic Ford Transport Vehicle
Did you take a look at a semi-truck or a bus? The truth is that both are the same at the same time. This unique vehicle was used at the airport in Zurich to transport passengers from one terminal to another. You can find it at the Lucerne Swiss Museum of Transportation! We bet that in this one it was fun to be shuttled around.
Ken Thomas Ltd Volvo F7
Just how popular the Ken Thomas Ltd Volvo F7 is, anyone in the classic truck circle can tell you. The picture was taken in the United Kingdom at the Gaydon Classic Truck Show. It was a limited edition, so only very fortunate people had the chance to drive these bad guys. Oh, what we’d give for one of those things!
Plymouth PY-50 Pickup
The reality is that the Plymouth PT-50 Pickup is less unusual than some of the items on the list. However, in order to find an original one with no modifications to its drivetrain, you still need a lot of luck. The PT-50 in this picture was discovered in Baltimore, Maryland at a car show. The accents of red and black look so good on them!
Jeep CJ 8 Scrambler
In 1981, the CJ-8, which is also known as the Scrambler, was introduced by Jeep. It was a variant of the Jeep CJ-7, basically. The main difference between the two models would be that there was a long wheelbase on the Scrambler! Between 1981 and 1986, it remained in production for five years.
During the ’50s, this series was introduced to the world. It was called The Big Bedfords after it was launched, since they weighed seven tons! They used to serve as emergency fire vehicles in Great Britain back then. There are still some of them in use in African countries. This was taken during the Classic Car Show at Battlesbridge.
Jeep Wrangler Renegade
As a compact, medium-sized off-road truck, the Jeep Wrangler was introduced. During the 1986 Chicago Auto Show, it made its debut. The “Renegade Décor Group” package was offered by the automaker from 1990 to 1994. These cars were made of black, red, or white, with a small sticker on the driver’s door.
1939 Plymouth Pickup
The Plymouth Pickup of 1939 is simply adored by many classic truck fans. This is a beauty which is timeless! After viewing its wood frame bed and classic Plymouth grill, you will fall head over heels in love with it. Kudos to the person who had this beautiful car restored! This photograph was taken at the History Park Antique Cars.
