(first posted 4/20/2013) Back in the Middle-Carstecone Epoch, cars were transported on trucks that were built by the the same company. Well, mostly. Obviously, AMC (and Packard earlier) didn’t build trucks. Richard Bennett forwarded me these, which seem to originate from hankstruckpictures.com. I’m not quite sure what to make of the sign on this one.
Studebaker had its car-hauling bases covered, though.
As did Ford.
Actually, Packard did build trucks until 1923, but after that they had to resort to the competition.
Uh-oh; these folks are cheating. At least, they could have used an International. Speaking of which, the AMC carriers I remember seemed to favor International.
This one’s not from hank’s. I’m not sure how common this Peugeot 404 car carrier arrangement was, but here it is.
Even VW took advantage of its own (limited) resources at the time.
Hank’s site is a cornucopia of vintage truck pictures, so don’t get lost there.
