Semi-Trucks of the 1950s (Book) AUD $45.00

After WWII Americans were anxious to re-stoke the economy after a long "make-do with what you have" dry spell.  By the 1950s new highways were being built, new trucking companies were being formed and old ones revived.  Americans were buying newly-styled cars and the latest technologies once again.

Semi-trucks helped pave the way for this huge growth spurt in America with dependable trucks built by Mack, GMC, Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, International, White Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Diamond T, Reo, Autocar, Brockway, Sterling and others, many using the increasingly popular diesel engines made by Buda, Hercules, Waukesha, and Cummins, which helped their heavy loads haul quicker.

Ron Adams portrays this booming era with over 300 superb photos of trucks hauling cement, fuel, and a variety of goods to enthusiastic Americans.
