I hate to see it.
Exactly. I always appreciated the look of a fleet truck, so much so, I collected odds and ends back in the day. There is an add from a Ford truck dealer probably '96 when some of the Willig trucks were being liquidated. As a foot note, this Ford dealers lot is now a private small school bus yard.

Cool Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

We Had these at my old Company. Everyone has seen them. But you had to drive these stripped down uncomfortable, back breaking, sweat-boxes, that you had to climb into in a pitched enclosed dock. They had no steps and in an angled dock [most were because of drainage] you had to step on the thin wheelwell to get in. When they switched to the Louisville models the injuries went way down.Do I sound upset ? You bet your Bippy...We survived though most of us were from good stock

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

I drove a C-model straight box truck once. My buddy had a rafting company and hauled rafts from take-out back in it. This was in the West Virginia mountains. Take-out was down in a ravine at the end of an abandoned road along the river. Had to cross an antique single steel truss bridge over the river. I mean, only rafting companies and folks looking to fish used this bridge. I think everyone 'assumed' it was safe. Not driving every day for a living in one, but that was hairy driving down that old washed out dirt road through the woods and over that bridge... both ways!

My sign painter/truck lettering/artwork buddy has this one with a crane

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

I'd "settle" for a 3/4t. Yours are bth really nice. I have always hoped to have some sort of vintage chore boy like this, or a flatbed... or both, all tippy top ready to take into town for supplies.

These are 3/4t I had saved. :
